High School Singer/Dancer Auditions
It is Audition time!
In May we will be holding auditions for the 2022-2023 season of our three competitive groups, the All Americans, Rouge, and The Main Street Singers.
The high school audition will be a two part process. The first part will be a vocal audition and the second will be a dance audition. After all auditions are completed we will send out an e-mail with the results of the audition.
For the Vocal Audition you will need to prepare a verse and a chorus of a song that best shows off your vocal abilities. Please bring your own track or accompanist to the audition. No a capella singing will be permitted.
For the dance audition you will learn a small dance routine and perform it in front of the staff. The dance will be taught at the ETC High School Open House on April 24th, or the make-up dates on May 3rd. If you cannot make either of those dates we can send you a video of the dance for you to learn. You will then dance the audition dance in front of staff during you audition.
High School auditions will be held on the following days:
We will have a signup genius for each of the days. The days will be broken up into 1 hour blocks.
Those who are new to ETC or are auditioning to move groups, must sign up for two slots back to back. Those who are returning members only sign up for one time slot. The end of the hour block will be dedicated for dance. Every person auditioning must stay for the entire hour slot where they have their vocal and dance audition.
If you are interested in joining the ETC family please fill out the correct information form below! After you enter your information you will receive a message from Robert.Sabree@etcheidsschoolofmusicalarts.com with more information on ETC and we will answer any questions you may have.
The High School Audition time slot sign-up is now also live! Pleas be sure to READ THE DIRECTIONS AT THE TOP OF THE PAGE so you are filling out the form correctly. Also, please fill out both the audition information form and the time slot sign up.
We hope to speak to you soon!
Dance Audition dance videos:
The first video is our choreographers Tara and JJ doing the dance to the music. The second video is them breaking down the dance by counts. Then the last video is the video from open house of the entire teaching of the dance. Since you weren’t able to attend the open house and cannot attend the make-up, we would strongly suggest you watch the teaching video as well as the breakdowns. It is stated in the teaching video, but if you can learn all of the dance that is great and is preferred. If you do struggle with the first half of the dance though, you can state going into the dance audition that you will be jumping in during the second half (parts 3 and 4 that Tara speaks about in the teaching video).
Middle School Singer/Dancer Auditions
The Main Street Singers auditions will be held on May 21st from 1pm-4pm at our studio in Akron.
The audition will be a group audition where you will sing part of a prepared song in front of the director and group.
The entire group of auditioners will then learn a song from Mr. Kendall and also learn some choreography! It will be fun day for the audition where you can meet all potential members for Main Street as well as the returning members!
Please dress in apparel that you can dance in. Athletic apparel is acceptable and encouraged.
