Dance Production:This class is designed for students who are interested in auditioning for the award-winning Calicos Dance Team. Dance production is an excellent starting point for anyone who has a great attitude and strong work ethic that desires a position on this well respected high school team. However, this class does not guarantee a place in the Calicos Dance Team. A strict curriculum will be followed and if a dance production member works hard, her chances are greater at being selected during auditions in December. Dance production is not required for audition purposes.Dance 1-4:Dance is an elective course open to all students at Corsicana High School. This class will fulfill a P.E. credit in the fall and a fine arts credit in the spring. No previous dance experience is required for Dance 1. Students who enroll in this course have very high expectations to be hard-working, responsible, and have a willingness to try new things. The purpose of this course is to give students of varying dance abilities and experience the opportunity to enrich thei kinesthetic awareness by learning several genres of dance (ballet, jazz, hip-hop, modern, social and cultural dance) as well as learning the anatomy of the human body, basic fitness principles, the history of dance, dance terminology, choreography, and dance production. There will be an in-school performance at the end of the fall semester. It is required to perform and this will count as 2 major test grades.
Every week, Calicos will audition for field routines to be performed friday night. Calicos will be judged based on their technical skill level, execution of the choreography, facials and energy, and ability to dance the Calico style.
If a team member is late or absent the morning of the audition (tues), she will forfeit her ability to audition for that week's performance unless it is excused by the director.
If a Calico is late after the audition (wed-fri), she forfeits her spot in that week's performance.
You will still attend the game and participate in Victory Line and Stand routines.
All calico practices begin at 7:30am unless otherwise noted by the director. If a calico is late to practice, she will be eliminated from that week's performance. Please see the posted calendars in the 'file' section of this website.
