How Do I Audition?

You may virtually audition for both companies or only one. Callbacks will be face to face. Fill out the State Dance Company Form and/or the Panoramic Dance Project Form online before Friday, August 20, 2021. No auditions will be accepted after this date.

There is a place to upload a video on each form.

Video Audition Requirements: This section may include combinations from dance classes, a choreographed solo, improvised movement, etc. Movement can be in any dance style, a variety of dance styles and be self or instructor choreographed (or a combination of both).

Length: Please note that the video should not exceed three minutes in length.

Format: Your audition video may be submitted via video form by pasting a link to a shared video (ie. YouTube) into the form. To ensure your privacy, it is suggested to upload your video to online platforms as “unlisted.” This will enable us to view the video, but not allow others to find it via the search.
