Ballet at 10am-11:30am – August 26, 2017
Ballet, jazz/contemporary, and modern placement are all determined at our ballet audition. Dancers will do a full barre and center work. Placement in any CYDP Dance Company jazz/contemporary and/or modern class requires at least 2 ballet classes per week as part of the curriculum.

Tap at 12pm-12:45pm – August 26, 2017
Dancers will be given drills across the floor to assess skill level, accuracy, speed, and musicality. Tap dancers are not required to attend the ballet audition, as tap can be taken as a single subject.
