  • Dance Team Try-Out Information

    Register for tryouts in your age group. The program numbers are listed below. There will be a $7 non-refundable tryout fee. Dancers may be moved up or down based on age averages and skill of the dancer (i.e. if your dancer is 9 years old, tryout with the juniors, but if selected, may dance with the minis).

    Tryouts will be held at the Recreation Administration Center. Please show up for your age level only. Dance and Poms tryouts will be at the same time in 2 different rooms.

    Dance tryouts will consist of 15 minutes of Jazz and 15 minutes of hip hop. The instructor will determine, based on skills, which age level the dancers will perform at and which style they will perform. If your dancer refuses to dance a certain style, competition may not be suited for that child.

    There are no makeups for tryouts. You will be contacted via email within 1 week about individual results.
