CAVISE TALENT TEAM
WHAT IS CAVISE TALENT TEAM ?
Cavise Talent Team (CTT) is an award-winning dance competition team, offering additional performance opportunities to students ages 5 years and older. CTT is best suited for dancers interested in making a serious commitment to increased studio training hours, improving technique and performance skills, and gaining on-stage experience.
Do I have to audition?
Students new to Dance Cavise must audition. Currently enrolled students will be placed on the team based on their age and class level. Acceptance on the team is also based on their placement level and faculty recommendations.
What performance genres and opportunities are offered?
CTT dancers can opt to perform in a wide variety of styles including Ballet, Contemporary, Hip Hop, Jazz, Lyrical or Tap. This can be done solo in duets, trios, or groups of 4+. Dancers will be placed on the team based on a combination of their preference, technical ability, and age.
DANCE DISCIPLINE / REQUIREMENTS
What classes are required of CTT members?
CTT members in grades K-2nd must take at least one Dance Cavise class per week. A second class is strongly recommended. CTT members in grades 3rd – 12th must take a minimum of two Dance Cavise classes per week. We strongly recommend at least one Ballet class per week. An additional requirement is the “CTT Team Class”, which will include training in flexibility, strength, jumps, turns , tricks and more.
Team Class 23/24 for Grades K-4th: Wednesday 5:45-6:45pm / Team Class 23/24 for Grades 5th – 12th: Monday 7:30-8:30pm
Finally, a required two week BOOT CAMP is held annually just before the start of the Fall Dance Cavise season. Team members will spend afternoons in technique classes and rehearsing choreography for competitions.
Just as a sports team requires consistent attendance at practices, dance competition teams require the same when it comes to classes and rehearsals. Personal accountability is essential for a successful season and commitment to other team members is a vital component of this success. When a team member is not present, it impacts entire group.
Cavise Talent Team will travel throughout the tri state area for two competitions and two conventions during the dance season. These are weekend events, and all members are expected to attend.
All team members will be held to the highest standards of conduct. Communicating negatively about anyone in or outside the studio will not be tolerated. Team members are expected to show courtesy and respect to all instructors, students, and fellow artists.
In their inaugural season, the Cavise Talent Team brought home several elite gold medals including High Gold 1st, High Gold 3rd and High Gold 5th places. All CTT awards are displayed at Dance Cavise Studios.
