Dance Studio M, Solon

BEFORE AUDITIONS, YOU MUST:

-Pre-register online - time preferences will be assigned based on order of registration. Each group is capped at 30 people maximum!

-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 will be posted by Aug 1.

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


​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. Do NOT rank any dances whose rehearsals you cannot attend. There is a 3 dance max/dancer. Casting will be announced by the following week! We will do our best to cast everyone in at least one piece.
