About the Winchester Star Catchers Dance Program
The Winchester Star Catchers Dance Program began as one hip-hop class with five students in 1999. In 2002, with more dancers enrolled, the youth decided they wanted to perform, and they chose the Star Catchers name.
Since then, the program has grown to include five levels of hip hop classes as well as five levels of ballet, two levels of contemporary and a jazz class. Students in the program range from ages 3 to young adult, depending on the age restrictions of the class.
As the dancers perfected their skills, their interests overflowed to include more dance genres. Shows such as “So You Think You Can Dance” opened their eyes to other avenues, and they turned to Winchester Cultural Center and Star Catchers to meet their needs. Due to demand, a contemporary dance class for beginning and intermediate dancers was added to the schedule in 2008. Ballet for ages 3 to 17 was added to the roster in 2011, and a jazz class for ages 11 to 17 was added in 2013.
In 2007, the Winchester Star Catchers celebrated its fifth anniversary by participating in Disney’s Magic Music Days in Southern California. Since then, the team has performed at Disneyland in 2011 and Disney California Adventures in 2015 as well as participated in Disney’s dance and master classes. Locally, the dancers have performed in the Helldorado Parade as well as multiple community events around the Las Vegas Valley, including various Winchester Cultural Center and Clark County events throughout the year. All dance classes in the program run on 12-week sessions in the spring (beginning in January), summer (beginning in June) and fall (beginning in September) and hosts three annual recitals and one ballet showcase in the spring.
