Some of you have looked ahead on the calendar and noticed we have 'early select group' castings scheduled for Tuesday, 6/14/22 at 5:30 and 7:00 p.m. We're excited for this new option for our competition team dancers - read on to hear what it is!
As you likely know, this year we offered 'select groups' to dancers who wanted more performance opportunities. These optional routines are auditioned for (at 'castings') after our regular team auditions and dancers are chosen directly by the choreographers for additional routines entered into our competition season. This year, those routines are: Speaking French, Rise, and Catch.
Next season, we are offering 'early select groups' in addition to our regular select groups. There will be two early select groups cast: one younger and one older. The early select groups will attend castings on Tuesday, 6/14/22 (note that team placement auditions are Monday, 6/13/22). Younger students will attend at 5:30 and older students will attend at 7:00 p.m. More details regarding this will be announced as it nears.
Early select groups will begin rehearsals over the summer, with the intention of being ready to enter into NYCDA and RADIX, as well as our 3 whole-team competition events. This is an exciting new option for our competition team dancers, and we are thrilled to be able to offer this as we continue to ELEVATE our team!
