No pre-registration required. If you have a resume and photo, feel free to bring them, but don't make any special effort to produce these things especially for this Audition. We mostly just want to see you dance.
We won't teach a warm-up, so feel free to come early to warm yourself up. All dancers should be ready to dance at 1:00pm. The Audition will go like this:
1. We'll teach an adagio combination and make cuts right afterwards.
2. We'll teach a jump combination and make cuts right afterwards.
3. About 8-12 dancers will learn Company repertory.
Decisions will be made by Friday, September 22, 2017. You'll be notified by phone and/or email.
Some dancers may be invited to participate in our Associate Dancer program, which allows qualified advanced dancers to take Company Class for free and to attend rehearsals to learn Company repertory. Associate Dancers are often invited to perform with the Company, and many current Company Dancers are former Associate Dancers.
