Auditions for Competitive Troupe (Jazz-based)
DDH Dance Troupe, What Is It?
DDH Dance Troupe is a jazz based performance team that was developed for dancers who desire to perform more often and compete in dance competitions. Members of our Dance Troupe also perform at local events and have the opportunity to attend professional dance workshops to expand their technique and style. Troupe classes are by audition only. Junior Level is for ages 9-13.5 and Senior is for ages 14-19 or by teacher recommendation / approval by Dee Dee. Dancers turning 14 by September 1st for the subsequent dance season will need to try-out in Senior Level.
We have six performing dance troupes:
There is only room for a limited amount of dancers in each Troupe. An alternate will be picked in each Troupe level in the event that someone drops-out. The try-out is a great learning experience for all dancers, even if they may not be selected for this years Troupe!
In the past, we have always required dancers to tryout every dance season; even if you were on troupe the previous season. However, going into this 2020 season, we have decided to allow all dancers that were on Troupe/Crew this past season to automatically remain on their levels for this 2020 season. If you would like to move up or be considered for another level of Troupe/Crew we are offering limited times to give our dancers the opportunity to try-out for a different level. Please note, auditioning does not guarantee you will be moved up. This year’s Troupe/Crew auditions are geared towards those who are at the age and are eligible for a Senior level spot or new students with previous dance experience. We are limiting the number of dancers in one room during try-outs to provide a safer environment for our dancers and staff. Spots will be limited for each time slot. For Storm Competition Auditions (Advanced/Senior Level), please contact DeeDee directly to arrange an audition.
Amazing job to everyone who auditioned this year for our competitive TROUPE team. So proud of everyone and excited for next year’s season! (list is in no specific order)
