JUNE 2nd – auditions for 2018-19 COMPANY

Interested in auditioning for GADA’s DANCE Company?!

COMPANY PHILOSOPHY

The company was created to give zealous dancers a chance to experience MORE!… more performances, more choreography, more styles, more responsibility, more commitment and more art. To me, dance is an art form first and foremost. I respect the athletic endeavors it can include, but I think something is lost in the magic of dance when it is treated solely as a sport. I want dancers to grow and gain technique, BUT I want them to also grow as artists and learn what it means to create and express. In order to meet that goal, I create opportunities each year that I think will enrich our dancers. Next year’s opportunities include:

  • SUMMER CLASSES (two weekly classes required through summer – when in town – ballet is required to be one of the classes, summer series is suggested as second class, but open for negotiationJ)
  • SUMMER INTENSIVE (JULY 31-AUG 3)
  • SUMMER CASTING AUDITION – Saturday, August 12th
  • SATURDAY REHEARSALS (classes/ rehearsals will begin August 19th for the year.)
  • SOLO opportunities for those interested (choreography costs apply)
  • MASTER CLASSES (Summer/Fall/Spring master class with touring casts and companies TBD.)
  • DANCEMAKERS CONVENTION (San Antonio Dec 1-3)
  • SPRING CONCERT (Aiming for mid-April weekend – TBD)
  • DANCE EXCELLENCE CONVENTION (Aprl 1-7th LA, Calif and Disneyland performance – optional)
  • SPRING GADA RECITAL

CASTING

Students will be accepted (or not) into the general company at May auditions. Students will then carry through summer class requirements, attend intensive, etc. A separate casting audition will be held in August right before fall rehearsals begin (SATURDAY, AUG 12th). THIS IS A REQUIRED SATURDAY. Being part of company DOES NOT guarantee being cast in a certain amount of dances.

*Being part of company DOES NOT guarantee being cast in a certain amount of dances.

REHEARSALS

Dancers are expected to attend all scheduled rehearsals. IF you must miss a rehearsal, dancers must notify sally ASAP in writing (paper or email is fine) and MORE than a week’s notice. MISSING MORE THAN 2 SATURDAYS each semester (sept-dec and jan-april) is not allowed, and will result in being taken out of some, if not all, pieces.

Dress rehearsals are mandatory (missed DRESS rehearsal which is the rehearsal before a performance = missed performance, no exceptions)

Students are expected to practice choreography at home between rehearsals. Choreography should not have to be re-taught.   If a student misses a rehearsal, it is their responsibility to get caught up with a fellow dancer BEFORE the next rehearsal takes place. We try to post youtube practice videos for the dancers to use to practice with.

COSTS

For the company, expenses are rolled into one lump sum and then divided it into equal payments made June 2017-May 2018. It is estimated to cost $90 per month IN ADDITION to monthly tuition (all company dancers must take at last one tap, ballet, and jazz class each week).

  • Summer classes both session – 2 classes in each session $126 +$126
  • Summer Intensive $225
  • Saturday rehearsals (based on $25 each month) rehearsals $250
  • Costume rental fee $100
  • DanceMAKERS Convention $250
  • Total average estimated costs 2017-18 season = $90/month   JUNE – MAY 2018
**NOT INCLUDED DanceMakers Hotel costs, DanceMakers entry fees, Dance Excellence trip payments, solo choreography fees
