Performance Team 2015 Season: January-May

Does your child LOVE to cheer, dance and perform and is between ages 9-11?

Performance Team is great for athletes who don’t want the travel and price commitment of an all-star team, or athletes who want to master their performance skills to prepare for an all-star team. Whichever direction; it’s a great stepping stone toward the personal growth of your child.  Athletes are REQUIRED to try-out for performance team, if selected for the team; athletes are required and expected to attend every practice and performance.  Athletes must also be enrolled in a MTC technique class as well.

Practices are held every Sunday from 12-2 AND BEGIN 01/04/2015 and once the team has been selected there will be a parent meeting to go over rules and expectations, as well as pass out the performance calendar for the season!

Welcome Miss Nicole!!!

Nicole is elated to join the More Than Cheer family as their Office Manager! Expanding from a history in government private sector work to full-time seamstress and costumer, Nicole has embraced the world of whimsy and made it her life. With an extensive background in dance, theatre, cheerleading, film, and children’s entertainment, Nicole is thrilled to be able to apply her skills and passions to further the pursuits of the More Than Cheer Students and Team.

Beginning as a pointe ballerina, Nicole felt a fervor for performance arts and soon became a lettering Thespian in the Honorary Thespian Society. She found self-confidence and superlative teamwork skills while cheerleading with Brittany and Sema at Heritage High School, cheering as Captain of JV and a member of the Varsity squads.

After high school, Nicole became more involved in evolving and advancing her skill set with volunteer work and regularly serves as various Disney Princesses (Ariel, Snow White) and Superheroes (Batgirl, Wonder Woman) for Children’s National and Georgetown Hospitals in DC. Nicole greatly looks forward to helping the More Than Cheer family develop new programs that expand on the current curriculum and explore the true meaning of being a Princess or Superhero.
