Varsity Dance Team
The Tiger Girls Dance Team is a precision dance group that promotes school spirit and generates enthusiasm for St. Agnes Academy. The Tiger Girls study and practice various levels of dance technique and dance styles while developing physical strength, flexibility, stamina, and coordination. The Tiger Girls perform at pep rallies, basketball games, competitions, Tiger Camp, SAA Open House, SAA Gala, and dance concerts. The team tryouts occur in April and each member attends a mandatory dance camp held the first two weeks in August. All team members are required to complete summer dance technique hours at a local dance studio or attend a summer dance intensive.
All officers must be familiar with everything expected of a team member, cooperate with the Director and other officers, maintain a sense of responsibility for the organization, and represent St. Agnes Academy and the Tiger Girls dance team with class. Each officer sets an example for her fellow teammates by demonstrating a positive attitude, striving for academic excellence, and setting a high standard for herself and others. All officers are required to tryout in May and attend a mandatory officer camp the second week in June.
Potential team members should attend the informational meeting to gain a better understanding of expectations during the tryout process. An updated physical must be given directly to Mrs. Chilton prior the first day of the dance clinic. During the clinic each candidate will learn a routine consisting of jazz, hip hop, and high kicks. Each candidate will also be trained in ballet the last 30 min of clinic sessions. A panel of judges will score each candidate on technique, memory, projection, kicks, splits, and overall impression. Results are posted outside the dance room the following day.
