Rules & Guidelines for Dancer Auditions
If you are interested in joining us for Season Thirteen, please read through the following instructions carefully. Some of our policies and procedures have changed.
Upon arrival, dancers will check in with OSDC staff at the front desk and fill out any necessary paperwork. Walk-ins are welcome if there is still space available.
All dancers interested in joining OnStage Dance Company, must attend the Dancer Auditions. Auditions are available in Jazz, Tap, Hip Hop and Contemporary. We do not have an audition for Cultural pieces, but require dancers to have a minimum Level in a particular style of dance, or receive approval from the choreographer.
When you fill out your application, you will be asked which dance style auditions you would like to attend and will be assigned to audition sessions based on your responses.
Dancers will receive a ticket for their audition when they check in upon arrival. Dancers will not be permitted into the audition without a ticket. All Auditions will start promptly at the time listed. Late-comers will NOT be permitted in the studio.
Each session will last 60-90 minutes (depending on the dance style and size of the session) and consist of across the floor sequences, improvisation exercises and learning choreography. Dancers must be able to pick up the choreography quickly and easily, and demonstrate proper technique. A rubric listing specific minimum requirements for each level will be sent to all dancers once they submit their application so they may prepare in advance.
