Styles Taught at Backstage Dance Connection
Mommy & Me: A program designed to experience the dance studio atmosphere and basic dance fundamentals, while having the freedom to express creativity through songs, rhythm, and movement. These classes are set in a relaxed atmosphere where fun is the #1 priority, and the best part is; your mommy can join!
Tumbling: Basic tumbling is used across a range of sports, even those you don't expect. The most obvious are gymnastics, acrobatics and cheerleading, but skills learned in tumbling can also assist athletes in diving, competitive trampoline, and dancing. Tumbling combines strength, power, agility and coordination that, when performed properly, results in an exciting and dynamic sport.
