The audition is composed of three parts:

  • a group class
  • solo choreography (1 minute 30 seconds)
  • a written questionnaire

In the group class, students warm up through barre, floor work, and short combinations across the floor and in center. Styles covered include contemporary ballet, modern, and jazz techniques. 

Each applicant will perform a solo in any style. Students must provide their own music. An auxiliary cord will be available. 

The final component of the audition consists of a short written questionnaire. Students will be asked about their previous training and why they want to become a member of Dance.
