Bay Valley Academy 2020-2021 Pre Team Fun Meet and Mini Dance Competition Interest
Hi! Although we are on a pause with our regular schedule, that is not stopping us from continuing to plan the remainder of our season. Included in this form is Pre Team Fun Meet and Mini Dance Competition information. We think that your child is ready to participate and begin competing, and encourage you to consider the opportunity.

At Bay Valley Academy, although we compete in both dance and gymnastics, that does not mean that all of our athlete do indeed participate in both forms of competition. Neither dance or gymnastics is valued or encouraged over the other. We are passionate about it all and always just want to do what is best for each of our athletes and instill the confidence, passion, work ethic, and dedication that is necessary in athletics and life. About 1/4 of our competitive athletes participate in both dance and gymnastics. Often times, when starting out in competition, parents choose to have their child participate in both, to see which is the best fit. But, again, that is up to each family's schedule and preference.

All of our competitive athletes participate in dance technique class, and at this age, all of our competitive dancers also take gymnastics classes. To participate in Fun Meet gymnastics, athletes attend their 2 weekday practices and Saturday. To participate in dance competition, athletes attend their 1 or 2 weekday practices. Occasionally, we do have dance rehearsals on Saturdays.

Both of our competitive dance and gymnastics Teams have booster clubs that help with fundraising and pay for competition and coaches expenses. These are separate entities from each other and the business itself.

Typically, our competition schedule is already set and have started registering for competitions. That schedule, during a normal year, comes out in September. This season, we will be having in house gymnastics competitions and attend 1 or 2 other small competitions in Michigan. Mini dancers will attend 2 dance competitions. As with everything, our competition schedule is tentative and we are asking everyone to be patient and understanding of the alterations that have to be made to the schedule per state and local orders.

Mini competitive dancers will compete an Acro Jazz dance and a Tap dance. These are taught during regular class time and occasionally will rehearse on Saturday's. These dances are in addition to the routines that the athletes learn for the Recital. Fun Meet gymnasts compete a routine on each of the 4 events.
