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.
Students must take the required “Summer Intensive” class
Students must send in audition form, signed policies, and audition tape to be considered.
All dancers must turn in the audition form and signed policies on their Audition Date!
Students and families have until July 15, to notify the studio by email what spots they have selected.
All dancers are required to be in studio dress code for auditions (All black, tight fitted dance clothing, hair in a secure bun, tights, and proper shoes) Being out of dress code will be noted on your audition negatively.
The previous year’s attendance and the work ethic demonstrated in front of the judges will also be taken into account.
Dancers' account balance must be at $0 to be accepted onto the team.
Competition Team Placement
The ruling of the guest judges is final.
It will not be overturned by your instructors or by the studio owner.
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.
