  • How does dance benefit my child?
    Through our dance programs our athletes acquire several valuable traits that benefit them in the dance world and beyond: confidence, spatial awareness, flexibility, time management skills, ability to work on a team, leadership, passion, discipline and overall athleticism.
  • What is the difference between recreational and competitive dance?
    Athletes participating in our recreational program have classes once a week (per style). In every class, our instructors establish a great dance foundation and work to enhance and advance every athlete's skill set. Our competitive team is called "Charmers." These athletes train three to six hours a week and travel all over the country to perform. Team membership is acquired via audition or invite.
  • What is the proper attire for classes?
    For all classes, hair should be pulled up into a ponytail or bun, earrings should be taken out and skirts are not allowed. On the trampolines, socks or special trampoline shoes are required with no exceptions. Team athletes should train in basic leotards and will purchase a competitive leotard and jacket for meets.
  • What is the difference between recreational and competitive trampoline/tumbling?
    Recreational athletes train once a week for each session they sign up for. Taught by enthusiastic and caring coaches, these athletes learn skills at an appropriate, progressional pace. Competitive athletes train two to four times a week, year round. Summer and Fall seasons are spent in preparation for competition; athletes spend their time getting stronger through creative conditioning work outs and are challenged with learning more advanced skills. Winter and Spring is when all that hard work pays off at competitions across the nation!
  • How many competition teams are there?
    We have three teams: (1) Competition Team, (2) Pre-Team and (3) Hot Shots.
  • I'm concerned about Team costs, is there a way to lower my child's tuition?
