Contest Season Information

2016-2017

Contest season is quickly approaching!

It is an exciting time for our team as we plan and prepare to participate in a friendly competition season with fellow LISD dance teams across the district. I wanted to make sure that new members are informed about how the requirements and expectations for Majestics will change now that football season is over.


Majestics are not required to participate in contest season. Many of our dancers signed up for Majestics to be a part of a team, make friends, and have fun performing opportunities. Competing in front of large crowds, under pressure, may not appeal to all dancers at this time. For that reason, Majestics are allowed to choose whether or not they want to to participate in contest season.

Before You Commit:

Before your Majestic commits to participating in contest season there are some things you need to know. The "Contest Audition Information" memo goes into more detail regarding expectations and attendance requirements for the season (see link at the bottom of this email). Below is a summarized list:


  • 1. Dancers must attend all designated before and after school rehearsals.
  • 2. Dancers must attend all extended rehearsals, dress rehearsals and all team competitions (see calendar).
  • 3. Pay a contest fee of $75. The fee pays for contest entry fees, meals at contest, guest choreographers, and a contest tee.
  • 4. Must purchase any personal items if needed for a particular routine. (Example: lyrical costume, hair accessories, tights and/or footwear).
  • 5. Dancers must have a signed consent audition form on file before auditions begin (due by November 14, 2016). Hard copies will be sent home on Monday, November 7th.


If your daughter wants to compete, she must audition for each contest routine. My audition process is constructive and positive. Any Majestic who wants to compete this season, and attends all required practices and rehearsals, is guaranteed be put in at least one contest routine.


The Majestics will be attending two team competitions this season. This contest is mandatory for any Majestic who makes a contest routine:


  • Danceline Central Texas Regional * Feb. 11, 2017 (all day Saturday event) @ Liberty Hill High School
  • Austin Jr./Sr. Dance Classic * Feb. 25, 2017 (all day Saturday event) @ Vandegrift High School

What If....

One commonly asked question is "what will my daughter do if she chooses NOT to participate during contest season?" :


Any Majestic who chooses not to compete will still be expected to dress out, stretch and dance during the Majestics period every day. She is still part of the team. She is still included in all team activities and is invited to attend the competitions with the Majestics, to cheer them on. She will NOT be required to attend before or after school practices. She will NOT be required to attend Saturday rehearsal. She is still expected to honor the Majestic handbook rules and demerit system.
