Choreographer auditions are held at the beginning of each semester in preparation for our biannual shows. All dancers, both new and returning members of the company, are encouraged to audition choreography.
Choreographers are expected to present their vision for the piece as well as a small section of movement and include any inspiration from the semester's show theme, if applicable.
Dancer auditions are held the weekend after choreographer auditions every semester. All dancers must re-audition every semester, regardless of previous membership in the company.
Styles of dance change per semester, and there is no guarantee for a particular style. Dances of previous semesters and shows can be viewed on our youtube channel.
A Glance at the Audition Process
WHAT TO EXPECT
At dancer auditions, students will be taught a small section of choreography for a particular piece and asked to showcase their skills in the style. All students may audition for as many pieces as they'd like and are free to pick and choose the pieces they audition for that day. If a dancer cannot commit to a specific rehearsal, they may take any audition as a workshop to learn choreography, but we ask that they step out during the actual audition part if you plan on not attending the weekly rehearsal.
WHAT TO WEAR
Dancers may wear whatever is most comfortable for them. Proper dance wear is not required, however, many dancers choose to wear a leotard, T-shirt or tank with leggings or shorts.
At the end of a full day of auditions, dancers are notified by email and on our various social channels of the results for the day. Dancers may only be in up to 3 dances per semester and their own piece, if they are a choreographer. Dancers are required to notify any choreographers within a week if they cannot commit to their piece.
