Please complete the above form if you plan to attend our 2024-2025 SHOCK Company Auditions. They will take place on Saturday May 18th! Company Spots are LIMITED! 


If you are interested in taking your dancing to the next level, training with experienced and supportive staff, being a part of a team, and becoming a part of a FAMILY, Shock Dance Center is the Company for YOU! 

Please Note: Dancers should audition with their age group for your age AS OF MAY 18th, 2024. No exceptions!! Remember, company placement IS NOT exclusively determined by age. Skill level, technical achievement/potential, performance ability AND work ethic and class behavior are the crucial elements which determine company placement.

WHAT TO EXPECT AT AUDITIONS: 
Parents (or dancers) will be required to fill out a short google form prior to auditions, This will indicate the audition classes you will be attending for the day. Dancers must pay a $35.00 audition fee prior to attending audition day. No dancers will be eligible to audition who have an outstanding balance. All dancers must register for their audition class using the Shock Dance Portal link below. Sign in or create an account > enroll in a class > auditions 2024.  

Please note: your spot is NOT reserved until both the payment and google forms are completed. During ALL company auditions, dancers may be asked to follow a brief warm up. They will then be asked to learn a short piece of choreography in different genres and perform it in groups. They will also be asked to demonstrate specific technical skills.


AUDITION DRESS CODE/ETIQUETTE:
Auditionees should be dressed in form fitting dance attire for jazz, musical theatre, lyrical, contemporary and tap auditions. Baggy tops/sweats are appropriate to bring for any hip-hop portions only. Dancers should have proper footwear for each style of dance for which they intend to audition. Hair should be pulled back out of the face and tidy. 
Other Audition Etiquette Notes:
*ONLY water will be permitted in the studio.
*Dancers may bring dance bags into the studio with them.
*Dancers should not talk during auditions unless they are directing questions to the instructor.
*When not dancing, dancers may vocally support others while they are performing in groups!
*Dancers should NOT SIT at any point during audition classes unless permission to do so is granted by Staff.

A NOTE TO PARENTS:
SHOCK company auditions are closed, meaning parents are not permitted in the studio during auditions. Parents of dancers over the age of 5, you may plan to drop off/pick up your dancer, and refrain from waiting in the lobby, as to keep capacity at a minimum.

Following auditions, SHOCK staff will send an email to all who audition to inform them if they have earned a spot on our 2024-2025 Company. From there, ALL company members will be REQUIRED to attend our Summer Intensive from July 10-12 (ages 7 and up) or June 12-13 (ages 8 and under) and all routine placements will be determined at this time. You will receive invites to specific routines no later than July 24th and will have until July 29th to accept. At that point, specific details regarding all fees, company installments, choreography dates, etc will be sent out. We look forward to an AMAZING audition day with everyone!
