Dance Team & Boys' Hip Hop

About us


The 19-time national champion Tustin High School Dance Team is made up of two groups: Dance Team and Boys' Hip Hop. The team is dedicated to offer its dancers more than just another sport; it aims to present to the participants a unique opportunity to combine athleticism and aestheticism through dance expression. As a dancer on the team, the girls and boys learn various styles of dance, such as jazz, lyrical, contemporary, hip hop, and character; as well as conditioning, dance technique, and the use of props to prepare them for competitions.

Although its competition season is in the spring, the team is busy year round. The dancers go through a strenuous six-week conditioning period during the summer to prepare for the coming year. When school starts, they “hit the ground dancing” with performances at football games and school assemblies. At competitions, the girls and boys get the chance to showcase their hard work learning various routines categorized by the style of the dance.

The THS Dance Team strives to bring additional values to the team by actively looking for opportunities for the dancers to be involved in the community. They regularly appear in the Tustin Tiller Days parade, and provide entertainment by performing at elementary schools, as well as local charity and social events.

Our team is 100% self-funded through grants, donations, business sponsorships, and fundraising. Please refer to our Contact page for further information regarding donations and sponsorship.
