What We Are About
We are FUN. We have t-shirts calling ourselves the drinking team. We celebrate individuality and diversity and know that it’s our differences from each other that makes us a better team.
We are all about SOCIAL DANCING. We genuinely love the dance and love being on the dance floor. We always look forward to going out social dancing and seeing our friends. While we might not go to every dance, it is not a chore for us to go dancing because it’s the thing that we love most in the world.
We are a FAMILY. We create an environment that is friendly, familiar and exciting. We believe that the best troupes are those that work and play together.
We are HUMBLE about our own dancing. We believe that no matter what happens or how much we learn about this dance, we should always be respectful of other dancers in their journey. While we might get better and celebrate our successes and improvements, we are not arrogant nor do we treat others differently from how we would want to be treated. Instead, we carry ourselves with a quiet confidence because we believe that, in the long run, our character will speak for itself.
Who We Are Looking For
- Dancers who genuinely want to improve their dancing and are seeking new challenges.
- Dancers willing to work hard at their craft.
- Dancers who are able to work well with others and generally like other human beings.
- Dancers who can take constructive criticisms and feedback.
