Auditions will be held on the following days:


We are looking for one female student approximately around the age of 13 that is interested in a contemporary dance solo, small speaking role, and short song for our performing arts school's Evening Spring Dance Performance. Our student that is originally cast in this role has an evening conflict, so we are looking at finding someone to take the role for the double cast.

This could be broken up into three roles, but we would prefer one student who is confident in all styles.

Please submit a resume, headshot, availability on weekend dates from February 18th-May 20th.

Submissions may be emailed to before February 12th, and an audition date and time will be emailed back within one day.

Auditioners should prepare a short dance submission, accapella vocal piece, and be prepared to read from the script.
