24/7 DANCE COMPANY


NEW CLASSES STARTING IN JANUARY!

--See below for more information about each class.

--Limited spots available in each class, sign-up TODAY!


To enroll or if you have any questions, please contact Director Dana Wilkerson at 435-724-5544 or email her at EliteDanceExtreme@gmail.com.


Pom/Pre-Cheer:

Dancers in this class will learn Pom routines as well as cheers! Dancers will work on their Pom routines weekly, however 1-2 times per month we will have a guest instructor come teach cheers! Each level is a 30 minute class. Both levels of Pom/Pre-Cheer will perform at our Annual Spring Recital in May. Costume required to perform. This is a Non-Competition Class. Ages 3-18.

*Level I: Pre-School - 3rd Grade

*Level II: 4th Grade & Up


*Tuition Rates: Because this is a new class that we are trying for the remainder of this dance season, we are offering EXTREMELY low monthly tuition rates.

*NEW Students: ONLY $15 per month

*Returning Students: ONLY $12 per month

*Current 24/7 Dance Company Dancers: ADD this class on for ONLY $5 per month


Drill Team Prep:

This is our second year offering this class. In this class dancers will learn various techniques & movements to prepare them for drill team. Dancers will learn various kicks, leaps, turns, jumps, etc. We strongly encourage this class to any dancer wanting to try-out for drill team. Many dancers who were enrolled in this class last year not only made the DHS drill team, but they were selected to compete in the competition routines. This class will have the option to perform at our Annual Spring Recital. This is a 45 minute class held weekly. To enroll dancers must be in 7th grade - 12th grade.


*Tuition Rates:

*NEW Students: $25 per month (Only $115 for 5 months if paid in full by January 13th)

*Returning Students: ONLY $20 per month (Only $90 for 5 months if paid in full by January 13th)

Intermediate/Advanced Technique Class:

This class is for dancers currently on any high school drill team OR for any dancer (ages 14 -18) who is dancing at an intermediate/advanced level. It is recommended to have at least 3 years of dance experience if not a member of a high school drill team. In this class dancers will not only work on having strong ballet technique, but using their ballet technique in other types of drill team routines including jazz & kick. This class primarily focuses on ballet technique; however, dancers will also learn technique in jazz movements & kick. Again this class is for intermediate/advanced dancers, primarily to help girls who are already on a high school drill team to improve their technique and be ready to work hard to have a higher chance of being selected for the competition routines. This is a 45 minute class held weekly.


*Tuition Rates:

*ALL Students: $25 per month (Only $115 for 5 months if paid in full by January 13th)

*SPECIAL: Enroll in this class & add-on our “Drill Team Prep” Class for a total of ONLY $35 PER MONTH! *This discount is offered for current students, returning students, AND new students. (MUST enroll by January 13th to receive this discount).*

THIS THURSDAY is our Christmas Performance for Parents at 6 pm. Dancers need to be at the fair building and ready by 5:30 pm.



NOTE ABOUT CHRISTMAS PERFORMANCE FOR PARENTS:

Attention Dancers & Parents: Our Technique Classes (Non-Competition Classes) & some of our competition team members have been learning Christmas routines during the month of December. They will be putting on a small performance of these routines for their parents on December 16 (Thursday). The performance will be held at the Duchesne County Fair Building. This performance is for parents only, due to limited seating. Please do not bring other relatives, etc. However, you are more than welcome to video tape your child's performance. The performance will start promptly at 6:00 pm and will last roughly 20 – 30 minutes. Dancers performing in this Christmas recital need to be at the building and completely ready by 5:30 pm so that we can stretch and make any last minute preparations as a group. Parents will not be allowed for seating until 5:45 pm.


Listed below is what dancers need to wear as their costume for this performance. We have tried to come up with costumes with items that most dancers already have on hand. If you do not already have an item, such as a Santa hat, please let Dana know ASAP and she can let you borrow one. We do not want anyone to have to buy costumes.

Example: You can wear a black leotard and skirt with your winter hat, scarf and gloves OR you can simply wear Christmas colored clothes with your winter hat, scarf and gloves.


Beginning/Intermediate Jazz & Ballet Technique II (Wednesdays 5:15 – 6:15 pm): Please wear black bottoms (shorts, capris or pants) and a CHRISTMAS COLOR shirt or leotard (red, green, white or silver). Also please wear a RED Santa hat. If you do not have a Santa hat, let Dana know ASAP.
