The Audition Process

The audition will take place in two parts: individual and group.  During your individual audition you will present a Performance. After all auditioning dancers have completed their individual auditions, you will complete the Improvisation and Quick Study portion together with the group.  The entire audition process should take about 60 to 90 minutes, and you should be prepared to stay for the full duration of the audition.

 

Throughout the process your attitude and your ability to work with the group, as well as your openness and your reception to constructive criticism will be assessed.

If you’re ready to push yourself and become part of this professional dance company, we would love to see you this year. For more information about Seraka, please visit our Facebook page, or our website to read up on our dancers, performances, and style.
