Tryout Attire/Hair:

For days of tryouts, dancers must wear black tight fitting clothing that does not display school and/or dance team emblems or names. Wear shoes you can easily dance in, sneakers or jazz shoes. Preferably, tank top or sport bra, leggings/shorts, and jazz shoes. Shoes must be worn at all times. Points will be deducted from dancers' scores who do not follow the tryout attire guidelines. 

Hair needs to be pulled back into tight ponytail or bun - tied securely for each day of tryouts. Bobby pins and hairspray should be used to keep loose hairs away from your face. We encourage you to present yourself as clean and neat as possible. Points will be deducted from dancers' scores who do not follow the tryout hair guidelines.
