Time for Shimmyteams Season Three!
We aim to iterate for each season, making the experience better each time for the participants. This season we are going to mix it up again and have even more types of teams to choose from.
Teams we will be auditioning for:
— Lindy Hop
— Lindy Switch
The coaches will be some combination of Ann Mony, Ryan Calloway, Shannon Lea Watkins, Sean Krazit, and Hannah MacKenzie-Margulies. Carissa Koo and Tor Helmer will be continuing the balboa team.
Q: Where is the audition?
A: Lines Ballet on 7th St, studio 6.
Q: Will the teams be traveling?
A: Travel will be optional for each team member. The Lindy, Switch and Solo teams will probably be taking interested members to ILHC, and potentially Camp Hollywood.
Q: A switch team!
A: That isn't a question, but yes we are also excited about it. Details about this coming out before the end of March.
Q: How will auditions work?
A: TBD (to be announced at the beginning of April)
Q: What are the costs involved?
A: TBD. Probably $80-$90 per month.
Q: Who is coaching what?
A: TBD (to be announced before the end of March)
Q: Wow four teams? That is a lot!
A: Yes it is! But we can only have four teams if enough of you join them (we may have to cut one of the them). So help us spread the word about Shimmyteams!
Q: How much time does this take?
A: Practices will be 2hrs a week. For the competition teams there might be an extra practice the week before ILHC.
Q: When will practices be?
A: Probably Monday evenings, 8-10pm. TBC.
Q: What is the time commitment?
A: A two hour group practice each week (no more), plus independent practice at home.
Q: Can I do more than one team?
A: No! We are trying to get all the practices at the same time at the same venue.
Q: Can I audition for multiple teams?
A: Yes! This audition event will cover auditions for all the teams, you can be considered for as many as you want.
Q: What if I can't make the audition?
A: Video auditions are available for those that can't make the auditions.
