Every year, high school dance team seniors are invited to audition for the DDCA All-State Team, a very high honor and long-standing tradition among Oregon dance teams. The auditions are held in January, usually during the Martin Luther King, Jr holiday weekend. Dancers are judged according to their OSAA Classification, and three separate All-State Teams are selected (1A-4A, 5A and 6A All-State Teams). There were 14 dancers selected in the 5A division.
