SoulGentz' Hip-Hop Dance/Step Team
The SoulGentz' Hip-Hop Dance/Step Program includes young men between the ages of 12 and 18. The teams are based in New Jersey (location to be determined) and New York City (location to be determined).
Our next season is from August 1, 2021 to June 30, 2022.
The SoulGentz will be registered as a competitive team under the Amateur Athletic Union (AAU), and will be trained to compete on local, regional and national courts. In addition to learning hip-hop dance, they will also learn the history of stepping, social etiquette and sportsmanship and how pursuit of excellence will help their higher educational pursuits and open up opportunities for long-term careers. They will also be exposed to high-visibility events which could include professional individual or team auditions.
The team requires discipline and a willingness to learn and adapt. It will demand the utmost in respect from the team members, coaches and staff alike. The young men will be asked to do things that their peer organizations might not do (no cursing; strict rules around decorum, attendance and punctuality; fitness routine) and it should be understood that they must confirm to all of our rules in order to participate.
Slots on the team are secured via tryouts and the team is beginner friendly. The roster in each state is generally comprised of twelve young men.
An application must be completed and brought on registration day as well as a non-refundable registration fee of $30 (either a money order payable to SoulPhamm Inc. or via CashApp ($soulphamm), Venmo (@soulphamm) or PayPal (firstname.lastname@example.org) only). Team members will be responsible for the purchase of their official team uniform (generally $100-$150) and should be prepared to be fully dressed by the end of September. Weekly dues are $25 per participant and the team will participate in fundraisers for the organization's general overhead (which includes space rental, supplies, etc.). A physical (under one year old) is required within the first month of practice.
