All students will participate in the Musical Theatre Dance Audition. Those who are accepted into the BFA Program and have advanced training will be asked to come back for the professional level dance auditions for placement purposes. Those auditions take place Saturday, Nov. 19, 2011, Saturday, February 18, 2012 and Saturday, April 14, 2012. Additionally, Dance Auditions will be held the Friday before classes begin.
* All candidates are asked to dress in dance attire and bring ballet slippers and/or jazz shoes, if available.
* If a candidate has never had dance training, they will be placed into introductory courses and deferred to a later audition.
The candidate will prepare one contemporary monologue from a published play not to exceed two minutes. The monologue must be memorized.
The candidate will prepare two songs; both must be memorized. Both songs must be from the standard musical theatre repertory and must represent a contrast of style, (i.e. one up-tempo and one ballad). Selections should not be an entire song. Thirty two bars are sufficient. Selections should not exceed three minutes combined. Please bring sheet music in your key. An accompanist will be provided. Candidates may be asked to participate in a pitch-matching exercise.
