Interested actors must have attended an initial audition session or submitted an audition video in order to attend the dance audition.

Dance auditions will be held the afternoon of Saturday, March 28. Performers are given the opportunity to select which difficulty level to attend. Please select whichever session you feel will best highlight your abilities and training. But also, don’t be timid! The choreographers will be looking for enthusiasm and willingness to go for it as much as for formal dance training.

  • Session 1:   5:15 – 6:00pm—  This session is targeted at performers with little or beginning dance training. The choreography will be fun, attainable, not particularly physically exerting, and emphasize characterization and stage presence instead of dance steps.
  • Session 2:   6:00 – 6:45pm—  This session is targeted at performers with some dance or musical theater experience. The choreography will be fun, energetic, and provide a fun challenge for less experienced dancers, and an opportunity for more experienced dancers to showcase their skills.

Female Dancers: Please wear comfortable clothing that you can easily move in, and that allows the choreographers to assess your movement and physicality. No jeans. Please wear jazz shoes, jazz sneakers, character shoes, or non-marking sneakers. (character heels are preferred)

Male Dancers: Please wear comfortable clothing that you can easily move in, and that allows the choreographers to assess your movement and physicality. No jeans. Please wear jazz shoes, jazz sneakers, character shoes, or non-marking sneakers.
