Jazz Floorwork/Technique – Students work exclusively on technique, flexibility, leaps, and extensions.  These are all elements that will make their dance more interesting and impressive.  We recommend that students who take Jazz and Pom Pon take a technique class as well.  Students who take this class do not learn a routine and will NOT perform in the recital.

Combo I & Combo II – These classes are designed for beginning dancers ages 3-4.  There is an emphasis on body awareness, musical rhythm, imagination, and basic coordination.  Combo classes focus on teaching young children the basic elements of dance.  We introduce basic tap, ballet and jazz moves. In addition, these students get to move to the gym room where they will learn some tumbling basics including forward rolls, stradle rools, mini cartwheels and low balance beam work.  Combo students who enroll in the Recreational Dance Session will learn a routine to be performed at the Annual One Step Above Dance Recital.
Acro-Dance – Dancers will learn to use tumbling skills to enhance their dance routines. Some acro routines use a lyrical jazz as others use a normal contemporary jazz style. Most junior acro-dance are musical theater/character routines while the seniors are more technical.
Cheerleading Prep – This class concentrates on preparing students for local school cheerleading tryouts. Motions, jumps, building and cheers will be covered during the prep class. We recommend all students take an additional tumbling class to better their chances with school cheerleading tryouts. A specific routine is not taught in this class.
Pom Pon – The class concentrates on preparing students for local school pom pon tryouts. Motions, jumps, spins, leaps and some building will be covered during the pom class. Routines will be learned through out the session to be performed at the recital in the Spring.
Tumbling – Our tumbling classes focus primarily on tumbling and floor routines. Students are placed in beginning, intermediate or advance classes depending upon age and ability and advance at their own pace. The same emphasis is placed on balanced training. In order not to overdo it, we invite everyone to visit the online casino http://cc-tv.nl from the Netherlands and rest there as much as you want. Emphasis is placed on proper form and execution. With the exception of a low beam, traditional gymnastic equipment are not used. Gymnastic skills acquired at One Step Above are most often used for cheerleading and pom pon.
