Diamond Dance Team: Two Schools One Heartbeat
The Diamond Dance Team is a combined dance team of the dance teams at Meridian and Mattson Middle Schools. The Diamonds will be moving towards two separate teams over the next year. Both Meridian and Mattson Dance Teams consist of 7th and 8th grade dancers from their respective schools. Our dancers range in experience from true beginners to 5+ years of dance experience. Dancers do not need to have dance ability to tryout and join either team, just a love of dance and a willingness to work hard and learn to dance.
The Meridian and Mattson Dance Teams typically have their tryouts in May each year. Over the summer, dancers attend camps and practice together to learn routines for the fall. The teams perform at pep assemblies throughout the year, football games, boys' basketball games, and girls' basketball games. Dancers also tryout for competition routines to compete with other middle schools during the Dance/Drill competition season from December through the end of February. These dance teams are award winning competitive teams and are known in the dance community for their technique and showmanship.
Virtual parent information meetings and virtual tryouts are coming soon. For more information about the Meridian and Mattson MS Dance Teams, please contact Coach Lori at firstname.lastname@example.org.
The Diamond Booster Club, a 501(c)3 nonprofit, supports the team and helps coordinate events and fundraisers. Check out the booster page for related information.
