Ballet: Come dressed to take a ballet technique class; women should bring pointe shoes. 

Ballroom: Men are to wear a tie and nice fitting clothing.  Women are to wear a skirt or dress.  You must have dance shoes.  Must bring a partner; partner does not need to be an applicant.  You will need to supply your own music.  Must bring two separate routines.  One routine must be International Latin or American Rhythm and the other International Standard or American Smooth.  If you choose, you may substitute a Cabaret for either of the above.  Routine will be videotaped for further evaluation. 

Modern: 1 minute solo of your own choreography so that we can see your skill and experience at creating, shaping, and performing your own original movement vocabulary.  We are interested in seeing movement you have created, not movement you have learned from teachers, other choreographers, etc.  Come in dance attire that allows us to see the line of the body clearly, as you will be taking an intermediate-level modern dance technique class that will include elements of composition and improvisation.
