Review our complete online 2022/23 schedule via Google Drive: Schedule 2022/23.
Throughout the month of May, all interested students (current and incoming) will audition in a GDSC’s technique class (hip hop, jazz and/or tap). Students interested in hip hop will audition in one hip hop technique class. Students interested in contemporary, jazz, lyrical and/or musical theater will audition in one jazz technique class. Students interested in tap will audition in one tap technique class.
Students (current and incoming) unable to attend an audition, please see our absence procedure below.
The audition schedule will be as follows:
Week One: Hip Hop, Monday, May 1, 6:30-7:30 p.m.
Week Two: Tap, Tuesday, May 9, 4:30-5:30 p.m.
Week Three: Jazz & Musical Theater, May 16, 7:30-8:30 p.m.
Week Four: Lyrical & Contemporary, May 23, 6:30-7:30 p.m.
For those who would like to audition for Acro, please connect with admin via email at firstname.lastname@example.org.
Students who are enrolled in the auditioning tech class but not interested in auditioning will be included in the audition process, as GDSC considers this workshop-style curriculum a great learning experience for all.
All current students who are absent for audition(s) will need to schedule a private audition, which costs $40+/hour depending on instructor. Attendance is highly suggested to avoid this fee. Students who express interest after auditions have occurred in May, please touch base with admin via email at email@example.com.
If you or your child are new and interested in auditioning for one or both of our programs OR if you’re a current student who has specific questions about the process, reach out via email at firstname.lastname@example.org. You may also sign up for auditions here.
Though we are investigating the following opportunities, nothing is set in stone. Please stay tuned for a list of confirmed events, as well as a timeline, for the 2023/34 dance season. Thank you for your patience as we establish plans for next year!
