2018-2019 Denise’s Dance Academy Invitational Team Tryouts
Our invitational teams are a specifically selected group of dancers who will be required to travel out of town for one regional competition, attend three in town regional competitions and one out of town national’s competition.
Invite team dancers are required to attend one leaps and turns class, one cardio and conditioning class and two hours of ballet weekly. Dancers will be placed into the 5 groups based off of the tryout sessions below, the past seasons commitments to the above requirements, work ethic, and attendance.
New dancers to our studio will be placed in these groups based off of their tryouts and there will be equal chances for new dancers to join our invitational teams. Just because a dancer was previously a part of our invitational teams in the past, does not ensure repeat placement this next season. We are excited about a great new season!
