Purpose of the Audition?
The purpose of the audition is to assess the dancers abilities and place them with the appropriate group. Some dancers who audition for the Shooting Star company will be recommended for the Rising Star company while they gain more experience. Everyone is welcome to join the Rising Star company! Auditions will also help us know the level of the dancers as we start thinking about dances and choreographing this summer.
Rising Star Audition
We will learn a short combination and dancers will be split into groups to perform the combination for the “judges.” (Miss Jill, Miss Jamie and Miss Katie) Dancers will be put into several different groups and asked to perform many times. Auditions will be videotaped.
Yes, all dancers must attend the Rising Star audition before we begin the Shooting Star audition.
Shooting Star Audition
We will learn challenging combinations to include ballet, contemporary, jazz and musical theatre. Students will perform in many different groups as we assess each different style we are considering. Auditions will be videotaped.
Those wishing to audition for tap will stay for a short tap combination.
Audition Prep Classes
Audition Prep Classes mimic the Leaps and Turns class that Shooting Star company members are required to take during the year. It is meant to help students who plan to audition for the Shooting Star company but anyone could benefit from them and anyone is welcome to attend. Classes are $10 each if you sign up ahead of time, $15 at the door.
