SoulDeevas' Remote Dance Team
The SoulDeevas' Remote Dance Team (RDT) includes young ladies in New Jersey and New York City (ages 9 to 18).
The concept for RDT was birthed from having to create activities for youth who were forced to quarantine because of the pandemic. Last year, the girls found the program so enjoyable that we decided to make it an official team this year.
RDT will meet on Thursdays from 7pm to 8pm over Zoom until early March. At that time, they will add an in-person practice on Saturdays (11am to 1pm in NJ); (1pm to 3pm in NY) where they will prepare for a full calendar of performances which begin in April and May.
The girls will be exposed to different genres of dance including hip-hop, ballet, lyrical, jazz, African, Reggaeton/Soca, Salsa and more. Families should prepare to carve out a space in their home where the dancer can learn the moves and participate with a minimum of distractions.
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.
An application will be required and will be emailed or given to families on their first day. There is a registration fee of $20. The first practice day is FREE. Thereafter, weekly dues are $5 per dancer and the team will participate in fundraisers for the organization's general overhead (which includes space rental, supplies, etc.). Dues are payable via Zelle (HerreraHome05@gmail.com), CashApp ($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).
Please note - if you are invited to a tryout and do not show up, or if you try to participate without paying you will be barred from registering from ALL SoulPhamm and affiliate programs in the future. If you do not pay your dues, you will be immediately cut from the team. Dues are due even when you miss a practice.
