What to do:
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 properly stretch. Student should check in at the front desk to receive an number which should be worn the entire audition. Dancer should remember they are being observed from the minute the enter the studio until the moment they leave - this is a time to act with professionalism as attitude and ability to follow directions will affect placement results.
What to wear:
For company auditions, dancers should wear form fitting and professional dance wear (leotard, dance shorts/leggings). For crew auditions, dancers may wear tank tops/sports bras, sweatpants, etc. to show off their personalities. Hair must be pulled away from their face in a clean bun or low ponytail. Dancers should bring all styles of dance shoes for the audition to be well prepared (ballet/pointe, tap, jazz, & contemporary for company auditions, tennis shoes for crew auditions).
What to expect:
All auditions are closed to the public! No spectators will be allowed in the audition room or beyond the lobby area.
Television monitors will not be on for viewing. Instructors will be unavailable for questioning outside of the designated parent meetings in order to keep the auditions running smoothly and on time. Results will be posted online the Saturday following auditions (May 30th, 2020). Any questions or concerns related to placements will not be answered until the following Monday in order to respect the decisions of our staff and allow time for the results to process. Once placements are posted, dancers must turn in their company contracts and intensive fees by June 6th in order to reserve their spot in company and crew.
