Dance Team is made up of a group of girls who have had previous dance training and wish to continue to explore their passion.
The team provides the girls an outlet to strengthen their technical and performance skill level, ultimately helping build a self confidence and ability to work/communicate with others. The girls are also able to channel their creativity by choreographing their own pieces that will be showcased in the school year’s performances. The team helps the girls discover how to expand their passion for dance in their futures by visiting college dance days and taking class trips to dance studios in New York city.
The team is split in two segments; Jazz and HipHop. Each practice begins with a group warm-up stretch, followed by strength and endurance training. The girls then work on their technical abilities through across the floor and center floor combinations. The end of practice consists of working on choreography. The team competes at local NJ competitions. The team also encourages many other styles of dance including lyrical, modern, ballet, tap etc. These performance opportunities take place at the Christmas concert, May concert, charities and other performances.
