2018-2019 Dance Institute Auditions

Joy of Motion Dance Center’s Dance Institute is holding auditions for the 2018-2019 school year for its youth and adult programs. Dance Institute provides rigorous conservatory-style training programs to youth and adult students that are dedicated to dance. Under the direction of Helen Hayes, students and faculty in these rich, curriculum-based training programs are committed to pursuing the highest standards of quality at all levels. Students of all ages in the Dance Institute program benefit from the emphasis on the holistic training with a focus on strengthening the mind as well as the body and continue to reap the benefits both inside and outside of the studio.

Announcing: Dance Institute Auditions for 2018-2019

You don’t need to prepare anything to audition and you don’t need extensive experience in the style — in fact, you don’t even need to be a current Joy of Motion student. These auditions are like free classes that enable both you and our faculty to assess whether the program is a good fit. So even if you’re just thinking about it, we encourage you to sign up and try out the program first-hand.

Youth Auditions will consist of a ballet class, modern and jazz combinations, and improvisation. ADC candidates who have tap experience will have the chance to perform tap skills/combination as well. 

Stay tuned for more information about the LEAP! placement audition information for adults.
