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 learn a variety of dance routines. Beginning and intermediate classes will teach basic dance skills, and experienced dancers will work on more advanced tap, ballet, and jazz routines. Instructed by Toni Nelson (who has taught tap and ballet in Golden Valley for more than 40 years) and her daughter Nicki Cullen (who has been teaching with her mom for more than 20 years). Participants should wear comfortable clothing, such as leotard and tights or shorts (NO jeans) and provide their own tap and ballet shoes (black is the preferred color). To perform in the spring recital, students must be registered for Session II to ensure costumes can be ordered and fees collected before ordering. The cost of the costumes is kept to a minimum and there is only one costume per student.
