What is SPT, Inc?

Shuffles Performance Team, Inc. is our non-profit competitive traveling team!

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 (2024 Fall & 2025 Spring session).

 

We do 2 - 4 competitions, community performances & this team had the opportunity to perform in New York this summer!

.

What is the Shuffles Production/ Parade Team?

 

This team is a blast from the past! It is open to all dancers ages 7-18 who want to see what competition is like & who just like to perform!

This class DOES require Fall & Spring commitment & one competition and 3-4 parades. This class does NOT require an audition.

 

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

-vendor & craft fair in December

- sell Ollie's Flower Cards

-sell beverages at the Iola Car Show & other events

-food & beverage booth at Lambeau Field!!! 

- sell beverages at Sundrop Dayz

-indoor rummage sale

-sell Kwik Trip carwash cards

-parade sponsors

-candy sales

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 New York 2024!!!!

-Bonduel 4th of July parade, Shawano Holiday Stroll, Clintonville Holiday Parade, Embarrass Fun Dayz Parade, Gresham 4th of July

When are auditions?

Auditions are Monday, August 5th, 2023!

-Ages 10 years old and under will be from 4pm to 6pm.

-Ages 11 years old -14 years old will be from 5pm to 7pm.

-Ages 15 years old and up will be from 6pm to 8pm. 

If you can't make it, an alternate audition date is set for August 12th, 2024. This will follow the same schedule as the original audition date. 

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 schedule a parent/ dancer informational meeting  to go over costs, potential competition dates, fundraisers, etc.

Maxx Team Regulations

The "Why" Behind the Regulations

-Each competition team with SPT has their own standards of competencies/skills. These are put in place so the choreographer can easily put skills into their competition dances with confidence that their dancers are ALL able to perform those skills. 

These regulations are subject to change. Team placements are not made SOLELY on these regulations, but are also based on the character of the dancer, chemistry of the team, previous attendance, work ethic, etc. When creating teams, teachers do NOT judge dancers based on disability, injury, or other pre-discussed personal matters. 

Yearly Class Requirements

MINI MAXX

 

-if you're competing in Mini Maxx Tap and/or Hip Hop, you have met the minimum requirement for Fall Session. You will just need to take Rec. Tap and/or Hip Hop during the Spring session. We would like you to take a tumbling class for flexibility, but it's not required.
