We have been waiting to announce our summer plans but we believe we have developed a plan to have ‘safe’ events this summer. Specifically, we will be social distancing, implementing strict cleaning protocols, and limiting indoor gatherings as required by occupancy codes. Auditions will occur at the Mt. Zion Community Center in Waterford, a 60,000 square foot facility with excellent ventilation and plenty of open space. However, as always, if you or someone in your household has an underlying condition or is at risk, please be sure to contact us and we will do our best to find an alternate solution for your son/daughter.
Dance Company auditions will take place the week of June 22nd. We will be sending out the audition form and an advance copy of the audition choreography so you can prepare prior to the audition. Please click here to register to audition. The registration deadline is June 12, 2020, so that we can eMail you the audition form and choreography you need. We will be auditioning the students in small groups based on the technique they are interested in. In order to maintain our social distancing, we are also in need of parent volunteers to help with this event. If you are available to help, please sign up on Sign Up Genius at the same link as the audition.
Please sign up to audition based on your age and your technique of interest (i.e., if you are 12 and interested in both Hip Hop and Jazz, you would sign up under Senior Company in both the Hip Hop and Jazz time slot). For those interested in being considered for Elite Company, new this year, a short interview is being included as part of the audition process. Each interview session will be ten minutes so you will need to sign up for an interview time slot when you register for the audition. A follow up eMail will be sent June 15th with the choreography you need along with your audition form. Please come to the audition prepared with your choreography, a completed copy of your audition form along with a head shot/school picture. The audition will have a one-time fee of $35 per student.
Company Placements will be available by 5pm on July 3, 2020. Two meeting times have been scheduled for our parents on Thursday, July 9 and Tuesday, July 14, 2020 at 7pm (both meetings are identical and you only need to attend one of the two sessions). Company families will receive detailed information on the coming season at these meetings. The contract, signed by both the student and the parent, along with registration paperwork and first payment is to be turned in to the studio no later than July 17, 2020.
