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.
