Bare feet are also permitted only for the contemporary portion of the audition. No street clothes or street shoes. Long hair should be kept pulled away from the face. Remove any dangling jewelry.

 

Q: Are pointe shoes a requirement for acceptance into the program? 

A: No.

 

Q: What can I expect at the audition? 

A: Plan to arrive at the audition thirty to forty minutes early so that you have ample time to warm up. Our audition consists: 1st – Full ballet Class; 2nd – Learning the repertoire from the Company; 3rd – Interview with Artistic Director.

 

Q: How will I be evaluated?

A: The Artistic Director and faculty member expects to see work that best highlights your physical capacity as a dancer and your ability to work with the demands of professional training.

 

Q: When will I know the results of my audition? 

A: Students will be notified of their results by email one week after your audition date. 

 

Q: Is there any additional paperwork for scholarship consideration? 

A: No. All students who audition are automatically considered for talent-based scholarships within the program. Due to limited funding, Lamondance typically waits until after the auditions are complete to make final scholarship offers. In rare circumstances, the program makes immediate scholarship offers to auditioners who are of exceptional talent.

 

Q: What another financial aid is available? 

A: Applications for bursary funding are open to all. For eligibility and submission details, Please e-mail info@lamondance.com for more information.
