The Dynamite Dance Team

Founded over ten years ago, the Dynamite Dance Team is a performance group dedicated to community outreach and fundraising. The “dynamic” team consists of 150 dancers ages 8 to 10 and Gotta Dance students enrolled in Amethyst through Aqua levels audition for this team in March. The team builds a strong sense of camaraderie and belonging among all of the dancers.

We’ll dance safely this summer whether we will have to wear masks and social distance or not! Gotta Dance follows legal guidelines for building capacity, mask-wearing, social distancing and follows CDC, state, and local health department guidelines in order to assure the health and safety of our community. 

The Dynamite Dance Teams Perform At Exciting Locations

Each year Dynamite Dance Team participates in exciting events and performance opportunities. Two years ago the team performed at the NJ Festival of Ballooning in Branchburg, NJ, and at the Somerset Patriots Stadium in Somerset, NJ. In past years they have also graced stages at The Turtle Back Zoo, Medieval Times, Hershey Park, Dorney Park, Ellis Island, the USS Intrepid, and the Statue of Liberty. By participating in larger events the team, as a result, reaches even bigger audiences across the Tri-State Area.
