Judges will place dancers in a level (1-6) in each style which will determine where they dance over the summer. Dancers must attend the audition for their age group, but may be asked to come earlier by faculty members or stay later by judges if we feel it is a better fit.

These auditions will only determine each dancer’s level and their placement in summer classes. We will hold separate casting auditions on Friday, August 25th. Dancers not present at this audition will not be allowed to participate in competition pieces choreographed by Ryann (in addition to any other choreographers who wish to add their name to this list).

Audition classes will be taught be BESD faculty members, but judged by teachers/dancers from outside the studio.

Over the summer, levels 4-6 dance from 10:00am-2:00pm and levels 1-3 dance from 2:00pm-6:00pm (unless we decide to split into three levels).
