**We have officially set our dates for our 2017/2018 Performance Team and Special Choreography tryouts! If you have a dancer that is in 2nd-12th grade, we are looking for YOU! (Grades based on the 2017/2018 school year) Please review the information below:
If your dancer is already a member of the PBDS Performance Team:
You will NOT need to try out, your dancer will automatically be placed back on a Performance Team.
If your dancer is already a member of the PBDS Performance Team, is going to be 3rd grade or older, and would like to be considered for Special Choreography:
If your dancer will be in 3rd grade or older and would like to be considered for a solo, duet/trio, small group, elite teams, or additional large groups, they will need to attend both days of one of the tryouts to be considered for these extra routines. Additional routines are optional. Information sheets about Special Choreography will go home on the first night of tryouts.

*We have two tryout dates available for dancers this summer.* However, we are HIGHLY encouraging anyone who is available to attend the FIRST tryout date. It is much easier to place students when all of the dancers are together. We do understand that vacations have already been booked and plans have been made for some, so if you can not make the first tryout date we have listed an alternate tryout date. Please mark your calendars with the tryout dates listed below:
-FIRST Performance Team and Special Choreography Date: Friday, June 23rd at 5:00 p.m. and Saturday, June 24th at 8:30 a.m.
Dancers that will be in 2nd grade will ONLY attend Friday evening, June 23rd. Dancers in 3rd grade and older will attend BOTH days.*Please attend this tryout if you can*
-ALTERNATE tryout date: Wednesday, July 5th at 5:00 p.m. and Thursday, July 6th at 5:00 p.m.
Dancers in 2nd grade will ONLY attend Wednesday evening, July 5th. Dancers in 3rd grade and older will attend BOTH days.
We are so very excited to start our 2017/2018 season! PLEASE let us know if you have any questions or confusion, we would love to see everyone there!
Our performance team is geared towards the serious dancer.
Our performance team has given dancers the great opportunity to dance in front of audiences from all over. We have received many awards and achievements but what is most important is that competitions have given all of the dancers a great feeling of accomplishment, self-esteem, and confidence. We compete at four or five competitions a year and we also compete at a national level every other year.
***PLEASE NOTE: DANCERS THAT WISH TO BE CONSIDERED FOR OUR PERFORMANCE TEAM MUST BE ENROLLED IN A BALLET CLASS. IT IS HIGHLY RECOMMENDED THAT THEY BE ENROLLED IN A COMBO CLASS OF BALLET, JAZZ, AND TAP**
