2022-2023 FULL SEASON PERFORMANCE PROGRAM INFORMATION (RECREATIONAL)

We are so excited to be back at it and preparing for what is sure to be another memorable year for our entire dance community!

The SBDC Performance Program is geared towards students ages 3-12 and includes weekly dance classes, baton twirling classes, or cheerleading classes.  These classes are full of energy, technical training, artistic inspiration, and physical fitness; all culminating with a performance in our amazing year end recital showcase, “Rising Stars”, in June 2023.

The Performance Program is recreational and does not involve any dance competitions.  The program runs from September 16th, 2022 until June 2023 with ribbon testing, watching weeks and small performances throughout the year.  These students work towards our year end recital showcase which takes place at Bert Church Theatre in June.

This program is ideal for students just starting out in dance and is a low maintenance/high reward investment.  It is taught by certified, passionate, and experienced teachers and is the feeder to our competitive program.

Class sizes are 10-12 students per class depending on the type of class being offered.

PLEASE FIND LISTED BELOW A BRIEF DESCRIPTION OF OUR PERFORMANCE LEVEL CLASSES:

PRESCHOOL DANCE (Ages 3-4)

Preschool Dance Classes are combination classes meaning students train more than one dance discipline during their class time.  Students must be age 3 by September 17th in order to participate in this class.  Students explore basic dance training, rhythm, movement, singing, and imagination while learning basic classroom etiquette, socialization, and the joy of dance.  Parents do not attend weekly class with their dancer; however, we host a watching week for parents in October, December, February, and April.  These students perform a rehearsed routine on stage in our Year End Recital Showcase.

KINDER BALLET (Ages 5-7)

Kinder Ballet is an introduction class to Ballet technique and Ballet training.  We use this program as a feeder into our competitive Ballet program.  Students learn the Primary/Grade 1 syllabus from the Royal Academy of Dance Program and are eligible for ribbon testing at the end of the season to move to our competitive program.  This program focuses on dance technique while still evoking imagination, creative movement, whimsy and fun!  These students perform a rehearsed routine on stage in our Year End Recital Showcase

KINDER JAZZ (Ages 5-7)

Kinder Jazz is a class perfect for an energetic dancer who loves music and is ready to put some steps together.  These students learn Jazz using the ADAPT method and focus on basic technique and performance abilities.  Rhythm, counting, and musicality are a main focus in this program, along with balance, flexibility, and coordination.  These students perform a rehearsed Jazz routine on stage in our Year End Recital Showcase.

KINDER/JUNIOR ACRO (Ages 5-7) (Ages 8-11)

Performance Level Acro classes are taught using the Acrobatic Arts syllabus and are introductory classes to acrobatic and dance training.  Students learn basic and beginner tumbling, flexibility, strength, and balancing while also getting an introduction to Jazz training.  Students in this program are eligible for ribbon testing at the end of the season to move into our official Acrobatic Arts program.  This class is perfect for dancers who have a ton of energy, are bouncing off the walls, and love high energy music.  These students perform a rehearsed routine on stage in our Year End Recital Showcase.

KINDER/JUNIOR POM CHEERLEADING (Ages 5-7) (Ages 8-11)

Pom Cheerleading combines Acro training with basic Jazz dance movement and Pom syllabus.  These students are often called on for performance opportunities in our community.  Students work on beginner skills and performance projection while dancing to upbeat music and working on flexibility, isolated movement, and basic tumbling.  This class is perfect for all the sassy kids out there with high energy.  Pom poms for these classes must be purchased through the studio in September.  Students use studio provided pom poms until theirs arrive.  These students perform a rehearsed routine on stage in our Year End Recital Showcase.

PERFORMANCE BATON TWIRLING (Ages6-10)

Baton Twirling is getting back to our roots at SBDC and a program we are so excited to start offering.  Students will learn basic baton twirling and synchronization skills alongside Jazz and Acro dance.   Students in this program are often called on for performance opportunities in our community and will learn and perform a rehearsed routine in our Year End Recital Showcase.  Our Baton Twirling Program is not affiliated with the CBTF although taught by Certified and World Level Champions.  Our goal with this program is to create a safe, non competitive and joyful baton twirling experience geared towards performance.  Batons can be purchased in Airdrie at East Side Sports. These students perform a rehearsed routine on stage in our Year End Recital Showcase.

 KINDER/JUNIOR HIP HOP (Ages 5-7) (Ages 8-11)

Hip Hop is a great class for dancers that have a lot of energy and focus, love music, and can’t stop moving.  This class goes over an introduction to Street Jazz, basic Hip Hop isolation skills, Pop and Lock, and Breakdancing.  Students engage with their teachers in a more relaxed environment and bust a move to top of the pops music.  These students perform a rehearsed routine on stage in our Year End Recital Showcase.
