Song Pom Dance Team
Tryouts for the 23-24 School Year
The Wilcox Varsity Song Pom/Dance team is happy to announce in-person tryouts for the 2023-2024 season. The team performs at all football games, home basketball games, rallies and many other school and community events. The styles of dance include Pom, Hip Hop and Jazz. The team attends USA spirt camp every summer and has many team building and bonding events throughout the year. Please contact Laura Akin with any questions.
Please attend our 4 day clinic from 4/24 through 4/27. You will learn everything you need to know for tryouts on 4/28. Clinics and tryouts begin right after school and end at 6:00 p.m. Please wear comfortable clothes to dance in and bring jazz shoes or socks.
What is Song Pom?
Song Pom is a mixture of using Song Pom technique, Jazz and Hip Hop with Pom Pons to entertain our audiences throughout the majority of our routines. (Yes, they really are called Pom Pons!) :D
Though we are often called "Dance Team", we truly are a Song Pom team in our performance style.
We hope you enjoy our performances as much as we enjoy performing them for you!
We Are Self-Funded!
We are a year round program and do not receive any funding from the Santa Clara Unified School District or Wilcox HS besides paying a stipend for our coach in the Fall and in the Spring. We rely completely on donations of funds from families and the companies that allow us to hold fundraisers at their restaurants so we can go to training camp each summer, pay for uniform components like poms, warm-ups, etc.
If you are interested in making a donation to the song pom team, please make checks payable to Wilcox HS and write Dance Team in the memo section. Please also let the coach Laura Akin know if you are doing this so she can make sure the funds made it to the correct account.
Thank you so much for your support!
