Note: If you need assistance with some of the ballet terms, you can google/search for them and locate definitions, pictures and videos of the ballet moves. An excellent YouTube channel that features videos of these moves is the “Just for Kix” Youtube channel.
Round 3 – Group Dance – Dancers will be required to demonstrate proficiency in 2 phases of this round:
Dancers will be evaluated on how they perform with group members, how quickly they pick up the material, and how well they perform the material, showmanship and poise.
Round 4 – Interview – Dancers will be asked questions by the judges to evaluate their speaking ability, poise and maturity.
There will be cuts after each round. If you are excused after a round you will not be able to remain in the audition room as the audition process is closed to ALL spectators. All audition rounds and performances will be recorded, and ALL judges decisions are FINAL.
