Fall 2012 Auditions!

The UMass Dance Team is back from camp at Boston University with a GOLD bid to Nationals and we are looking for some new dancers to be a part of this team! If you missed auditions in the spring, this is your last chance to join this dedicated and hard working team this year! We hope to see you all there!

When: Tuesday September 11th @ 7pm (Callbacks will be Wednesday September 12th)

Where: Curry Hicks Cage

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!

It does cost $10 to audition. This money helps us a lot during the year so we do not have to ask the school for as much.

If you have any other questions you can email our financial captain, Lauren McNally at
