Additional information:

All students are welcome regardless of gender or prior dance experience.

Parents may not stay during either audition session to watch their child.

Parents/dancers may video the routine at the end of the first session.

Once the dancer has completed their audition on Thursday, they may contact a parent to be picked up.

Proper attire should be worn for both sessions to ensure the dancer has free range of movement: dance/athletic shorts, leggings, fitted tops, dance shoes (if dancer already has some). If dancer does not have dance shoes, bare feet or socks are acceptable. No jeans or baggy clothing. If hair is long, it should be pulled back away from the face.

If selected, practices will begin in June and continue throughout the school year. The team performs at football games, basketball games, and IHSDTA invitationals/competitions. The dance season concludes in late February/early March, depending on competition schedules.
