Please Note: Dancers should audition with their age group for your age AS OF MAY 20th, 2023. 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 ONE $35.00 audition fee (regardless of number of audition classes taken). Current company members, this fee will be added to your dancer portal only if you have NO outstanding balance. Those with an outstanding balance will not be allowed to audition for the new season. New dancers auditioning, please Venmo @shockdancecenter to reserve your audition spot. Please note: your spot is NOT reserved until payment is 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 the style of the audition class and perform it in groups!
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 for hip-hop auditions 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 2023-2024 Company. From there, ALL company members will be REQUIRED to attend our Summer Intensive from July 6-8 (ages 7 and up) or June 14/15 (ages 4-6) and all routine placements will be determined at this time. You will receive invites to specific routines no later than July 20th and will have until July 25th 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!
