The purpose of Footwork Mini Ensemble is to promote the art of dance, dance performance, and to further the dance education of its members. It will seek to advance the art form of dance and performance by addressing the needs, concerns, and interests of the dance members. This group gives members the opportunity to experience new aspects of the art of dance (through the traditional means of dance) while incorporating aspects of Dance Team. Through promoting this art form, the members will grow in performance skills, individual talent as a dancer, and overall dance education.




There will be two sections to the season.

The first half (September through December) will be primarily on performance skills through jazz, ballet, hip-hop, and contemporary. At the end of the 1st half (end of December), members of MiniEnsemble will perform at Holiday Magic at the Brookfield Zoo. Leading up to their performance, members will have once a month rehearsals (September - December) where they will learn and work on their routines.


The second half (January through June) will be spent on learning Pom technique, skills, and a Poms routine. Members will continue to work on jazz, hip-hop, and contemporary technique as Poms incorporates all of those styles. This is a non-competitive Team. Members will perform at the Jo’s Follies in June 2019 showcasing their different Dance Team styles.
