NOTE: Since 6th graders for the 2024/2025 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 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 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.

QUESTIONS REGARDING TRYOUTS/SIGN-UPS?

Should you have any questions regarding auditions/sign-ups feel free to contact our staff. Just click on ‘Contact’ and then select ‘tryout information’. Your email will be responded to shortly!

We will also have an informational parent/dancer meeting on Wednesday, March 13th at 6:30pm in Seton’s Halo Café. We will discuss all aspects of Seton’s Dance Program and our staff will be available for questions at that time. We will have tentative budget numbers as well for the new season. This meeting is NOT mandatory for your daughter to audition or participate, dancers are however welcome to attend with their parents.

NOTE: Prospective Twinkle parents are welcome to attend as well but this meeting is geared towards our competition teams.

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)

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

These classes are in addition to the Open Dance Classes being offered above and are highly recommended for any dancer wishing to be a part of our program in the 2024/2025 season. Should a Master Class be scheduled for the day of an Open Dance Class the Master Class schedule below will override the above Open Dance Class schedule above.

Our returning Junior High dancers may attend the Advanced classes also if they would like the extra push as we enter the new season.

Twinkle Dance Classes

Registration for the Twinkle classes for the 2024/2025 season will open on Saturday, April 6th at 10:00 AM for all new dancers. We will have priority registration for our returning dancers starting on Wednesday, March 27th at 10:00 AM and ending Friday, March 29th at 2:00 PM to give us time to figure out how many additional dancers we can take during the open registration period. Any returning dancer who would like to be guaranteed a spot for the new season must register during this priority registration period as space will be extremely limited once it is opened to new dancers. Our classes fill very fast so please register ASAP once you are able to do so. Again, this season there will be a non-refundable registration fee of $35 that will go directly to Seton Athletics. Your dancers’ registration will not be complete if this fee is not paid during the online registration process.

This season we will do our best to keep the Monday, Tuesday and Wednesday 5:00-6:00 classes at Seton consisting of 1st and 2nd graders for the 2024/2025 school year and the Monday 6:15-7:45 class at Pilgrim Preschool (4418 Bridgetown Road, Cincinnati, OH 45211) for 3rd graders only. This 3rd grade class is extended so we can better prepare these dancers for our youth prep team should they choose to continue in our program. We will communicate any changes in the class schedule and/or location of class with the parents of the registered dancers as soon as possible once registration is closed and everything is confirmed.

The cost for the season is $300 per 1st and 2nd grade dancer and may be paid all upfront or split into 2 payments of $150 each due in August & October. The cost for the season is $350 per 3rd grade dancer and may be paid all upfront or split into 2 payments of $175 each due in August & October. This cost includes instruction, facilities (3rd grade class is higher due to Pilgrim rental costs), competition registration fees, Twinkle dance t-shirt, costume & 1 pair of tights. Dancers will be required to have tan slip on jazz shoes for all practices, competitions & performances. We will be placing an order for jazz shoes for anyone who may be interested in July. Cost will be approx. $40 for the same shoe our Youth & Youth Prep dancers wear. You are free to purchase jazz shoes on your own assuming they meet the requirements above.

Classes will begin the week of August 19, 2024.

SHINE Class is held on Monday nights, 5:00-6:00 in the Studio at Seton HS (1st & 2nd graders)
GLIMMER Class is held on Monday nights, 6:15-7:45 at Pilgrim Preschool (3rd graders)
SPARKLE Class is held on Tuesday nights, 5:00-6:00 in the Studio at Seton HS (1st & 2nd graders)
GLITTER Class is held on Wednesday nights, 5:00-6:00 in the Studio at Seton HS (1st & 2nd graders)

NOTE: We anticipate classes to be split up per the above but will adjust as necessary based on actual registrations by grade. We do want to have an all 1st grade class again this season but are not yet sure which night that will be on.
