*Your dancer may be asked to come an additional time, to audition with another age group. AUDITIONS ARE CLOSED TO THE PUBLIC. ONLY DANCERS AND JUDGES ARE TO BE IN STUDIO #1 AFTER REGISTRATION.
Warm-ups, stretches, across the floor technique, then we’ll teach a short combination and will have dancers perform it in groups of 4. We’re looking for strength and flexibility, strong dance technique in leg lifts, turns, leaps and in the demonstration of the choreography. SHOWMANSHIP is extremely important---SMILE!!!
PLEASE REMEMBER that you are auditioning for a performance group. Therefore, we expect a certain skill level for each age group. As with any audition we will only be accepting a certain amount of dancers. All applicants should use this audition as an opportunity to grow as a dancer.
Was created to provide younger, talented dancers with more performing experience, in primarily local venues such as ball games, retirement centers, Christmas Festivals, shopping centers and parades. They will compete at ONE local dance competition.
JR. & SR. TEAMS
Our older performance TEAMS are for dancers who “live, eat, drink and breathe” dance; who hold dance as their most important extra-curricular activity. If you are a dancer who is involved in sports or cheerleading (and/or many other activities) then our Performance TEAMS are not for you. It would be better for you to be in a regular dance class where you could enjoy performing without the commitment that a performance team requires.
*You can look forward to any of the following: Labor Day and Spud Day Parade, Festival of Trees, Retirement Centers, High School Boys’ and Girls’ half-time performances and other local events. They will compete at ONE local dance competition.
There will be a MANDATORY parent meeting for parents of our performance TEAM dancers (at least one parent per dancer) WEDNESDAY May 22nd, any time between 3:00-5:30pm in the studio. Parents will need to bring their check books.
TEAM dancers will meet once a week as a team. IN ADDITION: TEAM members are required to take and perform with an additional ballet/jazz class, ballet or technique class. Members will start technique and TEAM classes in August. Regular classes will start Sept. 4th.
