Jr. Company & Company Auditions
** Friday, August 6th, 5-7pm **
The Macholah Ballet Jr. and Sr. Company program is a group of dancers ages 12 and up who wish to use their gift of dance to minister the Gospel of Jesus Christ. It is an audition based program where participants receive training in all styles of dance and cultivate ministry-minded performing. Company members take part in our annual Christmas ballet: The Nativity, a spring show that takes place in conjunction with Recital, as well as appearances throughout the community!
In this Audition, you will be placed in one of the following levels:
All level Company dancers are automatically placed for The Nativity.
Requirements for all levels of Company members:
- Must take the required technique/pointe classes AND a supplement class of your choosing (i.e. Tap, Contemporary, Jazz)
- Must maintain excellent class and rehearsal attendance. Company members get three excused passes per semester.
Students will be notified by mail where they have been place. Students will need to sign a contract and students will need to provide a short bio and a Pastor recommendation letter. (Not necessary if a returning Company member.)
If paperwork is not received by the first day of classes, the student’s spot will be considered forfeited and student may not re-audition until the next year.
Placement Class will include ballet barre and center work, pointe work (appropriate to current level) and a short individual interview.
Please arrive 10-15 minutes early to stretch, prepare and get a number.
Company members will perform throughout the year in community performances, The Nativity Christmas Program, and will open the end-of-year Spring Recital.
