Rising Star Academy

RISING STAR ACADEMY

Not everyone wants to compete on a cheer or dance team, so we have developed a fantastic academy-style class program specializing in tumbling, cheer fundamentals, and dance for active youth who want to learn the skills without the commitment of being a part of a team.

Rising Star Academy helps with the conditioning and skill progression needed for success. Our rich class curriculum provides a fun and safe environment to learn new skills while promoting fitness, self- esteem, and self-confidence. Additionally, we host quarterly intensives and clinics that focus on specific skills, such as back handsprings and back tucks, as well as general skills and instruction in performance technique and choreography. We offer multiple levels of each class to ensure the best guidance for every athlete.

Specialty Classes

Specialty Classes are supplemental and do not change an athlete’s progression through our structured tumbling courses. These classes are to help those that need a little extra instruction to master specific skills.

Classes are offered on a quarterly basis during Super Saturday events!
Please watch for registration announcements.
