Spring Ballet Auditions
Casting auditions for the premier production of Snow White, the ballet, will be held on February 1st, 2020 at Children's Dance Theater's Federal Way location. Dancers need to arrive 15 minutes early to fill out paperwork. They should be dressed in ballet attire with hair in a bun. Auditions are a dancers job interview so please look your ballet best. Dancers will participate in an age and level appropriate ballet class, including barre work. This class may also include acrobatic tricks and a few phrases of choreography and demonstrate them in small groups per the director's discretion. Auditions are a fun and positive atmosphere. Teachers are simply looking for the best role to showcase your child's abilities. If you cannot attend auditions but still wish to participate please email us at firstname.lastname@example.org and make the subject line "Spring Ballet Auditions". We may be able to make alternate arrangements. We will have casting posted on February 7th, 2020 on our website. Dancers must be at least 5 years old

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.
