Dancers wishing to audition for a position on one of QC’s award winning competition teams are required to attend audition classes. Dancers who are new to QC or would like class placement are encouraged to attend these classes. Audition classes are open to dancers ages 4 and up and will consist of a variety of dance genres.
Come ready for dance ; clothes and shoes (all types), hair tied back. This will be just like a class. You will have a warm up – stretch out. The instructor may do something across the floor – for example leaps and turns. Then you will learn a combination. Please come to have a GREAT time, enjoy yourself, learn and perform some Fun Dances. Dancers will be divided / evaluated by age and skill level. We will watch you dance with others in several different groups until we find the best match – the best class for you with dancers who have similar dance skills. Upon conclusion of placement classes, we will mail you a letter with your recommended class.
