How should I prepare for dance team tryouts?


Question: How should I prepare for dance team tryouts?
I want to try out for the dance team, but I don't know where to start. How can I prepare for tryouts? Is there anything I can do to improve my chances of making the dance team?
Answer: The best way to prepare for dance team tryouts is to take a dance class. If you've never taken dance classes before, try enrolling in a beginner ballet, jazz or hip-hop class.

Even if you've taken dance classes in the past, it's a good idea to take a class or two before tryouts to sharpen your skills. Focus on flexibility and strength.

Some dance teams require members to have their splits, so make sure you stretch each day. You'll also need a lot of strength and stamina to be a dance team member. Focus on building muscles in your back and stomach, and condition yourself by raising your heart rate each day by exercising.
