- Bring tap and/or pointe shoes to auditions if interested in those styles!

*****Watch choreographer/piece bios online to familiarize yourself with the showcase pieces to rank your preferences at auditions. There will be no formal choreographer introductions at auditions this year. Videos are posted here.



​At auditions, each dancer will be expected to rank all dances that they are interested in (we encourage you to rank as many dances as you can!) in their order of interest and submit a ranking form AT CHECK IN.
