Complex's dance studio on the building's lower level and participants must bring two letters of recommendation, a VU class schedule and a head-and-shoulders photo. Required attire includes jazz shoes, tights or leggings and a tanktop. Hair must be contained in a proper manner.

Prospective dance team members must attend two of the three workshops that will be held throughout the summer. Workshop dates and times will be posted and e-mailed by May 31. The workshops will teach jazz and hip-hop routines that will be performed at the tryouts.

The Vincennes University Athletic Department hosts Play4Kay and raises donations for the Kay Yow Cancer Fund annually. VU Women’s Basketball Coach and Athletic Director Harry Meeks has a special connection to the late Yow, who was the longtime coach at North Carolina State. He had the pleasure of meeting her while he was an assistant coach at Western Carolina University. This left a lasting impression on him and made this cause important to him and the Trailblazers.
