Spring Auditions

Want to be a member of the 2011-2012 Umass Dance Team? Here’s your chance!

We are holding spring auditions for the 2011-2012 season:

When: Sunday, May 1st 2011 @ 2pm

Where: Curry Hicks Cage (Click here for a detailed map of campus)

During auditions you will have to show us a triple pirouette, fouettes, turns in second, side leap, toe touch, and a switch leap. We would also love to see any other advance skills that you may have such as a leg extension, a switch strattle, quarter fouettes, any gymnastic skills, etc. Keep in mind, the more advanced skills we see, the better. We will also be teaching you two combinations, therefore you do not need to come prepared with your own routine. Although we do have additional tryouts in the fall, we strongly encourage you to audition in the spring. The reason for this is that if you do not make it this time around you have a second chance to be apart of the 2011-2012 season team!

Being a member of this team requires hard work and commitment but it all pays off when we perform at UMass games and even more so when we travel to Daytona, Florida for NDA Nationals in Spring!

Check out our Frequently Asked Questions webpage for details about auditions.
