Open Dance & Master Classes

OPEN DANCE CLASSES

There will be open dance classes offered for all girls auditioning for Varsity, JV or Junior High or participating in the placement process for our Youth and Youth Prep teams. These classes will be geared towards each age group and will work on dance technique, improving current skills and teaching new skills. Dance classes are mandatory (unless a school conflict exists – please notify coaches in advance) if you are planning to audition for the Varsity or JV teams. If you are interested in auditioning for either our Junior High team or participating on the Youth/Youth Prep teams, it is highly recommended that you attend the open dance classes for your age level.

Varsity & JV Dance Teams (9th thru 12th grades 2024/2025 school year)
     Mondays 5:30-7:30 at Seton in the MPR – Classes start March 18th
     Wednesdays 5:30-7:30 at Seton in the MPR – Classes start March 20th

Junior High Dance Team (6th thru 8th grades 2024/2025 school year)
     Thursdays 6:00-8:00 at Seton in the STUDIO/MPR – Classes start April 4th

Youth/Youth Prep Dance Teams (4th thru 6th grades 2024/2025 school year)
     Tuesdays 6:00-7:30 at Seton in the STUDIO/MPR – Classes start April 9th

NOTE: Since 6th graders for the 2024/2025 season are eligible for both Junior High and the Youth/Youth Prep teams they are able to attend any of the open dance classes for either of those levels. We encourage any 6th grade dancer, with prior dance experience, to participate in the Junior High classes/auditions so they are aware of how that process works for their 7th grade season when they must audition for Junior High. If they chose to audition for Junior High and are not chosen for that team as a 6th grader they will be placed on either our Youth or Youth Prep team based on their Junior High tryout and will need to confirm their participation on their assigned team to those individual team coaches. Dancers are not required to audition for Junior High as a 6th grader. Please review the above audition 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.

MASTER CLASSES
