Team Twirl

Team Twirl is a brand new non-competitive performance group that dances at

community events, theme parks, and other cool venues.

 

*Note that enrollment for Team Twirl is currently closed due to Team dancers rehearsing for Christmas performances. Enrollment for Team Twirl will reopen in December 2018!

TRAIN

The Team Twirl performance group is designed for students who want to get a little more serious about their dance training. It is open to any students who meet the minimum class requirements plus a Team Twirl class. Team Twirl classes will focus on dance technique plus serve as rehearsal time for upcoming performances. Note that Team Twirl students must attend 70% of their required Team Twirl classes. This attendance requirement will be calculated/assessed during the following three time periods: September-December, January-March, and April-June.

 

The weekly class requirements are as follows:

 

Team Twirl I (ages 5-7)

  • At least one Ballet/Jazz, Tap/Jazz, OR Musical Theatre Dance I
  • PLUS Team Twirl I class*

 

Team Twirl II and III (ages 8+)

  • At least one Ballet class
  • PLUS at least one Musical Theatre Dance class OR Hip Hop class
  • PLUS Team Twirl II or III class* (Team Twirl level placement is determined by Twirl teaching artists)

*Team Twirl classes will focus on dance technique and will also serve as rehearsal time for performances.

 

PERFORM

In addition to Twirl’s year end show, Team Twirl will participate in 5-6 performances a year. These will include community events, nursing homes, and theme parks. For the 2018=19 season Team Twirl will perform at Hershey Park in the spring, and looking ahead to the 2019-2020 season, the group will perform at WALT DISNEY WORLD, Twirl owner Sam Sinns’ old stomping grounds!

 

SERVE

At Twirl, we believe that dance is a gift to be used to serve others. Whether dancing at a nursing home or in a Broadway show, the dancer’s main obligation is to share their talents as a gift to the audience. This is at the heart of Team Twirl. Serving others by bringing joy through the art of dance is what it’s all about. No competitions. No trophies. No awards. Just a simple focus on giving to the community.
