WATERLOO — Hawkeye Community College will hold tryouts for the RedTail Dance Team April 21 beginning at 10 a.m. in the Health Education and Services Center.
The co-ed competitive team performs during area events and competes at the Iowa State Dance Team Association statewide contest. Head coach is Meghan Reilly, who brings more than 25 years of dance experience to the RedTail program.
Reilly is classically trained in ballet, tap, jazz, modern and hip-hop dance and most recently performed professionally at the Walt Disney World Resort in Orlando, Fla. Her work at Disney included performances in the Festival of Fantasy Parade, the Main Street Electrical Parade, Mickey’s Boo-to-You Halloween Parade, and the Celebrate the Season Christmas Castle, among others.
An optional pre-audition clinic will be held April 20 at 7 p.m. at the Health Education and Services Center. The clinic will operate as an informal dance class, with the opportunity to get a feel for different style elements and ask questions.
