Important Info: Tryouts 2019-2020

Competition Costumes, Dates and Pricing

2019-20 COMP TEAM INFO
  • Competition teams are a full year commitment.  We start in June and do not end until may of 2020.  While understand many of these kids will make high school cheer or dance teams in 2020, but they will still need to finish out their commitment to their Bliss team, as we have routines that depend upon every student.
  • Each team has a required summer camp and minimum punch card class requirement for June/July. You can see those requirements in the next section.
  • NEW!  Choreography will begin In August, it will be 1-2 times a week during their regular fall hour time frame (schedule will be posted/emailed end of June)
  • Competition are held to a higher standard. Besides summer requirements Bliss Competition teams have a 2-3 day commitment during the regular season, as well as strict polices on number of absences, tardies and dedication.
  • Competition teams are rewarding. Students progress quicker with the higher level of commitment. Additionally the routines are cleaner and they can be given more challenging material. They also learn to stay positive under pressure and bond as a team.
  • Parent meeting Tuesday May 21st, 7:00pm. Studio 1 at Bliss. We will make it as brief as possible, I will give a run down about what two expect for this season and then answer your questions.  This is for anyone considering trying out but also for RETURNING PARENTS. This will be your ONLY chance to discuss any date conflicts as well as hear about any changes for the upcoming season, ask questions etc.

CAMP:  You must attend at least one camp for each team you are on (crews = hip hop camps, companies = dance camps, cheer = cheer camps) .
