Team Placement Information 2018

For those interested in participating on a dance team, each May we evaluate our dancers in order to best place them in team classes for the coming year. Before the auditions we offer two informative meetings for both dancers and parents to learn about the requirements involved with each group and ask any questions they may have about the studio, class policies, etc.  Listed below are the dates and times for these orientation meetings as well as the class auditions. The cost to audition is $30.00.

  • Dress for all auditions and evaluations is a plain solid leotard with pink tights and ballet shoes, and jazz shoes for the appropriate class. Hair must be pulled back into a bun. The Wardrobe will not be open on audition days.
  • ALL dancers must have a parent consent form signed by a legal guardian in order to audition.
  • All audition results will be emailed on Wednesday, May 23. Class placement lists will be posted on our website (thedanceclub.com) on the evening of Thursday, May 24.
  • New team registration and orientation meetings will be held June 12 & 14. Parent attendance at the orientation meetings is required. Summer classes begin June 18.
