Continued practice can lead to successfully auditioning for high school dance or drill teams.

ATTIRE: Please wear fitted clothing such as a leotard or dance/athletic wear and closed-toe sneakers or dance shoes. No jewelry other than stud earrings – no rings, necklaces, or bracelets as these will impede twirling. Hair should be pulled back in a bun or ponytail.
