Audition FAQ's

Who is the Audition for?

Ages 7-18 in 2021

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 free of charge to the public where other studios charge a minimum of $30 for an audition.   

  • 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 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, where they will be placed on a team and begin learning competitive material.  

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

  • All dancers that have auditioned have 1 week to pay their registration fee for the 2021/22 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 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, do not register, or call the front desk to notify us before the Deadline.

Individuals should STAND OUT

  • Ladies – Please wear modest dance clothing.    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 as well as indoor, clean Tennis shoes and wear your hair up.
  • Guys – Make sure to wear more form fitting athletic/dance wear so that we can see your movement and form clearly.
