NEW CHILDREN WHO MAY BE INTERESTED IN A COMPETITION TEAM PLEASE COME ALONG!


It’s that exciting time of the year where we put together next years teams. This year we became European Champions for the second year running, this year was in Germany and the team had a fantastic time!


Its very important we know which teams children would like to tryout for, please don’t sign up for a team if you cannot commit to it. We like dance teams to have even numbers for formations and an equal mix of tricks, for cheerleading teams the girls are given a specific role such as base, flyer etc. Iv spoken to most of the children yesterday and they have told me the teams they would like to try out for, let me know if this needs changing. Tryouts are for all ages and all weekly members even if not taken part in competitions before. We encourage everyone to come give it a go, even if a bit unsure. Please message Tara on Facebook or text if you need anymore details.


We would LOVE to have a masters Pom Dance team to compete at UKCA choreographed with a theme by Tara and Chloe, no tryouts needed!
