Team Criteria:


All individuals will be judged on technical ability, personality and performance.

Technical requirements include, but are not limited to:

  • Pirouettes - doubles required, triples are preferred
  • Faute turns
  • Axel turns
  • Toe touches
  • Hitch kicks
  • Switch leaps

    During the preliminary round of auditions, you will be asked to perform all technical requirements to the best of your ability. All individuals who make it through the first audition based on technical merit will then be asked to learn a short combination that will be performed later that day at the final audition.

    Any students who wish to audition must bring a completed physical form to the auditions. A copy of the physical required for freshmen and transfer students will suffice. Returning students may request a form at sjuhawkdancers@yahoo.com.
