Inspire Dance Company Auditions

2020-2021

Auditions - August 16th

Parent Meeting -  Monday, July 27th @ 7:00 pm

RSVP for the Parent Meeting @ inspire.admin.news@gmail.com

On Sunday, August 16th we will be hosting auditions for placement on our Company and Performing teams. 

Auditions will take place during the day in four different sessions depending upon age and team desired. 

Prior to the audition, we will host a parent meeting to share information about the requirements and fees that will be involved.  

This is your opportunity to ask questions and familiarize yourself with our program 

 

The cost to audition is $20.00.

 

  • Pre-registration is preferred.  Registration will begin on Tuesday, July 7th. Click the button above to complete the form.

  • Dancers should report 15 minutes prior to the time designated for the level they are interested in. 

  • Each dancer will receive an audition number that will be used to record scoring and post results.  

  • Dancers may be invited to come back and attend another audition later in the day to determine the best fit for a group. 

  • An invitation to come back does not guarantee a higher position.

  • Dancers may indicate a desire to audition for more than one group upon arrival. The session that a dancer attends will not automatically limit them to a specific group.  Our staff will know how to properly place each dancer and will consult with parents if there are any questions regarding your initial group selection.

  • Acceptance into the Company Program requires participation in 2 weeks of Summer Camp for all advanced company members. 

  • Participation in all 3 weeks of camp is highly recommended for any company level as this is a tremendous opportunity to work with the most experienced and talented group of instructors you will find.  Dancers travel throughout the country for camps of this quality. 

  • 2 Weeks are required for all mini-company levels too

  • Acceptance into any of our Performing Team Program requires participation in 1 week of Summer Camp.

  • Participation in 2 to 3 weeks is recommended, but not required, to optimize your time over the summer and to take advantage of quality instruction offered

  • Audition results will be emailed on or before Tuesday, August 18th. 

  • The next steps for acceptance into a company or performing team level will be included in the email containing audition results.  

  • If a dancer is planning to audition, they must be registered for the summer intensives to fulfill their requirement. 

  • Audition registration and parent meeting will be held when the studio re-opens for summer camp sessions

 

Available Team Options:

Ages and level of commitment vary

Groupings may be made within each level as well

General guidelines are as follows:

Company Groups

Our Company Groups are designed for dedicated dancers interested in studying the true art of dance at an elite level, mastering proper technique and execution of movement.   These dancers will train with our accomplished local staff and guest artists throughout the country.  Their training commitment will cover ballet, jazz/contemporary, lyrical, and hip-hop disciplines with tap and Pointe as optional offerings.  Overall training ranges from 5.5 to 12 hours a week plus rehearsal time.  These students will compete in regional and national events throughout the year, gaining exposure and recognition throughout the country.

4 Company Levels

  1. Advanced Company Full Season - Dancers ages 10 through High School

  2. Advanced Company Partial Season - High School Age Dancers

  3. Junior Company - Dancers ages 9 - 14

  4. Mini Company Age Range 5-11 (Age 5 by August 1st, 2020)

 

Performance Teams

Our Performance Team Groups are designed for beginner through advanced dancers that want to take advantage of the proper training that Inspire has to offer but have less time in their weekly schedule to commit.  Students in this program will study ballet and jazz with optional offerings in lyrical, hip hop, and tap. Performance Team members will spend dance 3-6 hours a week training (depending upon their placement level) and are invited to attend several local competitions, one convention and the opportunity to attend additional events with our company members
