Company Auditions 2019!
Admittance to the company is by audition only. Guest judges adjudicate the audition and make placement decisions. Placement is determined by audition performance, overall technique, stage presence, ability to apply corrections, and ability to grasp choreography. Placement decisions can also include such factors as average age, ability, and the overall look of each group (WE DO NOT PLACE DANCERS BASED ON AGE ONLY!)
Dancers interested in auditioning must register online prior to the audition date. Dancers should arrive 15 to 30 minutes prior to their audition time in order to receive their audition number and to properly stretch. Students registering with the studio after auditions or after the dance season has started may be allowed to audition privately with the Artistic Director.
Audition fee is $25 per dancer. No one will be allowed to audition without submitting an audition form and audition fee.
A neat appearance is recommended for auditions. Dancers should wear form fitting dance wear with neat hair, pulled away from their face, and light, natural makeup. Dancers should bring all styles of dance shoes for the audition to be well prepared. While we realize each dancer has particular strengths and favorite dance styles, we need to see everyone try all forms of dance during the auditions. Instructors will be there to teach the groups combos for each style of dance.
Company auditions are closed! No spectators will be allowed in the audition room or beyond the lobby area, and television monitors will not be on for viewing.
