    *NOTE: Audition ages are JUST to split groups and give dancers space. This does NOT indicate the team where your dancer will participate next season. For example, a common question we are asked - "My dancer will be 16 by August, should they dance with the 16 & up?". Our answer would be no because we are simply trying to evenly split the groups for auditions.
