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 January. The team builds a strong sense of camaraderie and belonging among all of the dancers.
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.

IMMORTAL PLACEMENT POLICY
We have implemented a placement policy for Immortal Dance Force.
Please remember that dancer must participate in either Nutcracker, Dynamite, Edge or Showstoppers to be eligible for Immortal Dance Force.
Your score from the upcoming Company Auditions on January 11th at RVCC will place you in either ballet, tap, jazz contemporary, or hip-hop Immortal groups. Please Note: In rare cases, a dancer’s score may be high enough for acceptance into Gotta Dance Companies, but may not be high enough in his/her age group to qualify for the particular subject in Immortal Dance Force.
Company Auditions 2020:
Auditions Saturday, January 11th at Raritan Valley Community College (Snow Date: January 12th in RVCC)
Important Note: We hold auditions on one day only and there are no exceptions. If you are unable to audition during your time slot (by level/style) you may audition during a lower level time slot. However, we don’t recommend this as your score will likely be skewed. This will probably cause problems in group and lead role casting because you won’t be adequately compared to your peers.
Dynamite casting is based on:
- Dancers are cast based on their highest class level and their scores in each audition. For example, if your dancer’s highest level is Amethyst, Opal or Aqua then they will be placed in Dynamite.
- Dancers are required to be enrolled in a Broadway class at Gotta Dance in order to audition for Acting & Singing roles.
