GROUP LIFT PROGRAM
Although the Group Lift Teams do not meet as often, practices are longer periods of time so as to better hone the skills of lifts, drops, and non ballroom dancing. There is no technique class that is attached to this team and there is no requirements to be on an additional team/tech if involved in a Group Lift Team. HOWEVER, due to safety issues, attendance on this team needs to be of the highest priority. Unexcused absences will result in being removed from this team. In addition, a weekly health and fitness form must be turned into the director as well as periodic skill assessments to ensure that dancers are progressing in the routines and conditioning consistently out of class. Because of the nature of the Group Lift Program, two coaches are always present to ensure the safety of the dancers. Cost of this team reflects the extensive coaching required on both a local and professional training level as well as the more expensive and specially made costumes.
