The process to tryout for the 2020-2021 Piper High School Dance Team began around mid April, concluding on Saturday, April 26. How could that happen, with stay-at-home orders in place? Virtually.
Candidates joined a Google Classroom made specifically for dance team tryouts. In the online classroom, candidates had access to information, such as the dance team rules and regulations, and they were able to complete forms needed to proceed with trying out. Tryout routines were posted, giving candidates one week to watch and learn the routines, make a video of themselves, and post their video to the classroom. Three Zoom meetings were held throughout the process to discuss any questions and concerns, as well as just to get to know one another. Judges began their process of watching and judging videos on April 25, and a new team was announced to the candidates on April 26.
