SUMMIT, NJ - The Connection Dance Team is holding auditions for their 2018-19 season beginning June 15, with sessions for ages 5-8 will be held that day at 4 p.m., auditions for ages 9+ taking place June 16 at 11 a.m, and Acro Team auditions (ages 8+ only) held on June 16 at 3 p.m. Call backs will be held June 18 or 19, starting at 3:45 pm.

The mission for The Connection Dance Team (TCDT) is to build well-rounded dancers through a safe, fun and competitive environment. Dancers are selected by audition in mid-June each year to make up the five levels of dancers on TCDT. All members have the opportunity to compete solos, duets and trios in addition to be part of the Acro and Elite Teams. In past seasons, dancers have received high rankings, platinum scores and countless “special” awards. Not only will all dancers have the opportunity to perform at competitions, but at community events and special events held at The Connection as well.

“The beauty of the dance and performing arts program at The Connection is that we are able to offer such a diverse selection of opportunities for dancers of all levels," said Jessica Fascenelli Weisenbach, The Connection's Dance and Performing Arts Director / Dance Team Coach. "Our program allows kids and adults to enjoy our classes in a relaxed, recreational setting while learning from professionals. We want to inspire our young dancers to be the best that they can be.”
