Age | Levels!

Audition like Royalty Workshop!

Our “Audition Like Royalty” Workshop is an educational experience for dancers of all ages!  Whether or not you are interested in pursuing a professional career in dance or commercial work, this class benefits all!  All of these useful tools and tips can be applied to everything in a dancer’s career, from auditions to interviews and much more! The Audition Workshop is in a setting that is nurturing and supportive and also educational and fun! Led by one of our accredited master teachers, who has years of hands-on experience on what to do and more importantly, what NOT to do at an audition or interview!  This one-of-a-kind real-time experience, gives your dancers an edge as they enter the professional world!  Our class begins with the Audition Process Do’s and Don’ts!  How to be prepared, What to Wear, How to Stand Out amongst your competition; Learn all about  the “Callback”; being “Cut” or “Making the Cut”; “Combinations” and more! Our Mock Audition provides ALL Dancers with the unique experience of what a Real Audition will be like! However, we refer to our Dance Royalty by name, not numbers. All dancers are eligible for Scholarship Awards, based on their ages, their abilities, their passion, their personality, NOT, not their Audition! There will be feedback given to all dancers on an individual basis to help correct mistakes and to also point out what they did correctly. We do our best to always provide a positive and encouraging atmosphere, while also preparing the dancers on what to expect in the real audition world. In each class there will be a combination presented, which will directly be followed by the “audition process”. 

  • Directors and Teachers are allowed in the audition room.

  • NO OBSERVERS are allowed into the audition room.
