The finalists are required to complete a squat challenge as boot camp begins in the Magic Dancer Audition process.
Earning a spot on the dance team is challenging and requires being physically fit.
After squats, it's onto mountain climbers.
These ladies can expect their triceps to be very sore for the next few days.
These boot camp challenges are designed to assess whether the dancers can handle all of the rigorous training that comes along with being on the team.
Although not everyone will earn a spot on the team, all of the finalists still encourage and motivate each other during this grueling process.
Lunges will help these finalists build stronger muscles in their hamstrings and quadriceps.
It's important to never forget about abs!
While dance ability and appearance are two of the categories that will be used to evaluate the finalists, conditioning and fitness are important as well.
The finalists flex their muscles to conclude the first day of boot camp.

The finalists are required to complete the Group Kick challenge.
Group Kick intends to increase full body strength and improves overall conditioning.
After an exhausting session, the finalists finally get a break.
Ab exercises are often the most challenging ones.
But, these finalists will do whatever it takes for a spot on the team.
They have to ignore the temptation to stop and focus on their goal of making the team.
The dancers work on the hip-hop choreography for Finals with guest choreographer Julie Johnson and assistant Freedom.
Much of this is in preparation for Friday night when the finalists perform at Amway Center.
I have a feeling they will all do great.
