The CDP Dance Company is an opportunity for your child to grow as an artist and athlete. It is a privilege for those excited and willing to commit to a deeper knowledge of the arts, technique, and performance. It is a family of dancers taking their dance experience to another level. They learn many genres of dance, attend multiple classes per week, perform at various events throughout the year, and participate in dance competitions and conventions.

Please arrive 15 minutes prior to your audition time to stretch independently and receive your audition number. Please bring ballet,  jazz and tap shoes for the audition. All dancers will need to have ballet shoes on first.

 

ALL COMPANY DANCERS ARE REQUIRED TO AUDITION IN BALLET AND JAZZ. Only  dancers who are auditioning for Pre, Petite, Mini, Tween or Junior will audition in TAP. Tap is  an optional dance from for Juniors, Teens, and Seniors. If you are auditioning for the Junior, Teen, or Senior Company you will be able to indicate your Tap interest on the audition form. 

ALL DANCERS MUST COMPLETE THE 2021-2022 COMPETITIVE COMPANY AUDITION FORM.

Ballet and Jazz auditions will determine placement and consideration for additional dance forms including  Musical Theater, Lyrical, Contemporary, Hip Hop, and Acrobatics (if applicable). 

The first portion of the audition will be structured as a Ballet class, focusing on barre exercises and  center combinations demonstrating the dancers’ technique. 

During the ballet portion, dancers will be taking a class while being observed by a panel of judges. In addition  to technical ability, judges will be watching for focus, work ethic, attitude, ability to make corrections,  performance quality, appearance, and showmanship. While we do not expect perfection, we are looking for  dancers with determination and potential! 

The next portion of the audition will be focused on Jazz. During this time, dancers will learn a Jazz  combination incorporating more advanced elements and style. 

The last portion of the audition will be focused on Tap. Dancers auditioning for the CDP Pre, Petite,  Mini, or Tween companies are required to attend this portion. Tap is optional for dancers auditioning for the  CDP Teen, or Senior companies. If you are interested in auditioning for tap, please indicate this on your  audition form. During this time dancers will learn a small Tap combination demonstrating age-appropriate  skills and rhythms. 

WHAT TO WEAR: Dancers should plan to wear leotard and tights. No leggings or shorts. Dancers currently  in our CDP company should not wear their company uniforms from the 2020-2021 season. No loose clothing  will be permitted during the audition. Dancers should “look the part” — hair neatly secured in a bun, bright  eyes, performance-ready. The better you feel, the better you’ll dance. Wear something you feel confident in.  Add some extra shimmer – your judges will notice! 

RESULTS: Although you may receive them earlier, audition results will be emailed to each individual dancer  within 6 weeks of your scheduled audition. If you are not currently dancing in our CDP competitive company,  you may receive your results earlier.
