Spring Dance 2015 Audition forms

Audition Form

SpringDance 2015 Commitment Agreement

 

Tap Ensemble 2015 - 2016 season auditions: To be announced 

 

Winter Dance-Spring Dance

K-State Dance holds auditions twice a year, once in the fall semester for Winter dance and the spring semester Spring dance. Auditions for WinterDance are typically held on the Saturday after the first full week of classes at K-State. Auditions for SpringDance are typically held on the Saturday after the last day of classes for Fall semester. These dates are subject to change and you should check the Dance program homepage for updates. Once the dates and times are confirmed, we will make a posting on the web site and the Dance call board located in the basement in Nichols Hall.

Auditions are open to all K-State students and may include the following dance forms: Ballet (and Pointe), Jazz, Modern, and Tap. Students selected from these auditions will perform on the faculty concerts (WinterDance and SpringDance). Many opportunities are also available for understudies in faculty works. Quite often, understudies will end up being cast.

What to bring: the appropriate dance shoes/attire and your class schedule for availability.  Individual solos are not required for these auditions.

K-State Tap Ensemble

K-State students at any level of tap dance are encouraged to audition to become a member of the group. This ensemble provides opportunities for community outreach, performance, lecture demonstrations, and a lot fun. (Ask someone who knows about tap a grams!)
