CLASSICAL AND MODERN DANCE PROGRAM
The Dance Division at CAA is not a competition-oriented trophy program, instead we offer genuine performance experiences. Our students learn proper technique, dance terminology, and understand that Dance is an art form and a mode of expression involving grace, poise, good posture, discipline, and musicality. Ballet provides the foundation for solid technique however we also offer instruction in Jazz and Tap dance styles. Classes are offered for the performing student as well as the recreational student who simply wishes to enjoy the movement of Dance and not worry about performing. We begin with children as young as three and welcome students of any adult age also.
For children age 7.5 through adults:
Fencing Classes at Collierville Arts Academy are part of the Martial Arts Division. Therefore, our fencing classes do not have a start/stop date and students may begin their training at any time and continue train all year long, if they wish. There is a Competition Season that runs parallel with the general academic school year: August through June. It culminates each year in the USFA Summer National Fencing Championship during the first two weeks of July. For more info on fencing, visit The Memphis Fencers!
For children age 6.5 through adults:
It's the closest thing to a video game or real edged-weapons combat that there is! SUPER FUN without the PAIN or DAMAGE. This is a Hero Training program using padded weapons.
For children age 4.5 through adults:
The Karate program is based mostly on Shotokan karate with a little TKD and Kung Fu added in at different levels, depending upon age group.
For children age 4.5 through adults:
Aikido at Collierville Arts Academy is simply called Collierville Aikido. Aikido is a Japanese martial art developed by Morihei Ueshiba in the aftermath of World War II as an alternative means of defense. Focusing on protection instead of destruction, Aikido practitioners redirect the energy of an attack, usually in the form of joint locks and throws, to neutralize a situation while protecting the integrity of the practitioner (called nage in class terminology) as well as that of the attacker (uke).
The Fitness Division at CAA encompasses a full range of fitness options for ANYONE looking to get in shape, sculpt muscle, tone up, and just lose a few pounds. From serious bodybuilders to athletes who need to cross-train and enhance their skills, the Fitness Division at CAA can handle it all - with the personal attention, practical guidance, and careful management of your fitness goals that you'll treasure.
