• Double or triple pirouette
• Fouette sequence of your choice

We would prefer to see all potential team members in person, but if the tryout date interferes with prior commitments, we do allow a video tryout. Contact Coach Kaeleigh Ballentine for all the necessary elements to be included in the video, as well as a deadline.
1. All practices are mandatory. Being on the team is a full-time commitment.
2. For the day of tryouts, we ask that everyone bring their own dance shoes and comfortable dance attire. We strongly suggest a sports bra/top and dance shorts. We also expect everyone to look game-day ready (make-up, hair done nicely, etc.)
3. I am looking for and expect good attitudes and team morale.
