We will emphasize the importance of proper warm-ups and stretches as well as cool downs to keep in condition. Daily classes will include basic technique in all levels. Championship steps will be reviewed thoroughly in the Intermediate and Premier classes. One Highland dance will be taught each day with general review on the last morning. National dances will also be taught each day at all levels with a general review on the last morning. We will also be teaching theory in all levels every day in regular classes.
It is mandatory that each student arrive in top physical condition! Students must begin to increase their practice time in the months PRIOR to the start of School. It is imperative students be able to dance for 45-minutes for four times a day. By increasing strength and stamina before arriving at OSAS, injuries will be prevented.
