AUDITIONS FOR DANCERS - Christmas show 2021/2

We are putting out a call to all talented young ladies who aspire to perform, to attend an audition for this seasons forthcoming Christmas Show, which opens on Wednesday 27th October and will run weekly until 1st January 2022. We are looking for dancers aged 15+ who are strong in all aspects of dance that preferably can sing well also.
The auditions will be held at the Babbacombe Theatre on Sunday 12th September. The auditions will commence at 11am, doors will be open from 10.30am and all dancers are requested to register no later than 10.45am. The senior dance auditions will enable us to ensure that the strong standard expected from our dancers can be met. Dancers will all need to have experience in ballet, jazz, contemporary and modern dance and will need to bring their own dance shoes.

The routines set by the choreographer will incorporate these styles. Dancers should be between 5ft 3ins and 5ft 10ins. It is preferred the dancers have a good singing voice and those wishing to audition are invited to sing if they choose to do so, although it is not essential. It’s worth noting those wanting to sing will need to provide their own backing tracks.

Please be aware that those dancers still in full time education will need to be licenced by their respective local council and will require written confirmation from their school for authorised absences, as there are eight weekly matinee performances during the school term, every Wednesday. Some of the rehearsal’s dates will fall during term time, but authorised absences will be required for 2 full days. On most weeks there will be an evening performance as well as the matinee. In total there are 21 performances which include Boxing Day and New Year’s Day. A full diary of the rehearsal and show dates is available upon request, albeit they are attached on the THIS LINK below.
