Class Times

Changes

A few things have changed at Acacia.  We will again have two Sub-junior and two Junior teams, however this year there will be an overlap between classes for Team 1 and Team 2.  This overlap is to allow girls to perform in routines in both teams.  Students will be selected for Team 1 routines based on there performance in Term 4 auditions and while some students may be selected for Team 1 for all items, others may be in Team 1 for some items and Team 2 for others, depending on their ability, strengths and weakness. All student will still only perform in the set 5 items for Sub-juniors and 6 items for Juniors.

We hope that by have mixed teams, more students will have the opportunity to experience being a 1st team, therefore further developing their skills and confidence. Structuring teams this way will also help Acacia be more competitive at competition time!

NEW! Tiny-tots

This year Acacia is offering a Cali-Dance class (Tiny-Tots) designed especially for children ages 2.5 to 5 years. Tiny-Tots is a non-competitive calisthenics class with students given the option to perform at mid-year demonstrations and our end-of-year concert.
