Summer Punch Card: Info & Schedule

Information

WHY WE LOVE PUNCH PASSES

With the punch card systems there is no pressure to attend a set weekly schedule, but also the opportunity to attend multiple times per week if desired!  Classes are split up by level and our amazing staff tare excellent with all ages.

  • IMPORTANT: Each week we  also have jazz/ballet, cheer or hip hop camps; whatever style camp is happening that week (i.e. a cheer camp) we will NOT be offering the cheer punch pass that week.  Using cheer camp as the example, students who want to attend cheer on their punch pass during a cheer camp week, may instead use that punch pass any day(s) at cheer cheer camp.  Number of hours of camp attended = number of punches to card.
  • Do NOT FORGET your punch pass!  We will not allow students who forget punch cards into classes.  If it’s your first class since registering, you will receive the card at your first summer punch class.

Class Style Details

Cheerleading – studio 2

Our summer cheer leading class will work on improving jumps, kicks, angles as well as learn cheer dances to strengthen memorization of movement.  Some weeks we will stunt, but stunting will not be the focus.

Tumbling – studio 2 

All levels will stretch & go through basic skills to ensure form is correct.   From there, skill practiced will vary per level.  If you’re looking for “dancier” tumbling (ariels and new forms of tumbling tricks), attend the acro classes. If you’re looking for tricks more commonly associated with that style (Head springs, kipp ups etc) attend the tricks class.

Hip Hop – studio 1 

Hip hop is our most popular style because its so dang FUN!  Students will work on a mix of hip hop styles, including tutting, waving, house, choreography combos, freestyle etc.

Tricks – studio 2

Our tricks class work on the skills that are more commonly associated with that style (head springs, kipp ups etc). Levels in these classes will vary, as we have different steps for each trick that students will work on based on their current skillset.   If you’re looking for “dancier” tumbling (ariels and new forms of tumbling tricks), attend the acro classes.  If you’re looking for tumbling (from cartwheels to back tucks)  attend the tumbling class.

Jazz Tech/Movement – studio 3

Technical training in turns, leaps etc, as well as choreography combos to improve memorization skills and emotion in movement.

Acro  – studio 2

Acrobatics (Acro for short) is a class for those looking to practice “dancier” tumbling (ariels and new forms of tumbling tricks).  Working flexibility is also a focus, as it is incorporated into acro tricks.  Levels in these classes will vary, as we have different steps for each trick that students will work on based on their current skillset.  If your looking for tricks more commonly associated with hip hop (Head springs, kipp ups etc) attend the Tricks class.  If you’re looking for tumbling (from cartwheels to back tucks)  attend the tumbling class.

Ballet – studio 1

All levels will stretch for 10 min, tumble for the bulk of class and then spend the last 10 conditioning.  To be a strong tumbler its important we also work on endurance and strength training.
