dance auditions

season 3 auditions + what to expect

Please keep in mind, you must be available Sat Dec 8 for our 3pm & 7pm showcases, as well as (tentatively) the evenings of Thurs Dec 6 & Fri Dec 7 for mandatory dress/tech rehearsals

Sunday August 26, 2018

Green Rehearsal Hall, Playhouse Square

​Pre-registration is REQUIRED by Aug 25, 8pm

Registration 12:15pm-1:00pm: sign-in, pay your $35 (for 1 piece) or $50 (for 2-3 pieces) tuition if you haven't pre-paid, start stretching, and meeting your new dance family!

Choreographer introductions 1:00pm: Dancers will have an opportunity for dancers to preview all the dances in this season before selecting which pieces they would like to audition for. Each choreographer will introduce themselves and their vision for their piece, then they will show a segment of their choreography to allow dancers to better understand each choreographer's style and decide whether or not they would like to rank that particular dance.

Warm-up 2:00pm: ​Group warm-up
Beginner-Intermediate Auditions 2:30pm: Dancers will be taught a shorter movement/dance combination. Beginner-Intermediate dancers can leave once this portion is done around 3pm. 

Int-Advanced/Professional Auditions 3:00pm: Dancers will learn 2 longer combos, one in a hip hop/jazz funk style, one in a contemporary/modern style. If you choose to audition as an int/adv dancer, be aware combos will be taught QUICKLY and you will be asked to improv after each combo.

Rankings 4:00pm: 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.
