AUDITION – WHY AND HOW
The relative level at a dance camp is often unpredictable. Auditions help to get more even groups and create a better learning environment. At the audition you will be asked to social dance with people who signed up for the same level as you. The teachers will assign you in groups with roughly the same dance level. We know a lot of people don’t like auditions, but you’ll be fine, we promise. Just stick to the basics, smile and relax, you should only dance as you always do on the social dance floor, not fancier or better than you do normally.
There possibility to change levels will be livmited. This goes for both both levels up and down. We aim to keep an even lead/follow ratio, and groups at a reasonable size. Read the level descriptions and choose wisely…
