Our studio located at 9 Academy Street, Chelmsford MA, is open for lessons Mondays, Wednesdays, and Thursdays.
Weekly Class (mandatory) Students will meet for 45 minutes each week to work on skills and learn at least two routines over the course of the year. Students will be grouped by age and ability levels according to the judgment of the coach. When the coach feels that the team is ready, they will compete in two competitions per year (MA & NH States). Students are invited to march in parades with the Twirl Team. All classes will perform at our recital in June.
