Sign Up for 2020-2021 Competitive Dance Team and Fall Showstoppers Tryouts:
Showstoppers has been moved to the spring:
If you were a member of the Wayzata Showstoppers in the past then you do not need to participate in the August 17 tryout. We will guarantee you a spot on the team for the spring. Please let us know if by things changing to the spring you are no longer able to participate.
Dancers new to the program will be going through the tryout process on August 17th. You will be put into two pods in two separate gyms with 3 captains, there will also be two coaches who will be overseeing the tryouts. We will post who is in each pod and what gym you should go to on the day of tryouts.
Dancers will need to wear masks into the building and in the gyms but they are not required to wear them while participating in physical activity. Coaches will be masked during the tryout process.
Dancers are asked to remain socially distanced during all times at tryouts. In hallways, in gyms, while practicing, during breaks, during the tryout. We will have no physical contact between dancers at any time, so that means no hooking during kicks or any partner work. They will try out in small groups but will remain socially distanced the entire time.
You will not need to be registered through the athletic department to participate in the tryout. Only once you make the team will you need to register in the spring to participate on the team.
As we have said many times, thank you so much for your understanding as we know how difficult it is to keep up with all of these changes. We look forward to seeing you on August 17th at the tryout!!
