Class Descriptions

 

Make Your Debut (Offered this session)

 

The Debut Title is an optional title that a puppy and handler team, or dog and handler team, is eligible to earn before completing the Overture Division Title.  This is a “training in progress” level title and it is perfect for puppies, or adult dogs who are new to training.

 

Come and join us as we explore the new Debut Division in Poised for Success Freestyle.  It is a great class for bonding and building a training relationship with your dog.

In this class, we will cover some of the options that can be completed for each of the four Debut Division Legs - Focus and Training, Building Body Awareness, Props, and Music and Play.

 

We will also work together to create submission-ready video clips, and we will discuss how to put the clips together in a YouTube Playlist for submission.

 

The tuition for this class covers one Debut Division entry, which teams can prepare as part of the class.

 

Class material will be presented in both written and video format. Students will receive feedback for clips of training and/or performance that are shared throughout the class.

Dance in the Dynamic Division (To be offered in the future)

 

If you and your dog have earned the Harmony Division Title, you are ready to create and film performances!

In the Poised for Success Freestyle Titling Program, performances are created for different categories.  Each category is a type of performance.

In this class, we will go through an overview of the different categories, and you and your dog will work toward creating one very short performance for six different categories.

You will also learn about the two titling tracks that you can following in the performance divisions – Silver Screen or Theater.

Dynamic Division is the place where you and your dog can let your creativity shine and begin creating your own unique art together.
