We are excited to announce our upcoming Auditions for the 2022-2023 Season! If you love to dance and perform, we would love to see you at our auditions! Please read through all the info carefully, and feel free to email us at info@prodigydancecentrega.com with any questions you may have . The Prodigy Dance Company requires talent, commitment, dedication, passion, hard work, an eagerness to learn, and a desire to perform and grow as a dancer. And what your child will gain from the experience is priceless—as both a dancer and an individual. 

The audition and selection process requires much planning and thought, and your dancer should be very confident about their desire to be a part of our Dance Company. If your dancer decides to not participate after being selected for our Dance Company, it is unfair to all involved. That spot could have been given to another dancer. Please talk to your dancer about commitment and how important it is to follow through. We are looking for dancers who are talented, focused, driven, and excited to be a part of a well-respected and award-winning Dance Company.

AUDITION APPLICATION

Applications: Our audition application is electronic, and you can find it on our website or by clicking here. Please complete and submit this application ASAP but no later than Friday, May 20th by 10:00 a.m. Organizing these forms can be quite time consuming, and submitting late will incur a $20 fee.

AUDITION PROCESS

Part One: Ballet and Jazz Audition

All dancers wishing to audition for our Dance Company will be required to attend the ballet and jazz audition within the appropriate age groups, no matter which level they are currently in. Dancers will be evaluated on their ballet and jazz technique during this portion of the audition. During this time, the dancers will perform a short ballet barre/center and a short jazz combination. Both the ballet and jazz combinations will be taught in the audition.

Part Two: Callback Auditions: 

The second part of the audition will be the callback auditions. This is where we will see you do additional styles of dance, and also see you in specific groups based on the needs of our season. The combinations for the callback auditions will be filmed and posted on Dropbox. Dancers will use the Dropbox link to learn these combinations prior to the callback audition. Callback combinations for the 13-18 age group will not be reviewed prior to your audition by any member of the faculty. The Dropbox link will be posted on the company page of the website on Friday, May 20th by 12pm. 

Below is what you will need to learn from the Dropbox link (found on the website).

  • Jazz Combination (this is a separate combo then the one they will learn during part one of the audition process)

  • Lyrical/Contemporary Combination

  • Hip Hop Combination - this combination is not required for the callback audition. If a dancer wishes to be considered for a hip hop routine, they will need to learn the hip hop combination via the Dropbox link and perform it at the callback audition. If a dancer does not perform the hip hop combination at the callback, they will not be considered for a hip hop routine. 

 

There will be a mandatory meeting for all 2022-2023 Company members on Sunday, July 17th, 2022 at 3:00 p.m.
 

We look forward to another wonderful season for our Prodigy Dance Company and cannot wait to jump in and get started! More information regarding our 2022-2023 season will be released at the May 15th meeting. If you have any questions please feel free to email us info@prodigydancecentrega.com
