What is SPT, Inc?

Shuffles Performance Team, Incorporated is our non-profit competitive traveling group!  


It is open to ages 7-18 that have had at least 2 years of dance experience! It requires an audition and a 2-session commitment (Fall & Spring session).

Why is a non-profit so important?

Dance is expensive, so a non-profit opens up more opportunities for fundraisers, grants & donations! Some things we currently do that are an easy way to earn money to help with expenses:

-sell business ads for recital programs
-vendor & craft fair in December
- sell Ollie's Flower Cards
-sell beverages at the Iola Car Show
-food & beverage booth at Lambeau Field!!!
-indoor rummage sale
-sell Kwik Trip carwash cards

Where does the team perform?

Venues & places change from year-to-year, but a few places we have performed at are:


-Wausau, Appleton, Green Bay, Madison, Chicago, Minneapolis dance competitions

-Taste of Shawano

-area nursing homes

-area fundraisers

-Six Flags, Great America (sometimes)

-option to dance in Nashville in 2022!!!!

When are auditions?

Auditions are held in the summer before fall session begins. We will be holding our first one on Tuesday, June 15th at 6:30pm (after parade practice)...bring all of your shoes! If you can't make it, another one will be held later in the summer ;)

Just because you audition, doesn't mean you have to accept the invitation to join the teams....it's always good to audition for EVERYTHING & then decide exactly what you would like to do. Audition experience will ALWAYS help your dancer out down the road!

We will have a parent/ dancer informational meeting scheduled at a later date to go over costs, potential competition dates, fundraisers, etc.
