~Morgan, TNT Dancer
Our advanced teams are a collection of the brightest stars throughout our various in-school residencies; students spotted embodying energy and excellence in every class are invited to join this scholarship team. These students are able to learn advanced choreography, theater/stage terminology, as well as the etiquette of being a professional.
Top Notch Team
Our advanced teams are split into two groups determined by age and experience. Our younger dancers make up Team TNT, while our seasoned performers have moved up to Team XD. They practice after school for the opportunity to perform in a variety of community events and in our annual Cuyahoga Falls school performance.
"There is no greater feeling than
watching the transformation of these students...as they become performers and ambassadors of the art of dance in their community. They have a light in their eyes and a fire in their hearts fueled by the knowledge that continuously striving for excellence can lead to accomplishing the unimaginable."
~Erica Piper, Advanced Teams Coordinator
