RedTail Dance Team Open Tryouts in Independence, Parkersburg

RedTail Dance Team Open Tryouts in Independence, Parkersburg

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.
