the WCU Dance Team

Cullowhee, N.C. - Auditions for the 2011-12 WCU Dance Team will be held on-campus beginning Friday, April 8 through Saturday, April 9, and will set the roster for the 2011-12 football or basketball squads.

The tryout - which is open to any incoming Western Carolina student or current WCU students in good academic standing - begins with a three-hour session on April 8 from 6:00 pm - 9:00 pm, and will continue on Saturday, April 9 from 9:00 am until 2:00 pm. Both days are required.

The auditions include two routines; one pom and one hip hop/technique. The routines will be taught on Friday night prior to the judged portion on Saturday. The technique portion of the tryout includes a variety of jazz/technical skills including, but not limited to, single and double turns, fuetes, leaps, axels and kicks.

Anyone who is unable to attend the tryout dates may submit a video tryout. Videos must be recieved by Friday, April 8th at 5:00 pm. Please click here for a PDF of the video tryout requirements. Please note that video tryouts will be judged slightly harder due to the ability to redo skills and more flexibility in the content of the routines.
