The solo needs to be around 2-3 minutes and showcase any genre of dance you feel best demonstrates your performance skills. Keep in mind that our program focuses on modern/contemporary....but if you perform more strongly in ballet or hip hop, etc, it is fine to do your solo in another genre. The solo needs to be your own choreography. We have an aux cord for your music. Music is optional.
*Live auditions are preferable, but If traveling to San Marcos presents a reasonable burden for you (out of state or international), please contact Michelle Nance, Director of Dance at firstname.lastname@example.org for arrangements for a video audition.
