2018-2019 Dance Club Information

Welcome to the 2018-2019 Dance Club Registration with St. Michael's Blues Athletics.

We are excited to announce that we are starting a St. Michael’s Catholic School Dance Team. The dance team is open to students in 2nd through 8th grade. The dance team will perform at pep fests, Marathon, Catholic Schools Week, and a recital at the end of the year. There will be two teams, one with students in grades 2nd-4th and another with students 5th-8th. Practices will be Tuesdays after school beginning Dec. 18th, from 2:30 to 4:00. The location of practices is yet to be determined (somewhere in St. Mike’s).

There will be two adult coaches assisted by Junior Leaders: Mrs. Jessica Maslow and Mrs. Jina Duchnowski. Students in grades 5th-8th will have the opportunity to be Junior Leaders, please see requirements to become a junior leader. The Junior Leaders will help choreograph and teach younger team members while setting good examples.

The cost is $40, includes fun t-shirt and any other materials needed.
