Tuesday, July 11 – Practice Practice Practice
Your technique will improve while you focus on learning the choreography from Day 1.
Wednesday, July 12 – Adding Stage Prescence
You must learn how to stand out in any audition, but dance auditions are the most difficult! Add performance to the learned choreography to practice being noticed in a good way in the dance line.
Thursday, July 13 – What to Expect from a Rehearsal Process
You will find the rehearsal process to be just as important as the auditions! Get used to taking direction as you continue working on the choreography you learned earlier in the week.
Friday, July 14 – Putting it All Together
Finally, you will use the skills you learn throughout the week to perform the choreography for the group and practice your auditioning skills one last time.
You should wear comfortable clothing each day that does not restrict movement. Ballet, jazz, or gymnastic shoes are preferred but flexible tennis shoes are acceptable. Long hair should be pulled back away from the face and off of the neck.
Some previous dance experience is recommended but not required.
