Team Results

We are SO thrilled with all you awesome dancers! Please know that a lot of thought was put in to each placement to get everyone in just the right place! Based on the larger than expected turn out for auditions, we developed some additional companies and teams.


Some of the teams/companies we would like to create, don't have quite enough dancers for a full team yet. If your name is not listed below, please contact the office to discuss class options. We would love to fill up each group if we can get the minimum number of dancers.

Audition Info. Update

Wow! We had GREAT auditions - what a talented and amazing group of dancers came out!Due to a larger than expected turn out, our auditions took longer than we anticipated. A HUGE thank you all the dancers and parents for your patience and support! We know it was a long night but everyone was so awesome. We didn't feel we could rush through the process and wanted to give everyone equal time to keep the process fair.

The large turn out also makes the job of team placement very difficult, as well. Our judges still have some deliberating to do to ensure we get everyone right where they need to be. We really want what is best for each of you!!Results will be posted on Tuesday, May 31. Thanks, again, to everyone. We couldn't ask for a greater group! Remember, upcoming registration from 5-8 p.m.

June 1-2 Ogden
June 7-8 Brigham

Team placements will be announced Tuesday, May 31. We are anxious for results, too!
