Cheer America is a non-profit corporation that offers cheerleading and dance programs to youth. Students will learn popular junior high and high school cheers, chants, choreographed pom/dance routines, parade marching techniques and other performance skills required for cheerleading tryouts. The program promotes physical fitness, personal esteem, working as a team and respect for authority. Students also get to participate in clinics, competitions, special performances and march in parades throughout the state. At the end of the program, students will perform a group recital. Students receive a certificate and medal.

Tap & Ballet

Ages 4+
Students will enjoy learning dance routines to a variety of music. Beginning and intermediate students will learn basic dance skills, while experienced dancers will work on more advanced tap, ballet, and jazz routines. Please wear comfortable clothing such as leotard and tights or shorts (NO jeans). Students provide their own tap and ballet shoes (black is the preferred color). To perform in the spring recital, students are required to attend BOTH Sessions II and III. This is to ensure needed costume-ordering and instruction time. Costumes are ordered in December for the recital, and fees are collected before ordering. The cost of the costumes is kept to a minimum and there is only one costume per student. Parent viewing will be the last class of Sessions I and II only. Instructed by Toni Nelson, who has taught tap and ballet in Golden Valley since 1974, and Nicki Cullen, Toni’s daughter, who has been teaching with Toni since 1992.
