      Dazzlers Dance Team Tryout Clinic

      Do you want to be a Dazzler? Any girls in 6th-8th grade interested in trying out for the Dazzlers dance team of DFMS or DFHS is invited to attend the Dazzlers Tryout Prep Clinic on March 17th. During the one-day clinic, dancers will work on technique necessary to excel in tryouts in addition to working on skills needed to pick up dance movement, memorize it, and perform it to impress a judges' panel. The dances taught will include movement that will be seen in the tryout. The clinic will also offer skills that can be applied to any dance tryout at this level. For more information and to secure your spot, please follow this link here for the registration form.
