Feb. 22, 2020 — On March 14, CROW will hold open auditions for any dancer (ages 6+) interested in a solo/duet/small group performance piece in this year’s 2020 Spring Dance Showcase. These public performances are in celebration of all forms of dance, and will take place on May 8 and 9 at the Florence Events Center.
To be considered, dancers MUST attend the audition on Saturday, March 14, at 2:30 p.m. at the CROW Center for the Performing Arts, 3120 Highway 101 in Florence.
Dancers should wear dance shoes and dance attire, and bring a device such as an MP3 player, phone, or tablet with the music track on it. CROW will provide a speaker you can connect to.
“Your piece does not have to be 100% finished, but it must show a good amount of the choreography, plus the expression, style, and technique of the dancer,” said CROW’s Artistic Director Melanie Heard. “The more complete the piece is, the better.”
Dancers should be prepared to discuss performance costumes if asked (which must be approved in advance by CROW). Choreography and music must not have profanity or inappropriate words/movements, and must be appropriate for all audiences.
This audition is open to ALL dancers involved in classes (either with CROW or at another location), private lessons, self-choreography, and any other people/small groups that would like to give it a try.
Space is limited in the showcase, and the audition will be judged by a panel of CROW judges including CROW dance teachers, board members and production team members. Auditioning does not guarantee you a spot in the program.
Dancers will be notified shortly after the audition if they have been accepted.
