  • Students should RSVP for the time slot pertaining to their upcoming grade level in the fall

  • Please wear dance attire (leotard, tights, tank top, leggings, shorts - must be tight fitting so we can see the line of the body.  No sweatshirts or sweatpants.

  • Students should bring jazz shoes, and ballet shoes or lyrical shoes.  Those wishing to participate in the Tap Team should bring tap shoes.  If a student does not have dance shoes, socks are acceptable.  No street shoes are permitted. 

  • The audition will consist of technique across the floor, demonstrating skills such as leaps and turns, and learning a short piece of choreography to be performed in small groups.

  • If students have any specific skills such as tumbling, they will be asked to demonstrate

  • We are not looking for perfection, but for the ability to take corrections, knowledge of correct technique, and showing us that you are willing to work hard to achieve goals.  A positive attitude, strong commitment, and solid work ethic are equally as important as technical precision. 

Elite Team Requirements

After the auditions

We will contact you with your team placement via email.  Once fall session enrollment is open, you can enroll in that team and corresponding technique classes.  There is a 48-hour no communication policy after placements are sent out.   After this period, we are happy to discuss student placements, but our decisions are final and re-auditions are not allowed.  Students will be contacted to schedule team picture and measurement day over the summer!


Please read the team handbook carefully and make sure you can abide by all requirements.  If you cannot be fully committed for the entire season, or cannot regularly attend classes and rehearsals, please consider a non-competitive class!  Students who do not adhere to the handbook will be dismissed from the team.  For more info on our teams please visit our Dance Teams page!
