What to Expect and Audition Day Schedule

Competition Team Placement
The ruling of the guest judges is final.
It will not be overturned by your instructors or by the studio owner.
Placement will be determined on the Sunday after the Final Audition
It is against the policy of WME to allow dancers to select their team placement, their duo/trio partner, their style, their song, their costume, or their instructor. We place dancers according to their skill level and who they dance best with.
AUDITIONING FOR COMPETITION
It is important that each and every dancer and parent read and understand the competition team requirements and policies PRIOR TO AUDITIONING. Any dancer age 5 and up, is eligible to audition for the competitive team. Younger students are able to participate with a special invitation and permission from studio owner. All students interested in being on the competitive team will be required to attend one of two audition dates to be placed on the correct team and determine if they are ready to be a competitive dancer. Dance teams will be split based on technique, age, ability, attitude, maturity, motivation, commitment, and strength. Please note that neither age nor friendships will be the main deciding factor or placement. We will be looking at skills, technique, flexibility, performance quality, and teamwork.
