Dance Class Philosophy

 

The VSTAR team believes in ensuring that our children reach their goals. VSTAR was formed in March of 2010 to encourage the continuation of dance as well as embrace female youth by increasing their physical activities, revitalizing their health factors, and allowing them to increase their muscular endurance and strength. Additionally, featured guests also address the participants on topics that include but are not limited to: personal hygiene, health awareness, physical awareness, coping with stress, education, professionalism, and ways maintain a positive attitude.

In addition to the monthly dance clinics are the Summer Dance Camps that are held yearly. These week-long sessions include a variety of dance styles that include tap, jazz, hip hop, hip hop funk, lyrical, praise dance, novelty, modern, and technique. Experienced instructors work with participants in small and large group settings in efforts to prepare for the Dance Showcase at the end of the camp session. There is also a panel of special guests invited to speak in empowerment star sessions for the female youth throughout the duration of the camp. An extension to our dance clinics and camps are our dance classes. We offer ballet, jazz, and modern throughout the year. A recital is performed twice a year for young ladies enrolled in our dance classes. Spaces in classes are limited. Please check our calendar for schedules and registration deadlines. Dance clinics, camp sessions and specialty classes are open to all female youth, ages 3-18 individuals and dance teams.

 

Teamwork

 

At VSTAR we believe that every STAR is special and important. It is our goal to re-enforce and remind our clients of how vital they are and that all are welcome within the facility. Being a part of a team is a huge commitment and it requires cooperation and effort from every single member of the class.

Illness or Injury

If a student is too ill to dance please keep them at home, so that they can rest and become better. Do not send them to the studio where germs are easily passed and the other students can be easily distracted. If your star misses 2 or more classes there is a strong possibility that she will not know the choreography for the recital.

A dancer’s body is their instrument; healthy eating habits and good sleeping habits are essential to a young dancer. There are no make-up classes. Your star will have to catch up on any missed pieces that she may not be familiar with upon her return.

Hair and Make-up

Hair must be worn away from the face (preferably pushed back into a pony tail or bun)

Make-up will be worn for dress rehearsals and all performances.
