hayden dance teams

Dance team is for the more serious and advanced dancers who would like to challenge themselves and have the opportunity to compete at local dance competitions in the spring, they also take part in the annual spring dance recital. We currently have three dance teams Senior HipHop Team, Junior HipHop Team and Acro Team. Team members are chosen are our annual fall try-outs in September and are open to dancers grades K & up. Teams are not selected based on age but rather by what level a dancer is at and what individuals we feel would work well together to make a great team. Each team learns 1 dance routine to compete at competition. They work on their routine year-round all while perfecting their dance steps, skills and tricks. Dancers practice two hours per week. It takes hard-work and dedication to be a part of team but at the same time it's also very gratifying and lots of fun!
