While being a member of a dance team is a fun and educational experience, belonging to a performing and competitive dance team is a serious responsibility. Only dancers who are confident they can meet this responsibility and uphold their commitment should apply to audition. Parents or legal guardians will be required to sign an Agreement for time and financial responsibility. The student and parent or legal guardian should have a discussion before submitting the Team Agreement to ensure that they are ready and prepared for this commitment.
Students who are invited to join the Team will receive a formal invitation and sign their Agreement. Students who are not selected to join this year will receive recommendations for additional training to help them achieve their goal for the following year. There will be a limited number of apprenticeships for each level. Apprentices will have the same time and financial responsibility as team members so they are available to take the place of a member who becomes ill or injured and cannot perform. There will be at least two opportunities for apprentices to perform during the year, in addition to any stand-in performance.
