The Saint Mary's University Dance Club is comprised of dedicated Saint Mary's University students who share a love of dance. The Club’s main focus is on hip-hop, but often incorporates multiple styles of dance into their routines. Its members have various styles of dance experience. The Saint Mary's Dance team exists to give the opportunity for dancers in the SMU community to share their passion and contributes to school spirit. Over the years, the Dance Club has focused on performing at Varsity games, competing at competitions and fundraising.
The Dance Club Team has won six Dance titles at Cheer Expo Nationals in 2008, 2009, 2010, 2013, 2014, and 2015. They have also received the bid to represent Canada at Dance Worlds in Disney World, Florida each of those years. In 2008, they placed 8th at Dance Worlds, and qualified for the finals in 2010, 2013, 2014, and 2015.
September 11 & 12, 2017
Auditions span over two days and consist of everyone learning a piece of choreography together before being split into smaller groups. We look at how quickly you can pick up the choreography, how you perform and how you improve over the two days. Dance experience isn't necessarily required but it would be helpful in picking up choreography.
All team members are expected to attend all practices. The success of the team relies on every member and their commitment. The Dance Team practices Mondays 8-10pm, Tuesday 8-10pm (when needed), and Fridays 6-8pm. Please consider these times before trying out as we expect full commitment.
Each Dance Team member is responsible for their own costume and travel/competition fees. However, fundraising will be organized during the year to help lower the costs of these fees.
$50 team fee (And up, depending on competitions)
