The Ohio State Dance Team is excited to host a Tryout Prep Clinic for high school and college students planning to audition for a college dance team. The clinic will focus on giving dancers exposure to the common technical skills and gameday elements they can expect from any college audition. Additionally, participants will learn a short jazz combo and a portion of the fight song which is adjudicated during the OSUDT Audition Process. The clinic will be lead by the coaching staff, alumni, and current student-athletes and will finish with a Q&A session about the team and the tryout process!
