Junior Jumpstart

NO WALK-UP CAMPERS | Pre-Registration ONLY

The Ohio State Dance Team is excited to offer a Junior Jumpstart to allow the class of 2023 the opportunity to showcase their ability in a smaller setting. Dancers will have the opportunity to demonstrate combinations and advanced technical elements. Dancers will also have an opportunity to interact with current team members and coaching staff, as well as learn more about the Ohio State University Dance Team. This event will serve as a key pipeline in recruiting for the 2023-2024 incoming class of the OSUDT.

Due to COVID protocols:
No walk-up campers.
Staff and visitors to all Ohio State campuses are required to wear masks indoors, regardless of their vaccination status. Masks continue to be required outdoors for unvaccinated individuals when they cannot maintain physical distancing. Vaccinated people are not required to mask outdoors. Exception during intense physical activity.
Campers will be put into smaller cohorts during camp.
