• DDR Tryouts
• “We will be having DDR auditions on January 22 from 6-8pm right after office hours. For those of you that don’t know what DDR is, it is a once a year competition at UC Davis that pits all the dance teams on campus against each other. There are 2 categories: modern and traditional, and we participate in the traditional category. Many of you may feel as if you’re not good enough to audition; however, we will be taking into account your rate of improvement, creativity, and dedication level. There is no need to worry about not having been on a bench before because we will be able to teach you what you need to know for your routine! Also you do not need to come to auditions with a pair as we will be able to pair all of ya’ll up. This is an extremely rare opportunity that enables you to bring your lion dancing to an entirely new level. Once again, I encourage all of you to try out for DDR and you will be amazed by how rewarding the entire experience is.” – Will
