What are Technique Classes and why are they important?





A Technique class is exactly what it sounds like. 
It serves to improve the dancer's technical dance skills & improve abilities & performance quality. 
All students hoping to be on one of our competition teams must complete at least 1 year of technique before they are permitted to tryout unless otherwise approved. 
Technique is great for preparing the dancer for school dance team tryouts.
If you are looking to enhance your abilities, flexibility, turns, leaps or overall form, we strongly recommend these classes!
We offer Beginning, Intermediate, Advanced & Adult Technique.
