What is a Touch Team?

A Touch Team is a local Dance Team Family that is part of the Island Touch family and is taught choreographies created by Island Touch choreographers. These teams represents Island Touch locally and regionally at socials and congresses performing under the Island Touch brand. Touch Team directors are not necessarily Island Touch pro team dancers and or instructors, although they can be.

Each Touch Team is run independently by qualified local directors who teach team members the choreographies. There are two seasons per year with two different choreographies. Each location learns the same choreography providing team members with maximized performance opportunities, as there will be team members who know the same choreography all over the world.
