-The audition will be broken up into 3 sections: Ballet, Tap and Jazz. Students will begin with ballet barre, then learn a combination that will be performed in groups. Students may also be asked to perform some skills across the room with a partner. The same will be repeated in tap and jazz. The audition is for all students. If your dancer is not experienced in one of the three genres, that is ok! We just ask that they try their best and have fun!
-What to Wear: Leotard and tights. Dancers may bring a ballet skirt for ballet and shorts for jazz and tap. Hair MUST be pulled back in a neat bun.
