  Instructor: Ms. McLaughlin  

The Hampton Middle School Dance Team hosts auditions every fall of the new school year. The team consists of 6th, 7th, and 8th graders (girls and boys). The tryout process involves attendance to an interest meeting and completion of an application. Students must have a complete and current (no earlier than May 1 of that school year) sports physical on file with the athletic director or in their dance application in order to try-out.  The form must be on file before the student is allowed to try-out. Also, the student and parent have to attend a concussion training before, during, or after tryouts. These are offered periodically during the start of each sport's season. Please contact the school office for details about the next training offered.Upon completion of the application, candidates are asked to participate in a dance clinic and the physical try-outs.  Final cuts are made after the physical auditions. The team performs at the half time girls' and boys' basketball games, local competitions, and special events. The team performs to hip-hop, jazz, lyrical, kick, variety, and pom-pom routines. The goal and focus of the team is to promote self-esteem and self-awareness, while developing agility and poise through the art of dance. Practices are always pre-scheduled and run seasonally.
