WinterDance 2018 auditions
Saturday August 25, 2018, 9:00 am, Nichols Studio 008
WinterDance/SpringDance will feature jazz, modern, tap, and West African dance. Auditions are open to all K-State students. Prior experience is preferred but not required. Students should arrive by 9 a.m. to warm up and turn in audition materials (pdf). Casting is often based on schedules, so auditioning students will need to have their weekly schedule with them. The audition packet below will need to be completed and returned to the audition. Hard copies will also be available.
Held in Mark A. Chapman Theatre (Formerly Nichols Theatre), a "thrust" theatre in Nichols Hall, is where the dance program calls home. Experiencing WinterDance in this intimate setting is a wonderful way to come inside form the cold and warm up to a dance performance. Typically held the first weekend in December, WinterDance runs Thursday through Saturday with a matinee on Saturday.

Auditions are open to all K-State students and may include the following dance forms:
- Tap, and
- African styles.
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 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!)
