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 four dance teams: Senior Hip Hop Team, Junior Hip Hop Team and Acro Team. Team members are chosen at our annual fall try-outs in September and are open to dancers in the specified grades below. 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 twice a week year-round all while perfecting their dance steps, skills and tricks. 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!

Acro Team Try-Outs: Monday, September 9th 5:45-7:00 PM

Hip Hop Team Try-Outs: Thursday, September 12th 6:30-8:00 PM
