COME DANCE WITH US THIS SUMMER
This will be open to all students who come to Spring Try-Outs (grades going into 7-12 for the 2023-2024 school year) that are interested in training with the Winter NPDT Coaching Staff to work on dance skills, technique, conditioning, and more to help them prepare for Winter Season Auditions! This is a great opportunity for interested students to get a feel for what it's like to be a part of the Trojan Dance Team Program and for the Coaching Staff to get to know each athlete better. The summer training program is scheduled to run June 1st - July 31st (exact dates and times will be posted on our team calendar). There will be performance opportunities as well. In addition to regular scheduled training program practices (typically Monday, Tuesday, Wednesday, Thursday with a couple Friday/Saturday practices during the summer) there will be options available for student athletes to choose from including additional technique & conditioning classes, guest instructor workshops ($85-$150) and Just For Kix Dance Camp (Price $469). **Athletes must be enrolled in summer training to participate in JFK Camp.

Winter practices are held daily Monday-Saturday during the season (times TBD). The athletes selected to participate in Winter Season will be placed on our B-Squad, Junior Varsity, or Varsity Rosters. The various levels of our competitive teams will be at different stages in their skill and ability development. All levels of NPDT are very important to our program and growth as a whole. Dancers will be required to learn Kick and Jazz routines to work on and compete with at various Invitationals, Conference Meets, Conference Championship, and Sections in hopes to advance to compete at the State level. Our Season will conclude with a Banquet held a few weeks after the last competition.
