Jazz Tryouts are Monday, May 5th
Dear JFK Dancers, JAZZ TRYOUTS WILL BE FROM 6:30-9:30 AT ST. PAUL'S LUTHERAN CHURCH IN THE GYM (1515 S. Harrison St, Grand Island) THIS IS FOR ALL DANCERS WHO WILL BE IN 6TH-12TH GRADE IN THE FALL. All jazz dancers must also be in core kix. The one exception is if a dancer is also on a high school dance team. They will be getting the additional stretching and strength training at high school practice. If a dancer wishes to remain on the Senior Jazz Team- you do not need to come to the tryout. If a dancer wishes to be on the Rising Stars or Starmakers teams, you DO need to come to the tryout. All 3 teams will be working above their normal skill level and will be pushed to improve each week. All dancers will be learning a one minute jazz routine. They will then tryout in small groups demonstrating the routine, and a breakdown of skills stated below. Toe touches and c jumps will also be considered. Those trying out will be scored based on skill level and quality of the routine and skills. Judges will be Coach Holly, Coach Rebekah and Coach Wald. Coach Holly will coach our Senior Jazz and Rising Stars Teams. Coach Wald will coach the Starmakers team on Thursday nights 9-10pm. Rising Stars- 6th-12th grade Technique level- solid doubles, flat splits, 1-2 ala secondes with proper form, solid right and left leaps, toe touches with proper form and a skill of choice A new uniform will be selected for the Rising Stars team. I will notify those who make that team of the details. Starmakers- 7th-12th grade Pre-requisite: 1 year of lyrical or jazz Technique level- solid triples, flat splits (both), 4+ ala secondes with proper form, solid right, left and open leaps plus one leap of choice (switch leap or surprise; as examples) Toe touches with proper form and a skill of choice For both teams, energy, facials and a positive attitude must be present at the tryout. Dancers will go home following the tryout and will receive a phone call no later than Tuesday morning at 10am to let them know if they made Rising Stars or Starmakers. They will receive notification either way. Let me know if you have any additional questions. If you are unable to make the tryout, let me know and we can arrange for a video tryout. Please pass this on to any one who may be interested. Our dancers have indicated they have several new friends coming next year. Be sure to let them know so they are at the tryout on Monday, May 5th. We are not doing a big fall tryout this year. This is it. We hope to have a great turnout. See you soon! ...
