What do I need to bring to the audition?
When you register, by emailing, you will receive a response with a registration form and participation waiver. Complete these and bring them with you on May 30th. The registration form mentions including a photo. Please note this can be a casual picture you or a friend took– it is just to help put a face to a name.

What should I wear?
Arrive warmed up and dressed professionally in dance or fitness attire. You may choose to wear ballet shoes, jazz shoes, dance paws or bare feet.

What is the structure of the audition?

The audition will consist of a modern dance based technique class, movement improvisation, repertoire and a brief interview. Sign in is at 10:30am and the audition begins at 11:00am. Depending on the number of participants, a preliminary cut may take place following the technique class (approx 12:00pm) and/or prior to interviews (approx. 1:00pm). The structure is subject to change based on the number of participants.

Who is adjudicating the Audition?
The adjudicators are Sarah Lochhead (Artistic Director), company member Kasha Pinel and possibly one choreographer who will be working with the company in the near future.

Is there an audition fee?
NO. A dance audition is like a job interview so you are NOT required to pay a fee. In fact, as our way of saying thanks, all audition participants will receive an exclusive offer for workshops/classes held by Simcoe Contemporary Dancers this summer.

I live outside of Simcoe County. Should I attend?
Absolutely. Auditions are a good experience and a FREE dance class. It is also a great chance to meet other artists in the area and network. Keep in mind that rehearsals are being held in Barrie and our fall performances are Barrie and neighbouring communities.

I am interested but I cannot make it to the audition. Can I submit a video
It is preferable to attend the audition in person, however arrangements can be made to send a video. Please contact us via email for details.
