Audition Information

Auditions FAQ

My child is out of town for some of the audition classes. Is that ok?
We schedule audition classes to last for several days/weeks so that dancers are able to attend most of the classes scheduled.  Please remind the studio of dates your child will be absent before auditions begin.
Which age group should I sign my child up for?
Ages/Grades listed for audition classes are as of September 1st.
Can tuition/fees for auditions be pro-rated if my child is not able to attend all of the classes?
Tuition & fees will not be pro-rated for auditions.  It may be possible for them to take some make up classes, however.  We are able to pro-rate tuition for pre-audition classes if your child cannot attend all of the classes for the pre-audition session.
Does my dancer need to receive a recommendation to audition for a competitive team?
WDC instructors will send out some recommendations to dancers they believe are ready to audition for a competitive team.  However, a recommendation is not required to sign up for auditions.
When is the Audition Registration Deadline?
There is no deadline to register and payment is due at the time of registration.
