All are welcome to join this free try out flag twirling class! SOE’s flag classes are for fitness, developing leadership skills, confidence, creative worship and fun! Coordination, team spirit, dance and performance skills emerge as flag students are taught to twirl flags and strengthen their muscles. SOE’s flag classes are for everyone, usually ages 10 and up. Some younger, special needs and older youth including adults are encouraged to lift the banners and enjoy this new found uplifting skill!
Students may choose to advance from Intro Flags to the beginner, intermediate, advanced 1 & 2 levels, and join the SOE FLAG COMPANY a unformed team which has performed at more than 200 public events to audiences as large as 40,000 at the Rogers Center, Toronto, and community, church and presentations. All students at every level will perform at the seasonal SOE shows at the Creativity Training Centre.
Beginner to Advanced levels have positive Biblical, faith-based instruction in interpretive movements and names with meanings from scripture. Such as Cherubim, Victory, Wing, Rod, and Seraphim. The history of flags and its purposes are studied also. Students learn to create and draw their own choreography, and they develop excellence in attitude and flag twirling.
The medal Flag Twirler is earned upon successful completion of the 12-week beginner course.
Assessment, Awards, Certification and promotion to Intermediate Level may be worked on at the student own pace and when they are ready assessment appointments are offered several times a year.
