POM CLINIC :
What is pom dance?
Pom is a style of dance focusing on sharp, clean arm movements, formations, jumps and skills. Pom incorporates movements from other dance styles such as jazz and hip hop. Dancers hold poms and perform with high energy throughout the routine.
We think pom is a great style of dance for improving dancers’ motions …especially for those preparing for the collegiate level. And it’s always fun to watch and perform! We are excited about exploring this program this Summer in hopes of forming our very own OBCDA Pom Squad for Competition and Performance. Pom Dance would only require a 1.5-2 hour class one day per week for technique and rehearsal. Clinic dates followed by Parent Interest meetings will be announced soon.
OBCDA Hip Hop Crew –
We realize that not everyone has the time and finances to commit to being a competitive member of The FIRM Dance Company, but we don’t want the demanding time and financial commitment to keep interested dancers from experiencing competition. With our work within the school systems we have seen so many young people that have a gift for dance…especially hip hop. Therefore, we are exploring the possibility of forming an OBCDA Hip Hop Crew for boys and girls ages 10-18. Crew members would require only a 1.5-2 hour class one day a week with a very affordable monthly tuition. The Hip Hop Crew would travel with The FIRM Dance Company to our local competitions as well as participate in community events. An interest meeting along with auditions will be announced soon!!!
Children’s Vocal Performance Group
Our vision is a vocal performance group for young people ages 8 to 18 that ignites a love of music and encourages the full expression of each child’s potential for artistic and personal excellence through singing, dancing, and performing.
Young performers will be given the opportunity to develop their talents, collaborate with artists in the production and performance of live music and recorded music videos, and share their uplifting messages of hope and joy with their peers!
Every child is born with talents and passions and we realize it’s not always just dance. Many kids have a hidden love of singing and we want to encourage them to pursue their passions through creative expression and personal discovery. Look for a mini-show choir clinic followed by an interest meeting to be announced soon!!
Chance To Dance Class & Team
We are bringing our Chance To Dance program back but taking it one step further! We feel all kids should experience and get the chance to perform and compete. Therefore, we would like for our Chance To Dance members be a part of The FIRM Dance Company starting in the 2023-24 season. Once the plans are finalized, we will hold an interest meeting for parents. Spread the word!
As you can see, we are looking to implement many new programs into OBCDA for the 2023-2024 season. Some may happen and some may not but we are going to give each our BEST shot. We have qualified and passionate program leaders in order and we can’t wait for them to share their gifts!! Regardless of your financial and time commitment, we have something for all children to belong to. Finding a child’s passion early in life leads kids to be goal setting adults. Look for interests meetings to be scheduled on all of our new programs as well as The FIRM Dance Company. By being informed, you can make the decision on a team or program that is right for you and your performer!!!
