Auditions - Monday, June 21st
Parent Meeting -  Thursday, June 10th @ 6:00 pm
RSVP for the Parent Meeting @ inspire.admin.news@gmail.com

On Monday, June 21st, 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. 

Before 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 and will begin on Monday, June 7th. Click the button above to complete the form.

  • Dancers should report 15 minutes before 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 3 weeks of Summer Camp for all mini elite, junior, teen, and senior company members.  

  • 2 Weeks are required for mini-company level.

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

  • Audition results will be emailed on or before Monday, July 12th. 

  • 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. 

 

Available Team Options:

We offer a membership for every age and experience level.  Each of our teams holds different age, training, travel and overall time commitment level.  Preliminary information will be available at the parent meeting with final details provided as part of the acceptance process.  Please note, sub-groups may be made within each level and vary from year to year.

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

Advanced Company Full Season - Dancers ages 10 through High School

Advanced Company Partial Season - High School Age Dancers

Junior Company - Dancers ages 9 - 14

Mini Company Age Range 5-10 (Age 5 by August 1st, 2021)

 

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.
