This is NOT required, as you will be placed by ability over age 5. 



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 $25.00 audition fee (regardless of number of audition classes taken). Current company members, this fee will be added to your dancer portal. New dancers auditioning, Cash is the preferred method of payment, but checks will also be accepted. 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! 



Auditionees should be dressed in form fitting dance attire for jazz, 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.

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 2022-2023 Company. From there, ALL company members will be REQUIRED to attend our Summer Intensive from July 7-9 and all routine placements will be determined at this time. You will receive invites to specific routines no later than August 1st and will have until August 10th to accept.
