BEFORE AUDITIONS, YOU MUST:

-Pre-register online by January 27, 5pm - time preferences will be assigned based on order of registration. Each group is capped at 40 people maximum!

-Watch choreographer/piece bios online to familiarize yourself with the showcase pieces to rank your preferences at auditions. Video will be posted by Jan 13. There will be no formal choreographer introductions at auditions this year.

​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.
