AUDITION PACKET:

OUR MISSION:

PADlock Dance Crew is geared towards dancers ages 6 and up. Our mission is to create a crew that is welcoming and safe to all dancers. A place where they will learn to attach and detach, adaptable like a Padlock, their skills onto any situation inside and outside of dance. We value not only community involvement through performance and volunteer work, but also through expanding their knowledge and appreciation of hip hop. We want to open these dancers to the world of dance outside our studio doors and let them experience classes with master teachers as well as a chance to compete with their crew.
