IF YOU ARE CONSIDERING JOINING ONE OF OUR BALLROOM TEAMS FOR NEXT YEAR:

We have been working hard on plans for next year. We had a great year at nationals and learned a lot throughout the year. We have discussed ideas back and forth with many parents and teachers and feel we have come up with some really good and reasonable (and exciting!) plans for teams for next year. Below is a break-down of everything so far. It is still not set in stone but I wanted to get this information out early as you are making your decisions about next year and considering many things.

Thank you dancers for being so wonderful to work with and part of our ballroom program. We feel we will have an even stronger year next year with our teams and will continue to progress and grow! Thank you for your patience throughout this year and hard work and dedication. Our dancers are amazing! As you know in the majority of the syllabus events Legacy was the most represented studio / school. Often times the majority of the final were our students, as well as the majority of the semi-final. We are so proud of our dancers and feel we have built up a strong program of teams, individual coaching, and overall a progress-conducive environment, not to mention that the kids are all great friends and get a long so well! They are forming lasting friendships and learning many great life lessons and values.

We also have plans for many new medleys for the teams next year, all with an upbeat and competitive style. Also lots of costuming ideas are being worked on :) Hopefully all the below info will help you in making informed decisions (sorry it is so long). I have to say, after recovering slightly from nationals, I am already excited for next year. This is just the beginning of great things to come!

One other note, for those that also participate in jazz, ballet, hip hop and ballet teams - we are working on consolidating the schedule so you are at the studio fewer hours, and in most cases, done earlier in the day. Jazz teams will be consolidated, in nearly all cases, to just 2 days a week. Tue and Thu will be the majority of the jazz, hip hop, ballet and ballroom classes. Ballroom teams will be done by 6pm on Tuesdays so in case anyone has Tue mutual they will have that open (preteen teams will be Thursdays only). Wed evenings as always are left empty. Mondays will be jazz technique / production dance rehearsal / some ballet and musical theater. All will be done on Mondays by 6pm (except Musical Theater by 7pm). Hopefully this also helps in your decision-making. A full schedule will be posted shortly of the Fall classes. Attached is the current "tentative" version.

BALLROOM TEAMS 2014 - 2015

AUDITIONS: MAY 19TH 6PM AT THE STUDIO

No partner necessary to audition. You will be taught a short syllabus American cha cha routine and American foxtrot routine and will audition with those routines. In auditions we will determine which age category you will be accepted into (PeeWee, Preteen, Jr or Adv). Then we will teach a routine in the 6-week summer course (required for Preteen & Jr teams) and after the summer we will determine if you will be on the A or B Teams. It is possible to be on Latin A team and Standard B, or vice versa, just as examples, or both A or both B.

**We feel strongly that working with the coaches in their expertise area will create the strongest and most competitive dancers possible. We already have very competitive dancers but I know we can be even better! This strong base will also prepare dancers faster for going into Open categories and continuing to be highly competitive and preparing them for scholarship and college team opportunities, if they are interested in that.

Fall - mall show, winter recital
Spring - mall show, spring recital, summer showcase
Other notes
Dress code will be enforced including wearing ballroom shoes

Jr A and B teams include ballroom conditioning & fundamentals of technique. Then the majority of class time is working on medleys and showdance pieces. Preteen A (and possibly Preteen B), Jr A and Jr B teams will compete at nationals in 2015.

Note: the discussion has been brought up as to whether being on a studio team, high school team, BYU team, etc. has an advantage when it comes to getting a scholarship into BYUís ballroom dance program, or UVUís program. It is good to note that BYU tends to diversify their scholarship awarding process to various programs and does not exclusively give out scholarships to those on their youth teams. In other words, they tend to choose the top students from a variety of programs, such as Extreme, Timpview, Provo High, Pacific, etc. etc. Therefore, being on a studio team does not create necessarily a disadvantage when it comes to getting a scholarship, which is a huge motivator for progressing in ballroom. Just some food for thought. :)

We hope to see you at auditions!
