2019-2020 Denise’s Dance Academy Travel Team Tryouts

Our Travel Teams are a specifically selected group of dancers who will be required to travel out of town for one regional competition, attend three in town regional competitions and one out of town national’s competition. Travel team dancers are required to attend one leaps and turns class, one cardio and conditioning class and two hours of ballet weekly. Dancers will be placed into the various groups based off of the tryout sessions below, the past seasons’ commitments to the mandatory requirements, work ethic, and attendance. New dancers to our studio will be placed in these groups based off of their tryouts and there will be equal chances for new dancers to join our travel teams. Just because a dancer was previously a part of our travel teams, does not ensure repeat placement this next season. We are excited about a great new season! If you plan to audition for our travel teams, please go to DDA Registration to enroll in each of the styles you plan to audition for.  There is NO charge for this set of auditions.
