Mom’s Day to Play – Ages 2 & Up  (Not a Recital Class)
Mom’s Day to Play can help you add in some ME TIME to your busy schedule each week. This also gives your children the chance to interact with other children and teachers, have lots of fun participating in various activities, and even learn something new. Mom’s Day to Play is your chance to get a break without worrying about your children while you’re away. Please make sure your child has had a snack or meal prior to arriving as we will not feed them.  Also if they need a change of clothes or a diaper please provide that as well.  They are allowed to bring a unique or labeled water bottle to have with them otherwise no other food is allowed in the building.

Gymnastics Classes – Ages 3 & Up
Our Gymnastics classes focus on basic through advanced tumbling skills.  Beginners work on somersaults, backbends, cartwheels, and handstands, learning correct technique so they are able to progress to more advanced tumbling skills like walkovers, handsprings, power tumbling and aerial movement.   Students that enjoy perfecting thier skills and are more serious about their tumblinng training advance into our our NAC Tumbling Team & USAG Tumbling & Trampoline Team

Jazz – Ages 6 & Up
Jazz, like all dance, stems from the basic techniques of ballet. The difference between Ballet and Jazz is that Jazz moves faster than Ballet and showcases quicker dance movements. Beginning students learn basic fun dance movements like the Grapevine, Chasses, and the Jazz Square. Advanced Jazz students work on leaps, turns and dance progressions. Learning the correct Jazz technique is important, and a focus during class, along with stretching and conditioning. Jazz is an important class if students desire to join our dance team or school dance and cheer programs.

Hip Hop – Ages 7 & Up
Hip Hop is similar to street dancing or club style dancing. You see Hip Hop in popular music videos.  Hip Hop focuses on isolations, high energy rhythm and movement, and fun Hip Hop dance combinations.  All Hip Hop classes perform in Recital.

Ballet – Ages 5 & Up
Ballet training is the foundation for all forms of dance.  Ballet training provides a solid technical preparation for all other styles of dance.  This beautiful form of dance provides individuals with confindence, poise, strength, flexibily and discipline.   We recommend that students serious about their dance future enroll in Ballet class.

USAG is a Competitive Tumbling & Trampoline Team Team that competes in Tumbling, Trampoline and Double Mini Trampoline. Athletes typically attend 5 to 7 meets locally, regionally and nationally in the Winter and Spring. Nationals competition is held in the Summer. This team is a good progression from our N.A.C. Tumbling Team. Students must be a level 5 or higher (be able to perform a round-off back handspring) in order to try out for the team. Tryouts for this team are in July. Many athletes feel that USATT is a great alternative to traditional gymnastics. Students compete at a State, Regional and National Level with a smaller time commitment than traditional gymnastics. There is less risk of injury, less cost and more fun!
