Junior Performance Team
The Aerial Dance Junior Performance Team is lead by aerialist, Bea Mcgowen, to provide the younger students with the opportunity to refine their skills and knowledge as performers. With a background in dance, years of aerial experience as a professional Aerialists she will teach the Aerialists how to create routines.
Curriculum in the Junior Performance Team covers much needed skills such as flexibility training and conditioning, as well as performance skills such as costume care, and stage presence. The goal for the Junior Performance Team is to encourage teamwork and a sense of community, as well as prepare the young aerialists for what can be expected in future showcases and/or the Varsity/Aerial Teen Performance Company. In exploring this goal we hope to provide the team with performance opportunities focusing mostly on group productions three times a year during Flyers Debut.
Junior Performance Team is a weekly class that meets Thursdays at 4:30pm, due to the limited time this is not considered a regular curriculum class. Thursday's times are set aside for team practice and new lessons cannot often be expected. Because of this, training outside of Thursdays practices is expected from each team member. Prerequisites and basic knowledge in aerial dance is required before coming to practices.
JPC starts with aerialists at the age of 6 and continues with them until 12 years of age. Once aerialists have reached the appropriate age, they are encouraged to audition for the Varsity or Aerial Teen Performance Company.
Annual Registration fee: $150
