Preparing for in-person vocal auditions
These auditions will be in a solo setting with two faculty members present. The SHOW embraces all music styles. Prepare a piece that you are comfortable singing that displays your vocal strengths. It doesn’t need to be complicated. Aim to keep it to 90 seconds in length.
Please bring your own accompaniment for your song. You can bring an mp3 on your mobile device or tablet. Before entering the audition room, please remove your phone case and unlock your phone/tablet. If you have an iPhone that requires the apple dongle adapter, bring this in too.
We recommend that you find a karaoke track to sing with, rather than the original tracks of artists or bands. There is no wifi on site so do not plan to stream from YouTube. You can purchase karaoke tracks here or search for them on music player apps such as Apple Music or Spotify.
Preparing for in-person dance auditions
All dance auditions take place in a class setting, and we’ll show you what to do. Please wear form-fitting clothing that you are able to dance in, so we can see your movements clearly. You can wear jazz shoes or runners to this class.
Our company is an elite core of aspiring professional dancers and/or singers. Ideal for advanced performers or those graduating from other dance programs. Join and train with other like-minded and skilled performers, engage in professional performances at high-profile events, and take part in our music video series. Let us elevate your performance abilities and grow your dance and vocal skills, so you can switch from dance to vocal and back again.
The SHOW is an auditioned nine-month training and performance commitment to mastering your own unique artistry. This program is designed for advanced dancers ages 16 to 25. Diversify your movement versatility and improve your technique by exploring multiple styles of training and choreography with an incredible faculty. Take your voice from good to killer with soulful group harmony sessions and meticulous one-on-one training in vocal technique. Whatever skills you bring, the SHOW will further develop them, so you can perform in a confident and charismatic style that is all your own.
If your dream is to sing and dance on stage, we encourage you to apply. We are looking for dedicated young artists with a desire to grow and to excel. This is performing arts training with a difference.
