The purpose of the On My Toes Dance Team Program is to provide students with an opportunity to participate in an activity that develops sportsmanship, character, confidence, and unity among their classmates and friends. Participation on each team is by invite only and auditions are held annually. As a member of our teams, you represent our dance program, and teachers, and your dedication and effort in class is very important in order to be a part of the team. We will teach our team members to show determination, dedication, and desire to be a proud and productive member of our teams.
At OMT, we have 3 competition teams: a Petite, Junior, and Elite Competition team that competes locally approximately three times a year! You must have a desired level of commitment not just for yourself but for your ENTIRE team, and for all of your dance classes. Being on the team, success depends on all team members being at practice consistently and doing their part and having the knowledge of the routines.
In addition to our competition teams, OMT has 2 crews: our Dance Crew & Junior Crew. These teams perform locally approximately 5 times each dance season. Our Crews are great for dancers looking to gain performance experience and grow their technique without the pressures of competing. Our Dance Crew is for ages 5-7 and our Junior Crew is for ages 8+.
In order for our teams to be as successful as they are, all teams have certain class requirements for their dancers effective fall 2022.
