Open Registration to Join the Belles Performance Team Going on Now!

The Belles Performance Team is Colorado's premier independent professional dance team. Since 2003, they have been performing nationally for over 1.5 million people and donating over 2000 hours to the community each year. They are a year round performance troupe, their positions are volunteer, with opportunities for compensation, with a focus on community involvement.

The Belles Performance Team no longer holds auditions to join their organization. Several times a year, they hold an open application and interview process to select new and qualified members to the team. Their number one goal is finding professional, outgoing, and beautiful women with a passion for dance and entertainment that will continue to uphold their 1st class reputation in the Colorado community and be committed and personable team members. All levels of dance experience are considered. There are no size/weight requirements for the team, current members are anywhere from a size 4 - size 10, but they must look fit and proportional. There are also no age limits for the team (must be 18 to apply), past members have been as young as 40 years of age.

Their application process is as follows:

1. Entertainment Resume. This should include dance and cheer experience (teams, levels, classes, training, conventions, prep classes, competitions, auditions, dance styles and skills currently able to demonstrate), community service, and any promotions and/or pageant experience. Please also include personal information such as height, weight, clothing sizes (numeric and alphabetic - size 8 medium top), and measurements (fullest part of bust, waist at belly button, hip fullest part of bottom).

2. Cover Letter. Why should you be considered for a BPT dancer position? What do they need to know about you, your life, your goals? Why will you make a great community representative of their organization? Similar to a cover letter for a job.

3. Current headshot and full body photograph. Please be smiling in the headshot, hair down and done, in what you consider to be performance level makeup and the full body should have you in a maximum of a sports bra top and 3 inch inseam shorts. You do not need to submit a swimwear shot, but they do need to see your physique as they have many uniforms that reveal some part of the body (midriff, legs, etc.) at a time. These do not have to be professional but should be of good digital quality and clarity and are non-returnable.

Since they have moved the format of our program to non-audition status, they must ensure they have an amazing group of ladies that work well together as a team with a common goal of upholding their traditions and providing top-notch entertainment in the community. Their focus is on recruiting the most friendly and dedicated of women, not necessarily the most talented of dancers...because they have a proven track record of teaching dance to over 250 women in the past 5 years. They plan to only move forward with women interested in continuing the classy and approachable image the Belles are best known in the community for.

You can email these items to or mail them to: The Belles Performance Team, PO Box 1022, Castle Rock, CO 80104.

Once the complete application has been submitted, materials will be reviewed and you will be contacted for a face to face interview. After the interview, an invitation to join the organization may be extended to applicants. To apply does not guarantee an invitation to join. It is recommended that applications are received by January 9, 2009.

All applicants will receive:

1) 12 day spa pass to Planet Beach Contempo Spa, official tanning and skincare wellness partner of the BPT
2) 7 day fitness pass to 24 Hour Fitness, official training and fitness partner of the BPT
3) 20% off pass to Juno Salon, official hairstylist of the BPT
