Join the Fun - Audition to be Part of One of our Many Companies and Troupes

Mark your calendars for April 21. All of our companies and troupes will be holding auditions for the 18-19 season.  Whether you love ballet or hip hop, have been dancing for a few years or more than 10, there is something for you. 

Online registrations are now closed.  You may still come in to the studio to register on audition day. We recommend coming early as some of our auditions are almost at capacity.

To make the process go as smoothly as possible, we ask that you:

  • Complete the form below. This will be collected at registration and given along with your headshot to the judges.
  • Please come early to check in!  You can come as early as an hour before your scheduled audition time. Auditions will start on time. You do not want to miss your audition if you are still in line to check in.
  • Please come with a pre-filled check or exact change to expedite payment.
  • If you are auditioning for more than one company/troupe, be sure to bring a printed headshot and form for every audition you will be participating in. The only exception is HCJC Pre-pro. While you must audition in your age group as well as for pre-pro, only one headshot and form is needed.

We look forward to seeing you on Saturday!

Please note: do not park behind the building (the lot along the student lounge/kitchen side of the building). Our neighbors will no longer allow us to use that parking lot. Your car could be towed.  

Important information for Musical Theater Auditions

There will be a summer program and an 18-19 Season Program. Students can choose to participate in one or both.  

To be considered for a leading or supporting role in the musical, students should prepare 24-32 measures from a broadway song. Choose something that displays your vocal strengths and styling. You may use our accompanist, but make sure you bring properly marked sheet music. A CD player / Ipod dock will be available to play accompaniment tracks. Please, no ‘a cappella’ singing.

If you want to be considered for an ensemble role you will need to sing a segment from one of the two listed below:

 'Somewhere Over the Rainbow' from The Wizard of Oz. 
Listen to the link (from :00 to :44).
Song Lyrics can be found here.

 'One Perfect Moment' from Bring It On the Musical.
Listen to the link (from :36 to 1:37)
Song lyrics can be found here.
