Team and Hip Hop Troupe Placement Auditions
June 7 @ 4:30 pm - 8:30 pm
The goal of our Performance Teams and Hip Hop Troupes is to provide outside performance opportunities for dancers in order to further their dance education and performance skills, as well as supporting our community. It also allows students to spend more time in the studio working on technique and performance quality. All Team members must be enrolled in a ballet and jazz class(Workshop classes for ages 10 and up) and all Troupe members must be enrolled in a hip hop class.
On Thursday, June 7th, we are holding placement auditions for all dancers wanting to join Team and/or Troupe next year. This will help us to place dancers on the team that will allow them the most growth. Dancers will be critiqued on performance skills and proper technique, as well as their dance etiquette throughout the year. This includes but is not limited to- listening skills, behavior, response to constructive criticism, and work ethic. It is recommended (but not required) dancers have at least two years experience in ballet for Team (except Minis and Squirts) and at least two years of hip hop for Troupe to be considered for placement.
*If you can not attend this audition, you must let us know ASAP so we can schedule an alternative time for your audition.
Audition times are listed below by age group. Dancers should attend the age group they will be by September. Minis who are 5 by January are still invited to attend the meeting. If your dance is at the top of his/her age group, be prepared that he/she may be asked to stay and audition with the next age group up. Please note that audition groups are split into smaller age groups than Teams/Troupes and therefore the group you audition with does not mean that is the group you will be on Team/Troupe with. Dancers will receive placements in the few days following Recital.
