We are now offering a video tryout as an alternative way to audition for the Lionettes Dance Team for those aspiring members who are unable to attend the selected tryout date. Each video must include the dancer performing all of the skills listed above. A link to a video will be sent out so each dancer can learn the tryout routines which must also be included in the video. Specific guidelines as to what should be included in the video, acceptable video format and deadlines will be posted at a later date. Please check our website for further instructions!
