Important Announcements ...

Choreography Dates - CONFIRMED!

  • All team choreography will take place at Heat Athletics in Sussex.  While there is a parent waiting area, the gym will be closed to viewing.  Choreography is split into three sessions, and attendance is mandatory at each session.
  • It is extremely important that each and every team member attend choreography.  They will be learning their specific role in choreography, and if they aren't there, there is no one there to learn their role.  Their stunt group will also suffer because they will be short a team member, and be unable to learn their stunts.
