Accelerated Dance & Competitive Company AUDITIONS 2024

Audition FAQ's

Who is the Audition for?

Ages 7-17 by Sept 2024

While we do offer placement recommendation assessments to our clients of all ages, this specific audition is for those dancers that would like to dance at an accelerated level or become part of Illumination Dance Company, our competitive company. 

Is there a cost to Audition?

At DDANW we honor our current and future clients by making our audition fee only $10 to the public where other studios charge a minimum of $30-$50 for an audition.  This fee covers staffing hours and pre/post audition application processing hours and resources.

  • Please arrive 10 min prior to audition time for check-in

What happens after Auditions?

After auditions, dancers will receive an email regarding placement in Accelerated Dance Classes or IDC Competitive Company and a list of summer classes/camps that are recommended.  All dancers selected for the Competitive Company will be required to attend our IDC Summer Blitz and a minimum of 50% of specified team training sessions during the summer months, where they will  learn competitive team routines and strengthen technique.  

In the event that a dancer is not yet ready for accelerated or competitive dance, they will receive recommendations for classes that will best prepare them for future opportunities.

  • All dancers that have auditioned have 1 week to pay their registration fee for the 2024/25 season.  
  • On the date of the Deadline we will create our Acc/IDC rosters and all contracts of registered dancers will become active for the new season.
  • Each class has a limited amount of spots available and will only be filled by those who have paid their registration fee.

 

What if I Audition and then decide it’s not for me?

Simply call the front desk to notify us prior to the Deadline

Individuals should STAND OUT

  • Ladies –  A Leotard, fitted top, Yoga pants or dance shorts are great! Make an impression with your dancing, not with unnecessary distractions. Make sure to bring dance shoes that you can turn in (if needed) and wear your hair up and out of your face.
  • Guys – Make sure to wear more form fitting athletic/dance wear so that we can see your movement and form clearly.
