**Fundraising and sponsorship encouraged
Team Canada Dance is ONE team, but we have 2 groups attending the Tap Championships One from Ontario and the other Alberta.
Canada (and all other nations) are only allowed to bring a certain number of dancers to the championships. This is a World Championships, it is not like other competitions and there are many competitors! Countries are to bring their best 3 in each division:
Formations: 3 formations in each Children, Junior and Adult age divisions (8-24 dancers)
Group: 3 of each Children, Junior and Adult age divisions (4-7 dancers)
Trio/Duo: 3 of each in Children, Junior and Adult Divisions
Solo: 3 of each Children, Junior and Adult Divisions in each Female and Male Categories
*everyone will participate in the formations, however, the *extras (group, duo/trio, solo) will be divided between the 2 provinces. The Director, and not the choreographer will have the final say on how they will be divided and who will get the positions. It is often very difficult to choose the dancers for these and it is not personal. You made it on the team, but spots are limited!
YOU WILL HAVE A CORRESPONDING MEMBER PAGE TO REFER TO WITH MORE INFORMATION ONCE TEAM IS SET
The TENTATIVE SCHEDULE has been released for tap and is as follows:
There will be one mandatory summer rehearsal that kids can pick between either Calgary or Vancouver. This would be to get footwork done, before actually staging and putting them in "formation". Lisa generally works that way when doing a large group anyway.
