It’s hard to believe that soon cooler temps, football, and dance will again be a part of our lives. Summer is in full swing and it’s not disappointing in keeping us indoors most of the time.
Our DW Halloween Society is busy planning our Halloween Costume Gala Event, Saturday, October 17th, 2015 benefiting the Williamson County Children’s Advocacy Center and our auditions for the production numbers at the event are just around the corner.
Here are the details for the auditions and opportunities for all of our dancers to be part of the event.

*Dancers will need to arrive at 3:30 pm to sign in and warm up. This year dancers will sign in requesting which pieces they are interested in auditioning for.
We have four production pieces available, all dancers, all genres ages 10+ are encouraged to audition unless noted specifically below.

Rehearsals will be held on the following dates:
Performance – October 17
As time is limited to rehearse with the dancers, they will be required to attend all rehearsals.
There are no tuition, audition or rehearsal fees associated with being part of this event; the parents of selected dancers will be required to purchase at least one ticket to the gala in order for dancers to perform and must be purchased prior to the first rehearsal. The parent must attend the event along with the dancer which is totally awesome because it includes dinner, dancing, costume contest and most importantly parents get to watch their dancers perform and help a great cause all at the same time, what’s not to love about that. Additionally, dancers will be responsible for his/her own costuming.
For our dancers 16 + there is the opportunity to be considered for a dance captain to assist Miss Sonja during rehearsals as well as the evening of the performance. This person will also be given the opportunity to choreograph the pre show piece of “I Want Candy” under Miss Sonja’s guidance. Dancers may apply by submitting an online registration form via the studio website and place Halloween dance captain/choreographer consideration.
