Below are the items and information you need for 2021-22 Pommie Dance Team Tryouts

  • What COVID precautions will be taken?

    Posted by:

    1) Everyone involved in the try out process is required to wear a mask at all times and while dancing.  If you are not familiar with dancing in a mask, we suggest you start practicing.  :)

    2) Upon arrival, each participant will be asked to fill out a COVID screening questionaire and your temperature will be taken.  Please do not come to tryouts if you are sick or have any illness symptoms, especially those related to COVID.  If you are sick, we will make sure you have the opportunity to still tryout.  

    3) Participants will be grouped or cohorted.  Those groups will remain the same throughout the week of tryouts. 

    4) Participants need to bring their own water bottles. 

    5) Participants will be asked to maintaine social distancing as much as possible.
