Placement into Vibe

All those auditioning for Vibe must be at least 8 years old by Jan 2020 and have had at least 2 years of Ballet training and Jazz training.

Anyone that would like to be a member of the VIBE must audition. The audition will be held on Thursday May 21st – Time 4:30-7:30. * Subject to change due to Covid-19 There will be a second audition (if necessary) in June during the first week of summer classes for dancers who may not already be associated with DU or for those who change their mind and decide this is a path they would like to take. IF you fall in this category please contact Amy directly, amyrreed@yahoo.com.

The audition is not about “cutting” dancers but about looking at their skill and progress and then placing them into groups for the season. If Amy personally feels a dancer is not ready to be a member of VIBE she will discuss that with the dancer and parent after auditions are over.

You must be enrolled in summer classes 2020.
