|TO WHOM IT MAY CONCERN: I AM A PROSPECTIVE STUDENT FOR SPRING OR FALL 2003. I JUST VIEWED YOUR WEBSITE AND HAD A FEW QUESTIONS.|
1. CAN FRESHMEN TRYOUT OR DO YOU HAVE TO HAVE A CERTAIN NUMBER OF COURSE CREDITS AND/ OR G.P.A.?
2. WHAT IF A PERSON CAN PASS WITH ALL THE OTHER MOVEMENTS, BUT CANNOT DO A SPLIT. WILL THEY BE INELIGIBLE TO JOIN?
3. WHAT IS THE MINIMUM & MAXIMUM SIZE YOU CAN BE? MOST OF YOUR PICTURES SHOW AVERAGE SIZED (7-10) FEMALES, BUT NONE BIGGER (11-14) NOR SMALLER (3-6).
4. IS THERE A CERTAIN AGE BRACKET TO BECOME A VENOM DANCER?
5. CAN YOU NOTIFY ME BY E-MAIL OR CONTACT FOR THE GUIDELINE & TRYOUT UPDATES?
|We'd love to answer your questions.|
1. Yes, Freshman can try-out. There is no credit requirement for the squad.
2. Flexibility is a big part of dance. We encourage all to try-out regardless of inabilities to perform certain skills. However, we suggest that interested girls begin preparing their bodies for things such as splits.
3. We do not have a minimum or maximum size. We have had girls in all shapes and sizes. But we do stress physical fitness!
4. We do not have a specific age bracket.
5. It is hard for us to notify everyone of try-out information. I suggest you join the mailing list and check the website for any updates.
Thanks and Good Luck!
|Dear Venom Girlz, I am just now finding out about the squad. I am so
relieved because I didn't' know FAMU had a pom pon squad. I will be
enrolling in the fall of 99 as a freshman. I have several years dance
experience as well as being on a national dance team champion squad 3
years in a row. Now I can only hope I will be blessed with the chance
to audition for you guys. Please alert me of any tryout info. You can
call me at (***)***-**** or e-mail me at the address above.|
peace & blessings
|I'm glad that you've found us. We are in search of people with dance experience on a competitive level. We're not just a pom pon squad, but a "family" too. Good luck in joining our family!!|
|I just recently was accepted at FAMU and I was looking around for some
sort of dance/drill team type activities to try and get involved with
when I get there. And it looks to me like the Venom Dancers are the
perfect way to do that. Hopefully I get to try out and maybe even make
it and become a member of a great dance group.|
|Congratulations, Candra, on your acceptance to FAMU. Hopefully, there will be a second congratulations, on your acceptance into the Venom Dancers.|
|Thanks for all the info on FAMU Venom girlz. My bestfriend and I will be
attending FAMU next year and we have been searching for info on you guys
forever, but not just for us , but for all the girls on our school's
cheerleading and dance teams. Thanks A Lot!|
|Thank you, LaQuanda, for your interest in Venom Dancers. We will be posting information on spring and fall try-outs pretty soon. Check back with us in the near future. We'll see you this fall...good luck!|
|I will be an incoming freshman this fall. I am interested in becoming
a member of the Venom Dancers. I have spoken with Mr. Moran and left
messages for some to contact me. Please advise when try-out are
scheduled for the fall and spring. You can obtain any additional
information on me by contacting Mr. Moran or calling me at (***)
***-****. I look forward to hearing from someone soon.|
