Bobcat Belles' Dance Company
The Bobcat Belles dance company was created in an effort to create a foundation of dance and strong moral character for young girls through affordable weekly dance lessons held in our new fine arts facility. Classes are taught by Bobcat Belles director and drill team alumni and assisted by the current Bobcat Belles. All of the funds raised from our classes go toward helping the current Bobcat Belles. Our dance classes are ballet/jazz/hip hop based. The styles compliment each other well, as one builds a technical foundation and the other sharpens and strengthens while focusing on performance and personality. The ballet and jazz aspect of the class focuses on alignment, technique and fluid style, while the pom and hip hop elements work on performance aspects such as strong arm motions, formation awareness, and stage presence. Students will learn alternating styles of routines from a jazz or pom routine to a hip hop routine to perform at the end of year class show offs and one select routine in the Belles’ Winter show. Participants should see improvement in increased flexibility, coordination and strength, and confidence, as well as specific techniques for jazz, ballet, hip hop, improved balance, posture and grace, development of rhythm, and creative movement.
