Perception Dance Company Auditions
2021 - 2022
July 17 - 18, 2021
It is recommended that you complete the Audition Sheet below and email to firstname.lastname@example.org or drop it off at the studio prior to auditions. This will help with our planning and increase the likelihood of Perception Dance being able to offer you the number and types of competition dances requested.
Dancers are required to wear all black, as well as, have their hair pulled back into a clean bun all days of auditions. Jazz shoes are preferred. If the dancer does not own jazz shoes, it’s acceptable to wear ballet shoes. Please come to auditions warm and fully stretched.
Day one of auditions will consist of learning two routines (ages 8 and under will learn one routine) used for audition dances. On day two, dancers will go across the floor and be judged on the technique portion of the audition. On June 26th, dancers will perform their audition combos from the first day in small groups. Please note, if you wish to audition for a hip hop routine, you will learn the combination on June 24th and perform it on June 26th.
This year, we will be choreographing the 2021-22 Production starting the day after auditions (June 27 - June 30). If you are interested in being considered for Production, please note it on the audition form and sign the Production participation agreement form.
Choosing Production as one of your 2021-22 dances does not guarantee that you will be selected for that dance. We will be notifying selected dancers on the evening of June 26th. Since Production choreography must take place before all other dances are assigned, this year we are requiring a financial commitment to hold your spot in Production. If you would choose to leave at any time after choreography of Production, you will be responsible for all cost associated with Production choreography and costuming.
Dancers will audition in groups based on their age, as of January 1st, 2022.
If you are unable to attend auditions, please let us know BEFORE auditions.
Please arrive 15 minutes early, to get signed in and audition sheets completed.
There will be a $30 audition fee per dancer that will go toward the cost of teachers and judges. Please bring checks made out to Perception Dance or cash. Thank you!
