Dance Team

[[Element: ]]

Do you love to dance? Join the Kirkwood Dance Team! We dance competitively and represent Kirkwood at community events. We are committed to dance, teamwork, school spirit, and having lots of fun together.

Our team performs pom, jazz, and hip-hop–style routines. If you’re interested in auditioning, you should be well versed in these styles and be able to execute a variety of leaps and turns.

3 Reasons to Dance with Us

  1. It’s lots of fun! Our team is all about working hard and having fun together.
  2. We’re committed! Learn creative choreography and perfect your art with us.
  3. Show your school spirit! Represent the college while having a great time.

Kirkwood Dance Team spring tryouts are set for Sunday, May 15, from 10 a.m. to 1 p.m. at the Kirkwood Rec Center. You don’t need to have anything prepared for tryouts. We will teach you a combination and ask you to show us your skills (leaps, turns, etc.).


Here’s what you need to know about the Kirkwood Dance Team:

  • Practice happens twice a week for two hours per practice. Additional practice times may be called when nearing a competition.
  • We host an annual dance show in the fall and a competition in the winter.
  • Out-of-pocket expenses could include the following (but are not limited to): summer camp/choreography, team warm-up jacket, jazz shoes, tights, and possibly attending an out-of-state competition. When possible, we will use our team budget to help cover expenses.
