Prepping for Audition Week

Audition week is almost here! Beginning next Monday, we will begin the process for new and returning members to tryout for the Palo Alto High School Varsity dance team. Here’s a little about what to expect and what you should bring:

*Note- all participants who would like to audition should also be prepared to attend the MANDATORY new team meeting during the evening of Friday April 19th (one parent or guardian must be in attendance). New team members should also be prepared to attend practice one day a week for the remainder of the school year)


Monday- introductions, stretch, across the floor work (jazz combos), go over paperwork

Tuesday- stretch, practice across the floor work, learn first combination (contemporary)

Wednesday- stretch, practice across the floor work, learn 2nd combination (hip hop)

Thursday- stretch, review all combinations and final cheer, review application and paperwork requirements

Friday- Tryouts (on Thursday you will sign up for a 30 minute time slot between 4 and 7pm)


Athletic clothes that you can sweat in

Dance shoes (jazz shoes, half soles, sneakers)

Water and a snack

Questions & a great attitude! (:
