Fall Auditions!

Want to be apart of the 2009-2010 UMass Dance Team? If you missed the spring auditions, don’t worry. Here’s your final chance!


When: Wednesday September 16th @ 7pm (Callbacks will be Thursday September 17th)

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 a short routine, therefore you do not need to come prepared with a solo.

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.

If you have any other questions you can email our captain, Kelly Pinola: kpinola@student.umass.edu


This upcoming Sunday (September 13th) we will be holding a workshop. Not sure if you’re 100% interested in auditioning? For only a small price of $10, here is your chance to get a feel for what we do exactly. This is also a great opportunity to help prepare for auditions and get to know the UMass Dance Team ladies!
