Unlike the Gregorian calendar, dancers have an agenda of their own. They follow a more scholastic type calendar in which their season begins in the fall. Fall auditions for a dance team are the most cut throat due to the season of dance as a whole coming to a start. Many community teams come from college campuses so it only makes sense to start at the same time school starts. many auditions happen in August and September and some in October for those quarter system schools like many of the Universities of California.
