Thornton Dance Teams
The Thornton Dance Teams are groups of young girls and boys dedicated to learning all styles of dance. They enjoy entertaining the community and bringing smiles to peoples faces. The teams are made up of six individual dance groups. The Divas, Diamonds, Dynamites, Dazzlers, Darlings, and Dreamers. Their ages range from 4-17, and are brought together by some amazing dance instructors, Kendra, Renee, Sara, MaKayla, Marissa and Rachel. They work hard with the girls and boys to teach them not only the skills of dance, but how to make a difference in the community along with showing integrity and respect to all.
Our mission is to provide affordable, performance based dance teams for the youth in the surrounding communities with at least one competition or convention opportunity each year.
We strive to:
- Create an environment where dancers can build confidence, coordination, creativity, grace, musicality, rhythm, and an overall appreciation of dance.
- Foster community spirit through dance performance and teamwork.
- Provide quality dance instruction in a recreational setting
Dancers will advance within their team by learning new and challenging dance techniques from year to year. Our philosophy is to create cohesiveness and unity by keeping dancers together for as long as possible. Movement between teams may be limited. This strategy encourages teamwork and produces better performance qualities within the dance teams.
