  • Rehearsals: Tuesdays & Fridays
  • January 2, 2018 to May 22, 2018

  • AUDITIONS for Spring 2018 teams were held in November. Congratulations to our new team members!

Our formation teams are for those who are interested in an engaging performance opportunity. We are looking for teens that can be dedicated to achieving a high level of success as a team, and have the ambition to consistently improve. Dancers with all levels of experience, including beginners, are welcome to audition! We will learn exciting routines, tricks, and work hard together to synchronize formations. The teams will have several local performance opportunities, and travel to the Portland Open DanceSport Competition in May! Rehearsals are held twice a week, for 1.5 hours each. Team dancers are also encouraged to enroll in a class, but not required.

Spring 2018 team members have been selected. Our next team auditions for Fall 2018-Winter 2019 teams will be held in June 2018.
