All competitive students must have a strong work ethic and maintain a positive attitude towards other students, teachers and competitors. The competition team requires commitment from both students and parents alike. Competitive team students take classes from September-June and attend 4 competitions a year with additional shows such as our competitive team showcase. We are inviting everyone interested in joining our team for the 2022/2023 year to fill out the online tryout form by Wednesday, June 14th, 2023.
All forms are to be filled out by a parent or guardian unless you are over the age of 18. Please submit one form per dancer. (This form is easiest filled out on a computer).
All requests will be taken into consideration when making the schedule. Scheduling will reflect the best interest of the majority of the team, studio space and instructor availability. Once offers are sent out a tentative schedule will be given. This schedule will have some changes if not all dances are accepted however, changes to the schedule requested by parents will cost $50 each to cover the time of the cost of Admin team’s time. So please only select the times on the tryout form that you are available to attend dance classes.
This online tryout form is due by Wednesday, June 14th, 2023. Please also submit a video of the dancer to firstname.lastname@example.org prior to June 14th.

Competitive Team Try-Outs General Information
Arrive with plenty of time to sign in, fill out the tryout form if not done so already online, and collect your number. There will be no formal warm-up, so please ensure that all dancers are properly stretched and ready to go to avoid injury. Only those students who have signed in and collected their numbers will be allowed to participate in the audition process.
Students must wear appropriate dance attire for the genre they are auditioning for. If you do not have proper footwear for specific styles, you may wear the dance shoes that you feel most comfortable in. Hair must be worn up and out of the dancer’s face. If you are unsure of the dress code, please visit our Class Description page.
Mini dancers will be asked to demonstrate flexibility and age-appropriate movements across the floor. Junior, Intermediate and Senior dancers will be taught a short combination and asked to perform it. This allows instructors to assess each dancer’s comfort level while performing as well as their ability to retain and execute a combination. Instructors will also be at assessing flexibility and skill level to place each dancer in the most appropriate routine.
Please bring a water bottle, all required proper dance attire and shoes, and a snack if there is a break between tryouts.
We are looking for enthusiastic students with positive attitudes who have stage presence, dance well with team members, and easily follow instructions for our competitive team.
