SoulDeevas' Majorette Team
The SoulDeevas' Majorette Program includes young ladies between the ages of 5 and 30. The teams are based in New Jersey (location to be determined) and New York City (location to be determined). The BabySoul (ages 5 to 7) and Collegiate Teams (ages 19 to 30) are based only in New York. Divisions for each state include Junior Majorettes (ages 8 to 12) and Senior Majorettes (ages 13 to 18).
Our next season is from August 1, 2021 to June 30, 2022.
Hip-Hop Majorette dancing is relatively new to the Northeast region, but is becoming rapidly popular. It consists of high-energy, synchronized, rhythmic dance moves that draw from modern dance, jazz, ballet, gymnastics, Salsa, stepping and of course, hip-hop dance. Members of our team should expect to be exposed to each of these genres over the course of their careers with our team.
The SoulDeevas 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 majorette dance (both hip-hop and HBCU style), they will also learn social etiquette and sportsmanship and how pursuit of excellence will help their higher educational pursuits and open up opportunities for long-term careers.
The team requires discipline and a willingness to learn and adapt. It will demand the utmost in respect from the dancers, coaches and staff alike. The young ladies 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 teams are beginner friendly. Dance experience in any genre is required for the Collegiate Team (ages 19 to 30). The roster in each state, each division is generally comprised of twelve girls.
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 (email@example.com) 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 dancer 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.
