The Mooresville Arts Partnership offers several Dance Team classes. These include our Competition Dance Teams, Jr. Cheer and the Community Dance Team!
All teams feature a select group of dancers ranging in ages 4 to 18, who enroll in several classes during the week. The classes each student participates in are chosen to fit their desired interests and team. These students are committing themselves to be part of this select group to further their training in dance.
~ Jr. Cheer, MAP DIvas Team is made up of our younger petite and junior students who enjoy a variety of skills. For the 2015 season, this team will participate in our mini Cheer & Pom team. These students participate in festival performances, parades, community events, as well as competitions locally & nationally in the Winter & Spring.
~The MAP Competition Team is for dancers who want to experience competing while training with master teachers and focus on improvement as a group and individually. Competition team students study all styles of dance including Ballet, Tap, Lyrical, Musical Theatre, Jazz, Hip Hop & ACRO, as well as several technique classes. Ballet and Jazz are core requirements, with additional classes available in the styles which most interest the dancer.
Teamwork, dance technique development, opportunities to perform and showcase your talents, positive critiques, and fun, fun, fun are all reasons to join a MAP team!
Everyone is invited to join but it is a commitment for an entire year so you have to LOVE dancing and having a really good time!
