Spring Ballet Auditions
Casting for the production of Snow White, the ballet, will be held on January 16th, 2021. Dancers interested in being a part of the production need to complete the online application. The application can be found at on our website. It is submitted digitally. Dancers need to complete the application by January 15th, 2021
We made the choice to not hold auditions this year as dancers are just getting back into class after the December break. It is also the intention to cast the dancers as close to the previous casting as the canceled 2020 as possible. Dancers need to keep in mind that there may be some necessary changes to accommodate the necessary roles if dancers do not return. Teachers are simply looking for the best role to showcase your child's abilities. We will have casting posted on January 18th, 2021 on our website. Dancers must be at least 5 years old
Casting results are final. We ask that when dancers make the choice to audition, they are prepared to accept any role offered to them. Casting is not taken lightly and we work hard so that each dancer has a moment to shine. Unfortunately, not everyone can be the lead role. There are many things to consider when choosing roles and a beautiful dancer may not be right for that role. It is difficult but also very important for young dancers to learn to not take casting personally. This is a crucial skill in a performer’s life.
Dancers must wear dance attire and have ballet buns for rehearsal. Dance warm ups, skirts and etc are allowed. Please bring appropriate shoes to rehearsals. If your dancer has multiple rehearsals don’t forget to bring water and snacks.
Rehearsals will take place Fridays from 4:30-8pm & Saturdays 1:00-5:00pm at our Federal Way Loction
Dancers are expected to make these rehearsals a top priority. While we can work with a few absences, it is very important to have good attendance. Please AVOID missing any rehearsal but April rehearsals are extremely important for a smooth tech week. (this will mean dancers are not at the theatre late into the night) If you cannot avoid an absence please let us know as soon as possible. Make sure that any planned vacations are listed on your audition form.
We use a closed facebook group and FREE app called Team app for all of our communications. Individual routine times will be announced no later than February 7th. All participants are required to download and use Team App. This is a free app and works with both android and apple products. This is the primary mode of communication for participants. It has many wonderful features like push notifications, reminders and calendar addition tools. You are also encouraged to join our closed facebook group. This will have videos uploaded for at home practice purposes.
