Dance Audition Instructions

Choreography Combinations

Please learn the material from all three audition videos posted: ballet, modern, and African-house. Videotape yourself performing the combinations. Use a separate video file for each technique/style.

For musical accompaniment, you may use the audio from the audition videos for all three portions. For the modern and African-house portions, you can find the musical selections on YouTube also.

Choreography/Performance

Perform a piece that you have choreographed. The solo, 1–3 minutes long, should be designed to demonstrate your creativity and show your abilities as a performer. We are not interested in seeing technical tricks as much as seeing your individuality and sense of self in your performance. The solo can be in silence or with music.

Once we have received your audition videos, we will contact you to set up an interview.
