How do I get into Company?
Auditions will be held Saturday May 14th. Dancers will be auditioning in the age bracket they fit into, and then placed in the group deided on by staff. The requirements to get into each group are clearly listed below. If you would like to schedule a private meeting with Miss Alison before or after auditions to discuss placement of your dancer that can be arranged.
How will auditions work?
Dancers will be given numbers as they arrive and register for auditions.
Sr.’s will start with Ballet, then Jazz
We will have outside Guest Instructors to teach the audition class.
Judges score the dancers based on technique, classroom behavior, and performance.
The scores mixed with the instructors reviews will determine the Company for 2016-2017
Dancers will also be asked to write a one page essay on What makes you a good leader and how will youe be a good leader by joining the PAC?
his should be turned in at auditions when registering. It can be typed or hand written.
If I am already in a Company class will I automatically be in Company?
There are NO guarantees! As long as you come to class and try your best, you have a great shot! There are limited spaces for each line and there will be cuts made this year.
