We are collecting members for a formation team. Currently, we do not have a set schedule for this, but we would like to see who would be interested in this program. For those of you who are not familiar with formations teams, it is a set performance team of about 4-8 couples that dance in unison for about 4-5 minutes. If you are interested, then please fill out the summer availability form so we can figure out a time and also send us an email regarding your interest in the team. Once we get a set number of people interested in the formation then we will give out details such as cost, practice times, and goals.
