The Dynamite Dance Team

Founded over ten years ago, the Dynamite Dance Team is a performance group dedicated to community outreach and fundraising. The “dynamic” team consists of 150 dancers ages 8 to 10 and Gotta Dance students enrolled in Amethyst through Aqua levels audition for this team in January. The team builds a strong sense of camaraderie and belonging among all of the dancers.

The Dynamite Dance Teams Perform At Exciting Locations

Each year Dynamite Dance Team participates in exciting events and performance opportunities. Two years ago the team performed at the NJ Festival of Ballooning in Branchburg, NJ and at the Somerset Patriots Stadium in Somerset, NJ. In past years they have also graced stages at The Turtle Back Zoo, Medieval Times, Hershey Park, Dorney Park, Ellis Island, the USS Intrepid, and the Statue of Liberty. By participating in larger events the team, as a result, reaches even bigger audiences across the Tri-State Area.

IMMORTAL PLACEMENT POLICY
Immortal Dance Force has a placement policy. Your score from Company Auditions in January will place you in either ballet, tap, jazz contemporary, or hip-hop Immortal groups. Please Note:  In rare cases, a dancer’s score may be high enough for acceptance into Gotta Dance Companies, but may not be high enough in his/her age group to qualify for the particular subject in Immortal Dance Force.

To those who performed in the Nutcracker 2018: Your audition score and placement in the Moscow Ballet’s Nutcracker also makes you eligible for placement and participation in Immortal Ballet for the 2019 season.
