Dance team holds tryouts this week

The Purrfections will be concluding their annual team tryouts in the gym Friday from 4 p.m. to 6:30 p.m. in the gym. The first round of tryouts were held Monday. Those wanting to audition must have updated FHSAA physical and consent forms. Students planning to tryout must also wear comfortable dance clothes and jazz shoes.

“Auditions are split into two days: one is for learning a dance and the other is for evaluating how well you retained the choreography,” sophomore Lauren Novak said. “We start with stretching and progress to technique, and finally move on to the dance.”

Freshman Bella Stazzone said being a part of the Purrfections has impacted her life in a positive way and that she has not only improved as a dancer, but has enjoyed being with people she has come to admire and love.

“I would 100 percent recommend dance team to other girls,” Stazzone said. “You learn how to work in a group and become very close with that group. You form strong bonds while having fun doing what you love, and improve as a team while doing it.”
