    • From
      COVID-19 is a respiratory illness caused by a novel virus that has been spreading worldwide. Community-acquired cases have now been confirmed in California. We are gaining more understanding of COVID-19’s epidemiology, clinical course, immunogenicity, and other factors as time progresses, and the situation is changing daily. CDPH is in the process of monitoring COVID-19, conducting testing with local and federal partners, and providing guidance and resources to prevent, detect and respond to the occurrence of COVID-19 cases in California. At this time, community transmission of COVID-19 has occurred in California. Educational institutions should prepare for possible impacts of COVID-19 and take precautions to prevent the spread of COVID-19, as well as other infectious diseases, including influenza and gastroenteritis.
    • The Ca SIP will not eliminate the disease it will slow the spread so medical teams can prepare and not be overwhelmed by an influx of patients.


  • Staff must wash hands or use hand sanitizer when they enter the building and in between classes
  • Staff must wash their hands or use hand sanitizer after touching their face or using the restroom.  
  • All teachers and staff must wear masks


What happens if a student who has returned back to class, a staff member, or an immediate family member of that population tests positive for Covid-19?  

We will follow reporting protocols set by the county health department and notify the studio population accordingly while maintaining HIPPA regulations.

NORCAL Theme Dance

The focus of this performance is audience entertainment. With no spoken word by the athlete, this routine tells the story of the selected theme or era. Through the selection of music, costuming and dance the audience is drawn into your theme. This routine should encompass and express one predominate theme and/or era. Theme dance incorporates novelty movements into elegant, athletic theatre capable of captivating audiences. This performance should additionally focus on athletic skills such as jumps, combo jumps, tricks, trick variations and/or illusions. Technical skills (i.e. pirouettes/ leaps) will be credited toward degree of difficulty. Dance style must emphasize uniformity, rhythm, creativity, and execution. Costuming is required to reflect the routine’s theme/era. Props are highly recommended, however not mandatory. See Youth General Dance Routine Guidelines for prop specifics.

hip hop dancers


A routine focusing on street style movements with an emphasis on variety, execution, creativity, body isolations/control, rhythm, uniformity and musical interpretation. Choreography should demonstrate various styles and elements of hip hop while incorporating athletic tricks, footwork, jumps, stalls, etc. When incorporating these skills it is very important to make sure proper technique is maintained. Improper execution of any trick, stall, etc. may negatively affect your score.
