BYU Dancesport Summer 2017

In order to improve technical skills and build team unity, all dancers are required to participate in the BYU Youth Summer DanceSport Training program. Open competitors are required to enroll at least 1 Competitors Camp, but both are recommended. Syllabus level competitors should enroll in the Summer Technique class. 

To participate in this program, you must first audition and be cleared by the director.
