McGovern Irish Dance Performance Team 

Try outs will be held August 28, open to current MID members and open to the public

If you are 12 -17 years old and interested in performing with a dynamic, creative and powerful Irish dance team, we would love to see you at our try outs!

Performance Team Try Outs - August 28  
Deadline to Sign up is Aug. 15
Performance Team
We will still welcome ALL of our dancers to participate in our performances but I think it is important to have a core group of polished, well practiced dancers at each show.  These dancers will help lead the "up and coming" dancers and to put on the best performance each time we set our feet on the stage and be the ambassadors and leaders for McGovern Irish Dance

Performance Team Practices will be held
Wednesdays 5:45 - 6:45
Saturdays 12:00 - 1:30

and your commitment is for one full session
Session 1 - September - February
Session 2 - March - August
Belonging to this team  is a very big commitment, every member needs to be just as committed as the next, therefore rules/guidelines have to be set and followed.  

Every team member will make a conscious effort to support one another and help the team improve as a whole. Help each other have a positive attitude, motivate each other, and be dedicated to the team.  Dance team members need to be prepared at practices, performances, and competition.

$360 per session

Tryouts will be held Sunday August 28, 2022 - Deadline to sign up for the Try Outs is August 15.  
Once the sign ups come through, I will set a schedule.
