RSVP to the studio either by emailing Michelle at firstname.lastname@example.org or phone the studio – (512) 248-8323. You must attend this meeting if you are new to the studio or have not participated on our competitive teams in the past.
What To Expect:
Dancers auditioning for Mini/Junior/Teen/Senior should be prepared to audition in ballet and jazz. Crew will warm up and then audition with hip hop. Dancers will be scored according to their abilities in technique, turns, jumps, flexibility, attitude, performance quality, and team spirit. Ages listed are guidelines only. Technical ability can/may precede age in team placement.
Please understand that this is a competitive audition and that some dancers may not be accepted onto the team. Parents please be sure to discuss this with your dancer prior to the audition. We hold our competitive team dancers at a high standard and expect them to perform and audition as such. If you have any concerns regarding this issue, please be sure to call Michelle prior to audition day. The Dance Works wants any auditions to be a positive experience for everyone.
Please don’t hesitate to contact the studio if you have questions.
