What to wear for your audition

Please wear a plain black sleeveless leotard, with either plain black footless tights or convertible pink ballet tights. Dance shorts may be worn over the tights. Hair should be tied back neatly either in a pony-tail or bun. Shoes are not required.

What you will do

You will participate in a group class that will give you an opportunity to demonstrate your posture, placement, coordination, body control, musicality, and your ability to learn and accurately demonstrate movement phrases. The class will focus on jazz dance technique, with some elements of basic ballet technique. Previous experience in classical ballet is not a pre-requisite. You are not required to pre-prepare a dance sequence of your own. You should arrive for your audition at least 15 minutes prior to the class time, and sign in at the reception desk of the school. You will be notified of the outcome of your audition within 10-14 days. It is not possible to receive feedback after the audition, and unfortunately parents are not able to view the audition.
