Competitive Program

FOR THE LOVE OF IT!

Trilogy Academy Competitive Program

Trilogy Academy Competitive Program is the competitive stream and selection of classes for a dancer at our studio. Dancers will participate in a variety of disciplines to build a well-rounded dance and baton twirling education. Classes are offered in Acro, Ballet, Baton Twirling, Contemporary, Hip Hop, Jazz, Lyrical, Musical Theatre and Tap. Group routines will be choreographed in these classes and dancers will participate in studio attended competitions as well as the year end recital. Dancers in the Competitive Program will be eligible to apply for a solo or duet.

Acro

Ages 7+

This program is for our dancers and twirlers aged 7 to adult. Acro focuses on strength, balance, and flexibility while combining dance and tumbling. Students will be guided through a structured program that promotes goal setting and achievement. This class provides opportunities to improve technique and body awareness that is an asset for all our dancers and twirlers.

This class will be an addition to a dancer’s existing competitive program schedule to enhance technique and strength. Students enrolled in this class will likely not compete an Acro routine at competition, nor perform at year-end recital, although that decision will ultimately made by the class teacher. No costume fee necessary for this class.
