About Our Audition:

At auditions, dancers will learn a new 4-6 eight count combo that they will have to perform in groups for our panel judges. Dancers will be evaluated on their ability to pick up choreography, technique and performance/showmanship. Not every dancer who auditions will make the team. However, there is no minimum or maximum number of dancers that INNOVATION can accept.


From Another Dance Team:

All students auditioning from another company must perform a 1-3 minute solo.  Please bring solo music in mp3 format on phone, iPod, tablet, etc.  A solo time sign-up sheet will be provided at arrival.
