Applicants to either the 2 or 4 week program who do not live within a reasonable distance to an audition site may apply by submitting an online application and a video audition. Applicants must adhere to Elevate's Video Audition Guidelines and demonstrate proficiency in ballet and modern dance. Videos that do not contain the required materials will not be viewed. Dancers can submit their videos by uploading their content to Youtube as a private video, applicants can then send the link of their video audition via e-mail to Director@elevatesummerdance.com.
Videos should include a solo no longer than 3 minutes in either Ballet, Modern or Jazz techniques. Dancers can also include 5 minutes of an additional style to the solo, i.e. Solo piece in Modern with a Ballet Barre, Centre Work and/or Enchaiment. We ask that your video submission be no longer than 10 minutes total.
Please have the dancer indicate their name, age by July 2018, height, city of residence and how many years they have studied dance.
Dancers should be dressed in neat, professional looking dance attire (i.e. leotard and tights for women; tee shirt and tights for men). Students should bring ballet shoes to the audition and wear tights that are convertible so you can be barefoot for the modern section of the audition. Women’s hair should be neat and pulled back away from the face and neck.
