Our youth formation team is 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! During your experience on team, you will learn exciting routines, tricks, and work hard together to synchronize formations. The team will have fantastic local performance opportunities–in theaters, high schools, and festivals/fairs! Also the team will 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.
All team dancers will need to obtain proper dance attire and footwear for ballroom dancing. Dancers selected for the team at auditions must accept their team position within the week by returning a signed Team Contract and by registering for the team in our online system. At time of registration, $55 of the team costume fee will be collected (non-refundable; the remaining $55 is due with February tuition).

A good introduction to dancing on a formation team, this can also prepare dancers to audition for our full performance level team. No auditions required, simply sign up and come have a great time making new friends and learning some fun and easy routines! The team will also participate in several local performance opportunities to show off what you learn!
The Beginning Team will rehearse one day per week for 1.5 hours, and participate in about 3-4 local performances over the course of the 2018-19 season. Enrolling in a class is encouraged for team members, but not required.
