Mighty Cheer & Pom
Believe it or not there is a difference between Cheerleading and Pom! Cheerleading consists of stunts, tumbling skills, chants and a small dance section. Pom has the technical dance skills and is a dance based routine using the cheerleading clean and strong arm motions and jumps with the use of poms. We’ve created a class that has both, with a small variation on the cheerleading aspect due to the tumbling and stunt skills set required. Students will still learn the foundations of both Cheer and Pom and will be able to learn a routine of each. Much like our comp teams this class is full of fun, however is very physically demanding on the body and requires full attendance and commitment, strength and confidence to ensure everyone in the class is learning and progressing together and that students and skills are able to be executed each and every week. But don’t let this intimidate you, it’s also very rewarding, full of new things to learn and promotes great team building!

Gold AcroDance
Acro Dance is a stunningly beautiful art form. It is also highly athletic, very difficult, and can be unsafe if not taught and executed safely. It is a genre of dance which seamlessly fuses elements of lyrical gymnastics tricks, balancing, tumbling, and jazz. Students learn Acrobatic tricks such as handstands, cartwheels, chest stands, elbow stands, walkovers, side and front aerials, and tumbling lines. For stronger dancers, superior technique, and incredible results, we offer the Acrobatique Curriculum. The Gold Standard AcroDance education program is a strong, effective and innovative curriculum that provides ongoing education opportunities and support for our MJDS Qualified Acro teachers to ensure we’re providing students with the latest safe, efficient and progressive teaching methods. Our AcroDance Students will love presenting their skills and combining them with dance moves to create a show-stopping routine to perform at our mid-year showcase and annual concerts. Student will receive one costume for their concert performance along with one ‘Safe Parent Spotting Workshop’ throughout the year so your child can continue to practise and develop their skills safely at home.

Tiny Twirlers (Saturday)
The start of your child’s dance education is so important to us! Our staff are all passionate about dance and know how amazing a journey this can be for your little one. We also know what a big deal it is leaving a 2 or 3 year old in our care. So, we work very hard to ensure that our classroom is a safe place for your child where they will feel loved and accepted and be happy to come along each week. We also make sure that our Tiny Twirlers have lots of fun! Early education is all about play, so we focus on teaching fundamental movement skills through games and activities, engaging your child’s imagination and developing sensory perceptions. Your child will be in a small class and have the opportunity to use a range of props and equipment to get the most out of their lesson.

Petite Feet Hip Hop & CheerDance (Saturday)
Hip Hop and CheerDance both involve elements of strength, precision, energy and technique, all of which are explored through a range of methods in this combination class. Our dancers have the opportunity to learn a range of Hip Hop movements with fun descriptors (such as “I’m cute, put it down” and “Push the ceiling!” ) which can then be easily recalled and used in routines and combinations. They also learn the fundamentals of Cheer, including lifts (and how to do them safely!), arm placements and also combining elements of pom (which is a different style to cheerleading) with the use of pom poms, always a favourite part of our lessons! The variety in these classes make them perfect for energetic and active kids who love to use their energy in their performances. Students learn one Hip Hop routine and one CheerDance routine to be performed at our end of year concert.

But it’s not all serious hard work- we focus on making sure your child enjoys their class each week! We use variety and games in our lessons to make sure your child can’t wait to be back in the studio. Students learn one Jazz routine and one Ballet routine to be performed at our end of year concert.
