What styles of dance does the dance team perform?
Our team performs various styles of jazz, pom, and hip-hop.
Does the team compete?
We travel every year to compete at both the regional and national level. During the 2017-2018 season, we attended the DTU College Classic National Competition and placed 5th place in hip-hop, and 2nd place in team division. To see the footage from nationals and other team-related content, you can check out our team Instagram account at @stonehilldanceteam
How often does the team practice?
Typically, we practice 3x/week for 2-3 hours per practice during both semesters. Some exceptions could include less practices if there is a game day performance that conflicts with our standard practice time or more practices in the weeks leading up to nationals.
What does the team perform at?
We perform at all home football and basketball games as well as other miscellaneous events on campus such as the Midnight Madness pep rally. We host and participate/perform at an on-campus event each semester and volunteer throughout the year at events such as Relay For Life and Special Olympics.
When are auditions held?
Auditions are held in June and students have the option of attending one of two sessions at the end of each freshman orientation session (i.e. Auditions in June 2018 determine the 2018-2019 roster). There is also an alternative option to send in a video submission for students who are unable to travel and audition on-site. For inquiries and information on what to prepare for auditions, make sure to email the Head Coach at firstname.lastname@example.org.
How can I be sure if I want to join the team?
Prospective students are welcomed and encouraged to attend a game and/or practice to get an idea of what it's like to be a part of the team and to have the chance to meet with the coach and team members to ask any and all questions. We also host a collegiate dance team audition prep clinic during the spring semester (notifications and information regarding the prep clinic will be posted through the team's instagram page) which is highly recommended for anyone thinking about auditioning in June.
