Joining the Dance Team Interested dancers should please call the studio before the boot camp date below for details.
2020-21 Dance Team Boot Camp (by invitation only) Saturday, August 22, 2020
Joining the Team All dancers interested in being on the dance team are encouraged to express their interest to the studio director or team coaches so they may receive information about team membership. Dancers must first apply to be in the apprenticeship program where they may be evaluated by the team coaches.
Team Structure There will be one team with three levels: Apprentice, Performance (Recreational) and Competitive.
The Apprentice Program This program is designed to give dancers and their families a glimpse into what it is like to be part of the Attitudes Dance Team. It is designed for younger dancers (7+yrs old), dancers who do not meet the technical or age requirements, or those who are simply interested in what it takes to be a team member. Dancers are encouraged to express their interest to the studio director or team coaches so they may receive detailed information regarding the program.
The Performance (Recreational) Dancer Performance team members will enjoy performing at community events, senior centers/assisted living facilities, and various other events throughout the year (Sep-Jun) including going to at least one competition per season. Detailed information about the team is available upon request to studio families.
The Competitive Dancer Dancers who are interested in this track should have dance as a priority in their lives putting it before other extracurricular activities. They should be prepared to take more technique classes, rehearse more, assist at the studio when needed, participate in all fundraising events, and compete and perform throughout the year (Sep-Jun).
Letters of Placement Students will be notified via mail of their acceptance/placement on the team. Although every attempt will be made to place dancers who show interest, some dancers may not yet possess all the technical skills needed for intensive competitive dancing. In that case, recommendations will be made to strengthen the dancer's technique.
