  • Pre-registration is preferred.  Please call or stop by to provide your information and receive a time and audition number.

  • Dancers should report 15 minutes prior to the time designated for the group 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 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. Consult our staff to determine if you will need to attend more than one session.

  • Acceptance into the Company Program requires participation in 3 weeks of Summer Camp for all advanced company members. 

  • Participation in all 3 weeks of camp is highly recommended for other company levels as well, 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
