Dance Repertory to Hold Auditions for 2005-06


June 13, 2005 -- Auditions for the 2005-06 Collin County Community College District (Collin) Dance Repertory are scheduled for 10 a.m., Saturday, Aug. 20.

Auditions are set for the Spring Creek Campus Dance Studio, room AA146, 2800 E. Spring Creek Parkway in Plano.

The Dance Repertory is a company that performs modern dance around the Metroplex at local concerts and festivals such as The Dallas Dance Festival, Dances at a Gathering and Movement, Minds and Magic. The group also attends and performs at the American College Dance Festival, at which they have received the Gala Award four times.

The Dance Repertory also hosts the annual Dance Fusion and an April concert, in addition to performing at men’s and women’s basketball games. Dance Repertory members also have the opportunity of working with professional dance companies.

To audition, students must be enrolled at Collin either part-time or full-time for the 2005-06 school year. Students must arrive early to the audition as there will not be a warm-up opportunity and should attend the audition prepared to dance. Those auditioning should wear appropriate dance clothing. Ballet slippers and jazz shoes may be worn to the audition.

There are not a pre-set number of individuals which will be accepted. At the audition, dancers will be taught three different movement combinations focusing on different movement qualities. No solo routines will be needed.

Audition judges will look for strong technique, individuality, strong performance qualities and the ability of the individual to take risks.

If selected, Dance Repertory members must register for dance performance, Modern Technique and Ballet Technique for the fall 2005 semester. Repertory rehearsals are on Tuesdays and Thursdays, from 2:30-5:30 p.m. For selected company members, Friday rehearsals are scheduled from 1-5 p.m.
