Team Focus: The mission of the St Susann Dance team is to provide high quality beginning dance through professional instruction in a positive, well organized, family oriented atmosphere. The program promotes strong self-confidence, self-respect, discipline, team work and an appreciation of the fine art of dance.
Evaluations: St Susann Dance Team is open to all girls in grades 5-8, for those wishing to tryout for our Competition Pom team, we offer a tryout in October for girls in grades 6-8. This team will compete in several competitions during our season. There is not a tryout for our regular dance team offered to girls in grades 5 – 8 and it is possible (and preferable) for girls to be on both teams.
Competitions: Competitions for our Competition Pom team typically occur in January & February. There are times when our last competition of the season could occur in very early March. Our regular dance team does not participate in competitions, but will perform at basketball games & other fun events.
Practices: are usually at St. Susanna or Grace Chapel. Dance team practices are on Fridays after school until 5:00 and Competition Pom practices are on Wednesdays after school until 5:00
Coaches Corner: Our dance team is Nationally recognized and you will be receiving quality dance instruction from coaches with well over 25 years combined experience in many facets in the art of dance. Many graduates of our program have gone on to dance at both the high school and college levels. We do many team building activities where girls learn the importance of being a team member and bond with other girls in different grade levels. We also strongly emphasize the importance of spirituality and service in our lives. The St. Susanna Dance Team is truly a great experience that your child will take with her well into the future!

Elite (located in West Chester) to allow our dancers to work on their
