Performance Team

Join Gale's Studio of Dance Performance Team


While strongly maintaining that we are not a "Competition Studio", we do have a "Performance Team". This team gives students more opportunity to perform, entertain and showcase their talent. More importantly, the focus of the instructors during "Performance Team Classes" will be to build much needed confidence and experience when auditioning, trying out for cheerleading, school dance teams, plays, talent shows, Distinguished Young Women Program or even having the poise and composure to give a speech or interview for Mobile’s Azalea Trail Maids! All of our dance classes benefit students in the above endeavors but these classes are designed to focus on stage presence" and confidence! Suggested venues to entertain: Christmas Jubilee, Fundraisers, Churches, Pecan Festival, Christmas Parades, Senior Citizens Centers, Lady Jags Basketball games, etc.

The "Performance Team" is divided into the following age divisions and each group meets for a 1 hour class per week. Tuition for team classes is $35.00 per month (in addition to regular monthly tuition).

Junior Team (ages 10 – 13)

Meets Tuesdays 4:45 pm – 5:45 pm. Instructor: "Miss Danielle".

Senior Team (ages 14 – Up)

Meets on Mondays 5:45 pm – 6:45 pm. Instructor: "Miss Buffy"

Several routines will be choreographed and taught during Team Classes. Each group will learn Lyrical, Hip Hop, Jazz and/or Character style dance numbers as well as entire group production numbers that we can add to the team "repertoire".
