    About the SHS dance team...
    The Strongsville High School Dance Team performs jazz and hip-hop routines at the Tuesday and Friday home basketball games, competitions, showcases, and other performance opportunities during the year. Dance Team is comprised of talented dancers/ athletes with extensive backgrounds in dance and training that collectively represents more than 6 area dance studios. Realizing that dancers have busy schedules, the SHS dance team works together to be flexible and considerate of each others schedules. If you are concerned about conflicts with any another sport, please just talk to Coach Cunningham.
    The SHS dance team participates in the OASSA Regional Dance competition.  This past year, we qualified for States!  The OASSA competitions take place in early February (regionals) and late Feb/early March (states).  Selected Dancers will need to attend a few choreography days over the summer and weekly practices during the school year.  More information will be given at auditions or you can email Coach Cunningham. If you are interested in auditioning, please follow the link below to pre-register. 
    It is important to note that there will be NO pre-auditon clinics held to teach the audition choreography prior to the audition; and the dance will NOT be taught at the audition either.  Dancers will receive a link to an audition video via email to learn in advance and should come to the audition prepared to perform the dance.   If you are unable to attend the audition, please email coach Cunningham prior to the audition date to make alternative arrangements.  Preregistration is required to obtain the dance audition video.
