A completed audition form is required for each dancer, which can be downloaded HERE. Please print and complete the form and bring it with you to the audition. Also, be sure to attach a photo of the dancer to the form in the space provided.

Please arrive 30 minutes before the audition time so that the dancer has time to settle in, have measurements taken and get ready!

The auditions are closed to the public, so we will have a check-in/check-out table where dancers will be signed in and out by parents or caregivers. The back door will be closed, so please enter on Park Street. The studio will be quite crowded, so please do not linger on the stairs or any lobby areas.

  • Girls: Leotard, Tights & Ballet Shoes, with hair securely pulled back in a bun.
