NOTE: Since 6th graders for the 2023/2024 season are eligible for both the Junior High team and Youth/Youth Prep program they have the choice of which team(s) they would like to participate in the tryout/placement process for. If they chose to audition for Junior High and do not make the team as a 6th grader they are more than welcome to come back and participate in Youth/Youth Prep placements. They are not required to audition for Junior High as a 6th grader. Please review the below open dance class info. and handbook for explanation of the differences between our Junior High team and Youth/Youth Prep program when making the decision on what is best for your dancer.
