  • Create a 1 minute solo to a song of your choice using the following prompt: Dance company is an ensemble group who has to learn to dance as one. Pick a room in your home. This room becomes your stage. The items in the room become your fellow dancers. Use the space and items in this room as creatively as possible. Don’t forget to research and utilize the elements of dance as best as you can. This is not an improvisation!! This should be a set work that you can dance twice in a row exactly the same. 

  • Prepare for a one on one interview with the coach. 

  • Join the google meets at your scheduled time and dance your heart out.

  • Things to remember and keep in mind in trying out:

  • Number of years of experience does not matter. I am looking for dedicated and hard working members. 

  • This is a team activity so full commitment is crucial to a successful year. Remember Our season is all year. Attendance and punctuality are key.

  • This also has a required fee to participate
