The Aerial Dance Varsity Performance Team was started to provide the students who are 9-18 years old with the opportunity to refine their skills and knowledge as performers.
Curriculum in the Varsity Performance Team covers much needed skills such as flexibility training and conditioning, as well as performance skills such as stage makeup up, costume care, and stage presence. The goal for the Varsity Performance Team is to encourage teamwork and a sense of community, as well as prepare the aerialists for what can be expected in future showcases and/or the Aerial Teen Performance Company. In exploring this goal we hope to provide the team with performance opportunities focusing mostly on group productions. The Varsity Performance Company will be performing at the North West Theatre Company as well as a end of year production along with other local events.
Varsity Performance Team is a weekly class that meets Tuesdays at 4pm, due to the limited time this is not considered a regular curriculum class. Tuesday's times are set aside for team practice and new lessons cannot often be expected. Because of this, training outside of Tuesday practices is expected from each team member.
