To provide a well-developed dance program for youth that will not only advance the skill level of dancers, but will encourage community involvement, teamwork, dedication, strong work ethic, respect and positive self-esteem. 

Audition information:

Audition day will run in a rotation format. The rotations will include learning basic choreography and dance skills, auditioning in small groups in front of the coaches/judges and also sizing for team apparel. You will not be purchasing any attire this day; you will just be sizing.

What to bring on audition day:

· A photograph (any size) of the applicant. The photo will not be judged and will only be used as a reference for the judges. Photos will not be returned

· Water bottle – no food or other beverages will be allowed in the studio. Please eat before arriving and plan accordingly

What to wear:

Please arrive in fitted dance attire (leotard and tights, leggings and a fitted tank top, etc.) 

Judging Criteria

During the audition process the coaches will be looking for applicants with cheer and dance skills, a positive attitude and the potential to learn and execute our choreography. An example of some of the skills you might be asked to complete based on grades K,1,2,3,4:  single turn, splits, toe touch, leaps, chaine, etc.   If you are in an older age group:  double turn, turn combinations, leap combinations, pique,  splits, kicks, etc..  The teams are selected based on age, skill level and experience. Although we do have the teams currently divided by grade, they may be adjusted bases on coach’s discretion. The judges and coaches decision is final and will remain confidential. Score sheets will not be available.

Team Selection 

The 2015 MVC All Stars team will be announced via email by the end of the day on Tuesday, August 25th. Please be sure to add to your contacts to eliminate the chance of the email going into “spam”.

If you are selected to the 2015 team, a mandatory parent meeting will be on Thursday, August 27th at 6:00pm at the Winter Park Media Room. This will be an informational meeting and program registration.

The MVC All Stars program was established in 2007.

The 2013 MVC Training Program consists of 35 ladies who have been spending their summer and fall dancing, working out, practicing interviews, cheer motions, technique, and most importantly, making new friends! Every Tuesday night, the ladies spend two hours working towards self improvement and getting ready for the 2014 MVC Auditions. Besides practice time together, this incredible group of ladies performed at a Vikings home game, and the MVC holiday show in November. The ladies have been learning different styles in dance to help the group be as versatile as possible, and are pushing themselves towards their own personal best. They are an amazing group- full of talent, charisma and kindness. As you can see from their professional photo shoot; they are also beautiful - we are excited to see what the future holds for all of them!

The Training Program was established in 2006.
