The first day of try-outs will consist of technical jazz progressions across the floor and learning a 1 minute routine: (4 counts of 8 of jazz, 4 counts of 8 of hip hop, 4 counts of 8 of your own choreography). The first cut will be made at the end of day 1. If you make the first cut you will be asked to come to the second day of tryouts.

During the second day of try-outs you will perform your 1 minute routine in groups of two or three in front of judges. Judges are looking at your overall performance and knowledge of the routine. The final dance team roster will be emailed after our second day of try-outs.

Please wear appropriate clothing and dance shoes or tennis shoes. Dance Team Try-outs are open to all future Woodside students as well as current Woodside students. You must be entering 9th, 10th, 11th, or 12th grade the following year. Current dance team members must re-audition every year.

Help us Raise FundsTop of Page

DONATIONS- GoFundMe.com

The Woodside Dance Team has just teamed up with GoFundMe.com in order to raise money for our program at Woodside High School. Because we are a self funded team it makes it nearly impossible to raise enough money to cover dance camp and competition costumes/fees. We work extremely hard throughout our year-round season improving our strength, technique and flexibility, as well as taking classes at private studios. All donations small and large are graciously recognized and help carry on the legacy of the Woodside Dance Team. To make a donation visit our GoFundMe site (link below).
