KSU Dance Company Auditions

WEDNESDAY, January 11th 2012

6 p.m. - 9 p.m.

Dance Studio I at Chastain Pointe


The KSU Dance Company auditions are held during the first week of classes in the fall and spring semesters. 

Students must wear black dance attire to the audition and bring footwear appropriate for ballet and jazz. Women who are interested in auditioning for ballet repertory should bring pointe shoes.

Students are not required to prepare a solo combination for the audition. The audition consists of learning combinations all together and performing in smaller groups of 3-5. Students are encouraged to arrive early to facilitate a personal warm-up and stretch.

Audition Schedule:

  • Orientation/ registration
    5:00 - 5:30 p.m.
  • Warm-up

Audition results are posted outside the dance studio by 2 p.m. on the day following the audition.

Rehearsal Schedule:

Rehearsal schedules are determined according to casting and posted along with the audition results. All dance company rehearsals are scheduled Monday - Thursday between 3:30 - 9 p.m. and on Friday between 9 a.m. - 5 p.m. Students are required to list weekly availability on the audition form. Students are required to commit to only two weekly rehearsals for each piece once cast. Rehearsal schedules are determined and fixed for the duration of the semester to allow students to plan other school/work commitments.
