Dance Theatre Arlington to Form 2016-2017 Dance Company

Dance Theater Arlington (DTA) will be finalizing its 2016-17 dance company later this month. Don't miss out on trying out to be part of this great group. Take note of the following important dates.

Fri, Aug 12 - 5:30pm
Informational Meeting for anyone wishing to audition for DTA (one parent required) They will explain their mission, calendar, costs, time commitment etc.

Sat, Aug 13 - 10:30am - 12:00pm
Prep Class where you will learn a combination that will be required of those auditioning. The prep classes also give any dancer who has not danced all summer a chance to "get back into the swing" and also gives DTA a chance to see how you learn and take correction.

Mon, Aug 15 - 5:30pm - 7:00pm
Another Prep Class to teach/review the audition combination.

Tues, Aug 16
The actual AUDITION Registration begins at 6pm. Audition class begins at 6:30pm. Auditions start with a ballet class - barre and center floor before performing the actual combination taught during the two prep classes.

DTA Companies learn repertoire in tap, ballet, jazz and musical theatre. Dance skills in these genres are needed to present the pieces performed throughout the year at local festivals like Kountry Karnival at St Maria Goretti and our Elf shows (which kick off with a performance at Disneyworld). Company members may also learn contemporary, lyrical or hip hop pieces throughout the year. DTA does not audition singers, the dancers will learn to sing if they don't already know how.
