Dance Team Tryouts
January 10, 2018
Your child has shown an interest in the 2019-2020 Germantown Middle Dance Team. Being a member of the dance team requires a serious commitment of time and money by both parent and child. In order to try out for a position on the dance team, a student must have a grade point average of a C. Also, each girl must attend a clinic on Feb. 13th and 14th after school then actual tryout day, February 15th. The clinic will be held in our school gym from 3:30-5:30p.m. Parents must be able to pick up their child promptly at 5:30 by the gym. There will be a $10.00 nonrefundable fee for each girl trying out. This fee is to help cover the cost of the judges. This is due in cash when the application is due. Each girl must have a current physical as well. This must be turned in by February 3rd.
For the clinic, girls should wear comfortable shorts, T-shirt, and gym shoes. At the clinic, the girls will learn basic dance team skills and a choreographed routine to be performed for the tryout. The actual tryout will be Friday, February 15th from approximately 3:30 to 6:00 in the school gym. For the tryout, girls should again wear the appropriate attire; however for this occasion, a white t-shirt (sports bra) and black shorts are suggested. We will post the results of the tryouts on the dance team website under the “electives” tab of the GMS website that Friday night.
Selection of members for the dance team will be based on teacher evaluations and independent judges’ scoring on the performance of the tryout dance. The girls selected for the 2019-2020 Germantown Middle Dance Team will need to be prepared to spend approximately $600.00 for summer camp and uniforms. The first payment of $200.00 will be due March 1stt. There will also be payments due in April and May. Attending summer camp is mandatory. Camp dates will be set soon. We will meet from 8:30-4:30 Monday-Thursday. (Thursday usually ends around 2:00.)
If you have any questions, please feel free to contact me at the school. I look forward to working with your daughter.
