The RedTail Dance team at Hawkeye Community College will host two open tryouts in June:
- Friday, June 22, 2018, beginning at 1:00pm in East Elementary Schoool, 1103 1st St W, Independence.
- Saturday, June 23, 2018, beginning at 9:00 a.m. in Aplington-Parkersburg High School, 610 Johnson St, Parkersburg.
“We had great tryouts this spring and have already built a strong roster,” said Meghan Reilly, head RedTail Dance coach. “But I know there are some who couldn’t make it to tryouts in April, and others who were or are still deciding on their plans for the fall. I hope they’ll take advantage of these tryouts.”
Participants will learn a 40-second routine at tryouts and should come prepared to demonstrate an eight-count pom routine, toe touch, and any other special skills like splits, turns, and unique jumps. Participants are encouraged to wear comfortable, easy-moving clothing and either sneakers or dance shoes of their choice.
The RedTail Dance team performs at home RedTail events and competes at a variety of state and national competitions against other colleges. Members of the team must enroll as full-time Hawkeye Community College students and meet other eligibility requirements.
