Quick Audition Tips
Dancers and parents need to complete the Dancer Audition Form prior to auditioning. It is important that you have read through the general information & accurately select the maximum number of routines we can place you in.
Also, be sure to sign-up for your specific audition time (divided by levels) through SignUp.com to officially reserve your placement spot. The SignUp link to register is located on the website on the Audition Form page.
Dancers should bring (1) small bag with a screw-top water bottle and will only need Jazz & Ballet shoes for the audition.
Dancers should arrive already dressed in their appropriate class level Leotard & Tights with cover-ups over their base. Hair should be pulled back and off the face. (Buns or braids are preferred)
DURING THE AUDITION...
Keep your number pinned to the front of your leotard
You will NOT have to prepare any choreography in advance. All material will be shown during the audition.
Stay focused and do not talk to other dancers.
Smile the whole time - be proud. Shine!
Be prepared to show off any special skills. There will be a 'Free Pass' section where you'll have the opportunity to showcase any tricks or tumbling skills.
Make sure when completing any pass or combo to hold any poses and allow the judges time to see your number.
