Tuesday night is when we hold "Dance Tech Night." Dance Tech is your chance to compete for your team in dance events that showcase your talent. This competition is made up of five different dance camp team events:
Dance Jeopardy: Contestants from each team answer "dance trivia questions (often by performing a move). Categories can include different dance styles, dance history, pop culture, etc.
Pirouettes: One or two campers from each team compete in the pirouette contest. Campers are judged on technique for each assigned pirouette. Assigned pirouettes can include: single pirouette, double pirouette, triple pirouette, pique turns, chaine turns, fouette, fouette en tournant, etc.
Strength: One camper from each team competes in the strength contest. A second camper from each team assumes a support role. Competing campers must sit on the floor and lift their bodies completely off the ground. The second camper sits behind their teammate with their hand raised until their teammate falls. The last camper up wins.
Flexibility: One camper from each team competes in the flexibility contest. Campers are judged on technique for each assigned position as well as execution of their optional pose. Campers should be able to perform the following poses: right leg split, left leg split, center split, pancake through to seal stretch, downward dog, standing pike stretch, right/left leg up, standing wise scale, right/left batman, bridge, optional pose.
