PLEASE READ THIS FIRST!!!
First, we would like to thank everyone that auditioned for a place on the 2015-16 Elite Performance Companies. We take the job of casting very seriously and have spent the past week consulting with all the Elite faculty on placement concerns. Each individual dancers future goals and past dance experience is taken into account. It is of paramount importance to a dancers development to experience being the least technical/ youngest performer in a group and also the most advanced/ oldest performer in a group. None of the placement was decided without hours of discussion, studying audition footage, and watching previous dance performances. Keep in mind that the extra competition dances will consist of a mix of company dancers and ages and the rehearsal schedule will be set by the end of August and possibly even sooner. All extra dances are cast by the teachers and are optional. If you have any questions about placement or are wanting to get advice on the best possible dance schedule for your dancer, please email us at: firstname.lastname@example.org and set up a time to talk to one of the artistic directors. We would be happy to discuss anything with you, but don’t typically have time to go into detail about schedules between classes at the studio.
