Classes Offered At Accident Elementary

Brenda's Body Shop is excited to bring classes to the children living in the northern end of Garrett County.  We offer weekly classes at Accident Elementary School every Tuesday, September to May.   
Students in these classes will have many of the same performance opportunities as students attending BBS.  Amy Anderson is our lead instructor and has been teaching at BBS for the past 20 years.  She is most familiar to our students because she also teaches fifth grade at Accident.  Also teaming up with Amy are former students Sheri Hershman and Kenzi Smith.  Brenda also teaches and monitors classes each week.

Note: Classes at this location begin on September 10, 2019



*Prerequisite:  1st & 3rd  graders must have previous experience in a class offered by BBS to be placed in the older group.

[K-1, Grades 1-3, & Grade 3-6] Gymnastics is one of the best choices you can make for a young child.  Did you know that gymnastics develops 26 multiple intelligence factors in children? The benefits are tremendous.  It’s an “all body” sport that develops muscle memory, strength, flexibility, balance, coordination and much more. Students learn our gymnastics class format, physical conditioning, skill progressions and development       Our curriculum is action packed, time tested and effective.  Every warm up, drill or method has a specific goal.  Our instructors carefully breakdown new skills so students can practice safely.  Each student will learn from group and individual instruction.   Our experienced and trained instructors will demonstrate and spot students to enhance maximum success.  We remind parents that students progress on his/ her own time table.  Please do not compare your child’s ability or progress to other students.  Each child progresses due to several factors like, age, experience, body readiness and practice.  Keep in touch with your child’s feelings about the classes, are they having fun, being inspired by the instructors, enjoying their peers?   Though our classes are for students only we invite parents to communicate with us anytime about their child’s progress.

Jazz/Pom Pom

[Grades 1-3] Jazz is energetic and fun, consisting of unique moves, fancy footwork, big leaps and quick turns. Pom Pom (drill team) style dance promotes teamwork, awareness of spacing and formations.    Blending these two formats offers young students a beginning foundation in jazz technique that can later advance in complexity.  Pom poms add the fun and visual appeal to our dances along with promoting unison and showmanship.

[Grades 3-6]Jazz is one of the most popular dance classes around.  Jazz  is jumping, bouncing, high kicks and high energy.  Technique is the foundation for all dance movement.  Students will work on acquiring strong technical skills.  This class really encourages individual expression and enables dancers to focus on the stylistic and performance aspects of dance.  We use all types of music from pop, to hip hop, movie sound tracks and more.  We will explore traditional jazz, Broadway style and some basic lyrical jazz.  Our routines, music and costuming are all age appropriate.  This class will equip students to succeed in our advanced classes as they come of age.
