Audition and interview

Join us for a short class so we can meet your dancer and their family. This audition session is free of cost. Dancers will learn a short dance routine to show us their technique, tricks and skills and performance quality. This will help the teachers when placing them on a team, additional selected dances, and solos, duets, trios. 

Please fill out the form and register for one of our audition times. Our staff will contact your family for a short interview about goals for competition team and answer any questions you may have. Private auditions are available if your dancer would feel more comfortable with one-on-one attention or if they cannot attend June 26 or July 24.
