As the year gets closer and closer towards the end, new dancers show their new and improved skills  at tryouts for the following year.

A total of 82 students showed up at the dance meeting that occurs before tryouts. Dance Instructor Alison Redding is in charge of all three teams: Cavalier Pep Squad, JV Dazzlers, and Varsity Patriots.

In January and February, workshops there are workshops and clinics for the new groups, and some are already in another dance class.

The most important things you need to remember in trying out for the more competition teams are:

  • Dedication
  • Commitment
  • One team, one family

“There isn’t a set number of how many can make either team,” Redding said.  “The teams consist of all of those that meet a standard.”

“I want as many kids that can handle the commitment, want to be a role model and can perform the needed skills on each team.  I like the look of the larger size teams but I don’t think sacrificing skill or commitment is worth it just for numbers,” says Redding.

Dazzler tryouts are March 6.
