2021-2022 Dance Team Tryouts



Becoming a Waukesha South Varsity Dancer is where all the fun begins! As a dance team member, you will attend camps, games, pep rallies, competitions, and many other exciting events! We are a co-ed program and welcome ALL Waukesha South students who are interested in dancing to try out. 

Dance is a demanding sport. Our season begins in May and does not end until March or April, with practices and games throughout each week. As a top representative of Waukesha South, you will become a role model to many. You are required to keep good grades, be respectful, have a positive attitude, and be a role model in your school and in your community. Your grades will be considered in your tryout. 

No experience is required to tryout for our team. Should you have any questions, please don’t hesitate to contact Varsity Coach Kathy Murphy-Ott  at kmurphyott@waukesha.k12.wi.us or Spirit Program Coordinator, Sara Dood at sdood@waukesha.k12.wi.us
