Basic previous dance knowledge is recommended but not required This class is geared toward those preparing to try-out for poms teams. This is a mixed-level class that focuses on the technique, style and execution of “dance team” or “poms” team movements as well as how to prepare and what to expect during try-outs. This class will prepare students for try-outs by working on dance technique such as; flexibility, leaps, jumps, turns, arm placement, and style. Other areas of focus will be working on learning, retaining and creating choreography. Students will take part in “mock try-outs”, where they will receive constructive criticism and positive feedback to further develop their skills, and be given tools for calming nerves and putting their best foot forward during poms clinics and try-outs.
