What are performance teams?
Performance teams are for students who want to experience a dance team environment without traveling to competitions.
Auditions will be held July 27th 2020 at Inspire Dance Company from 10:30-11:00. If a dancer can not make auditions in person they can send in a video audition. Studio auditions for the Mini Pink team are not required but they are welcome to come in and experience the audition process.
By auditioning for a performance team you must agree to the following:
1. You are committed to a team. The more classes a team member misses, the harder it is for the group to practice.
2. You will have FUN! We will work hard during classes but in a fun atmosphere. Leave all grumpy faces outside and be ready to dance, have fun, and smile!
3. As a team member you are required to purchase the performance team attire. This includes the uniform, and shoes (tan jazz shoes for Pink and Purple teams, and black jazz shoes for the Poms team). These will be worn for all practices and any performances.
4. We will try to schedule performance opportunities during the team rehearsal time when possible, but this will not always be the case. For example, there are local events that are set by other organizations such as parades and festivals.
5. You will be a good representative for Inspire Dance Company. Be kind to others at all times. This also means you give permission for photos and videos of the team members to be used for any advertising, online social media, flyers, and more.
6. All members must be enrolled at Inspire Dance Company.
If you are interested in trying out for a performance team you can register for auditions on our website at inspiredancecogj.com.
Please contact Cindy at firstname.lastname@example.org with your dancers name, age, and if you are auditioning for the Pink, Purple, or Poms team. Please include if you will be attending the studio audition or if you will be sending in a clip of your dancer. You must be enrolled at Inspire Dance Company before you audition for the performance team. Anyone not enrolled at Inspire will not be able to audition.
