Auditions

Orem Dance Company

ODC Audition Packets usually become available in April. To receive notice that packets are available, please sign up here.

FAQ:

  • Who can audition?
    • Auditions are open to incoming Freshmen-Seniors.
  • What if I’m out of town or injured?
    • Video auditions may be accepted, depending on the situation.
  • What does the packet include?
    • Packets should be filled out as professionally as possible and include the following: Headshot, Dancer Information, Liability & Media Use Release, Contract of Commitment, Statement of Intent, Letters of Recommendation. Packets are taken into account when determining dancer selection. A poorly completed packet would be detrimental to a dancers’ audition score.
  • When and how long is the ODC audition?
    • ODC auditions take place over three days, with a workshop on Tuesday and the actual audition on Thursday. The 2019-2020 Audition is scheduled for May 14-16, 2019.
    • A Parent & Student Pre-Audition Information Meeting will be held on May 5, 2020.
  • What does the audition include?
    • We are looking for technically skilled, artistic dancers trained in contemporary and hip hop dance. The audition will include style and across-the-floor sequences, as well as improvisation and a self-choreographed solo.
  • How many dancers do you accept each year?
    • There is no real answer to this question, as we do not have a set quota of spots on the company. We often have different class sizes which means a variable amount of graduating seniors from year to year. Each audition is different, but we do like to keep the company between 18 and 24 members.

2019-2020 Packet– For reference only. Audition packets for the 2021-2022 school year will be posted around March.

Please contact Ms. Alley with any other questions you may have.

  • What does the audition include?
    • We are looking for any dancers interested in ballroom, or with a ballroom training background. The audition will include syllabus style and Line of Dance, as well as 30 seconds of solo or partner choreography in any ballroom style.
  • How many dancers do you accept each year?
    • There is no real answer to this question, as we do not have a set quota of spots on the company. We often have different class sizes which means a variable amount of graduating seniors from year to year. Each audition is different, but we do like to keep the team around 16-20 members.
  • Do you cast an equal amount of guys and girls?
    • Not necessarily. We will take any dancer who earns a spot on the team. We will often have more girls than guys. However, we believe that every dancer on team deserves a chance to perform our pieces. This means that we will alternate between counterparts at our various competitions, and every dancer will perform the piece at some point throughout the run of the concert.
  • Do I have to bring a partner to audition?
    • Not necessarily, although you should encourage any interested friends to come audition as well!
