Try-outs for the 2018-2019 Appalachian State Dance Team will be held March 24 and 25, 2018!
The App State Dance Team welcomes high school seniors, transfer students, App State students, and returning dance team members to try out!
Check out the video at the bottom of this page to learn more about what it means to be apart of the Dance Team at Appalachian State!
All high school seniors and transfer students must bring a letter of acceptance to tryouts, and plan to attend ASU in the fall.
All current ASU students must present their student ID at registration.
If you are interested in tryouts but cannot be there that weekend you may send in a video tryout. Contact Holly Moore at firstname.lastname@example.org for the criteria for a video tryout. Videos are due by March 12th at 11:55 pm.
General skills expected at try-outs but not limited to
front and side leaps, calypsos, leg spins, pirouettes, kicks, intermediate to advance fouette turn combinations, illusions, knowledge of pom technique, hiphop technique and jazz technique.
Being a member of the team is a privilege, with that in mind, the team must come before any other ASU club. Once accepted onto the team, every member must read and sign a team constitution that has been created by the team members themselves. Attendance, appearance, conduct, and consequences for rule infractions are elements that are included in the constitution, and expected by members.
The App State Dance Team is thrilled and excited about your interest in the team. Please come to try-outs to see what we're all about. We guarantee a professional but casual atmosphere. We do everything we can to make the App State Dance Team try-outs fun, worry-free, and a great learning experience! Hope to see you there!
