https://gloriag.com.ar/gn65d7114 Merit/Reward-Based Training Classes:

Merit/Reward-based training classes provide on-going weekly growth encouragement training, for the beginner, intermediate, and advanced dancer, in all styles of dance, ages, 2.5 to 102. Classes are designed for fitness, dance technique/performance, team building, confidence, posture, and presence, positive social skills, refined listening skills, mental and physical stamina, discipline, greater sense of responsibility, goal setting and achieving, as well as new friendships. The skills gained in each class, help to enhance all areas of one’s life.

  • The Merit/Reward-based training classes are on-going with no set beginning or ending dates to the training program to give the student the ability to continue challenging themselves to more advanced levels of ability when they are ready.
  • Dancers challenge themselves to advancement through three yearly informal/inhouse showcase/progress presentations where dancers advance through three rankings (Example: 1A, 1B, and 1C etc.) within each training level as well as the ability to graduate to more advanced levels when ready. Carefully planned curriculum and training are given to successfully master the skills of each ranking and put the control in the hands of the student as to how quickly they grow and advance.

https://markmadsen.com/2022/11/17/tdyvvih Honors Concert Series:

The Concert participation opportunity held in early May, equivalent to the super bowl in its magnitude, prestige, and grandeur, is now offered separately from the Merit/Reward-based training classes giving the student the opportunity to continue training uninterrupted. The choreography and rehearsals are taught outside of the weekly Merit training classes (day(s) and time(s) TBD) over a shortened period in preparation for participation in this prestigious event. The Concert is the next level up to the success of the dance experience. It is a collaboration of like-minded dancers interested in participating in the added benefits of confidence, and composer in front of an audience, the united challenges of working with a team on a professional stage, and a sense of completion in successfully applying and presenting the skills gained from their on-going training, and the opportunity to share the stage with our Competition level dancers.

  •  Honors Performance Concert Series involves a participation fee as well as costume charges for each dance.  Every participating dancer is responsible for these fees.
