Members of the Spirit Team will learn physical fitness by focusing on the proper positioning and execution of dances, stunts, jumps, and cheer motions while maintaining a high performance value. Each practice contains a 15-30 minute warm-up including conditioning techniques used in the P.E. curriculum. Dance styles such as jazz, hip hop, musical theater, and others are incorporated to give a versatile dance educational experience such as that of the Dance Performance course which develops coordination and allows for a quicker learning potential. In congruence with all physical activities of this course, safety and injury prevention techniques are taught to maintain a healthy and fit body.
Students earn 2.5 credits per semester, 5 credits for the year. It takes TWO years of Spirit Team to fulfill the 10 P.E. required credits for graduation.
To receive P.E. credit members of the Spirit Team must participate in all required practices and performances/activity as outlined in the teams contract.
