/CRU

Competitive Rhythm Unit (CRU).

Members of CRU embody the essence and vision of Over The Top Academy of Dance. Ages, 5 to 18, they and their parents are committed to many technique classes as well as hours of competition rehearsals to be prepared for performances. Their dedication to working hard and achieving dance excellence makes us very proud! Last year CRU won several competitions and high ranking titles. So far this year the girls danced at a Griffins game! And will be competing throughout Michigan and the greater Grand Rapids Area.

 

How Do I Get into CRU at Over The Top?

CRU is invitation only. There are no auditions, except working hard in technique classes as well as taking any open workshops or summer classes that you are able to participate in. Only a few spots open each year.
