Dancers will receive and email after the first set of auditions if they are requested at call backs. If you do not receive an email it does not mean you did or did not make the team. The process of call backs is for the judges to get a better sense of the dancers abilities if they did not get the chance to make a full evaluation during the first set. Dancers will perform the same routine from auditions and will participate in a short interview with the head coaches.
If you would like more information on the team or auditions, please request a 2018/2019 Information Package.
