Winter Competitive Team

2019-2020 Dance Program

The 2019-2020 Spring tryouts are concluded! We are excited to have 43 talented dancers in our dance program! 

Missed the fall tryouts and want to be on the fall team? Once the 2019-2020 school year starts dancers interested in the fall dance club must contact the Fall Coaching staff dancers have until Sept 5, 2019 to join. However, you will not be guaranteed to perform right away as dancers have been working on routines since August. Plus you will need to work out team apparel that was ordered in April. 

Still want to join the winter competition jazz and kick teams? Come to our tryout informational meeting Oct 1st at 6:30PM in room 2045A at the HS. Final winter tryouts and to make the varsity and jv team placements will be Oct 21st 3:30PM to 5:30PM. New dancers joining the winter team must have bio forms, permission slips, contract, and booster form for the Oct 21st tryouts. Please note all winter dancers need to pay the school $160.00 AD fee and have an updated physical on file with the HS AD office. This needs to be accomplished by Oct 25.
