Description: Varied genres, all skill levels
Skill building: communication, teamwork, problem-solving, freely using your imagination, choreography, picking up choreography, engineering (obstacle courses), and more
Everyone contributes to the whole of the evening:
3-6y typically creates 1-2 8 counts together and then creates and runs an obstacle course
7-17y typically has been creating choreography together, recording and then freestyling or hanging out together, playing games like hide and seek or tag
Each Friday is in and of itself unless the group decides they want to continue something. Performances are possible if they choose to

ART: anything that requires the imagination to get to the next level – from spray painting, culinary, dance, and sculpting to trades, entrepreneurialism, coding, and science.

Thursdays 5 pm-7 pm
Saturday 12 pm-2 pm
Description: high commitment level, skill, and confidence guaranteed to increase; predominantly performance dance in every genre and culture; travel to training and performances; year-round
These are the serious dancers/performers that are held to a higher standard b/c they have chosen to do so. Grades must be up, diet must be controlled (for wellness, not cosmetic purposes), and discipline level is high. Multiple public performances, and multiple genres covered but strong hip hop and lyrical influence (freedom in movement). Leveling system to include periodic testing.
Skills to increase: physical dance ability, flexibility, tumbling, teamwork, awareness of surroundings, professionalism, accountability, respect, and most importantly, the greatest focus: SELF-ESTEEM AND -VALUE.
Ages: no age determinant
