2018 Open Audition Dates
Saturday June 23rd
Ages 5-7 - 12:00pm-12:45pm
Ages 8-10 - 12:45pm- 1:45pm
Ages 11+ - 1:45pm-3:30pm
Ages 11+ must perform a 1 minute self choreographed solo to show to our judges. Ages 10 and under will participate in a technique workshop and learn a short combination. There is absolutely no alternative date for our auditions. All dancers must be present to be placed on a team.
Solos can be any genre (jazz, lyrical, contemporary)
Students please come dressed professionally in a leotard, tights, the proper shoes, and hair pulled back. We are looking for showmanship, confidence and passion for our team members. This is an amazing way to get the feel of a real audition! Learn and grow from you performances and find the passion at GJD!
If our panel of judges feel a student may need some more time in technique classes they will advise positively in hopes for a dancers return to the audition process the following year. At Grand Jete we build student morale and confidence with the proper placement of each and every individual. We hope to see you at our auditions in June 2018!
