Together we WORK. Together we WIN.

While the parade team (HoneyBees) is a "walk-on" squad, meaning that the only requirement for joining is a basic registration process, dancers that desire to compete on BusyBodies competition teams are required to tryout. Placement on the team is not guaranteed. Candidates meet basic criteria and pay tryout fees to be considered for the competition team, and maintain higher standards than other dancers in the company to secure their spots on the team. At tryouts, the goal is not perfection, but POTENTIAL. 

The dancers in the competition program compete at all regularly scheduled competitions in and outside of the state of Louisiana. They are committed to training, performing and competing. Competition dancers train in Technique classes biweekly on Thursday nights and an additional weekly Battle Squad Choreography class. They are allowed to perform on school dance and/or cheer teams as long as it does not interfere with BusyBodies’ schedule.





Tryout attire: solid black dancewear, jazz shoes, hair out of face and off of neck

Note: You MUST reserve your spot at tryouts by emailing [email protected] prior to the date of tryouts. Email the dancer's name, age, medical conditions, and the dancing school that she is coming from.

*COMPETITIVE DANCERS (EXCEPT MINIS) TRAVEL IN AND OUT OF STATE. Though it is not required of the parents to travel, competitive dancers are expected to travel. No exceptions! 

$150 is the Battle Uniform Fee, and it’s due 90 days after receiving acceptance letter. 

Note: There are competitions right now, but for health concerns, BusyBodies will resume competing only AFTER the CDC recommends crowds in tight places. Until then, we will continue to train and prep for the competitions to come.
