Audition procedure:

Orchesis auditions are held annually at the beginning of the fall semester. We look for advanced dancers in ballet, modern, and jazz who will contribute unique qualities to the company.  Members should be prepared for a year-long commitment to the company.

Auditions are a two-fold process.  In the first round, prospective members participate in technique class and must perform a combination in a style of their choice (either ballet, jazz, or modern).  These combinations are supplied by the current officers.  There is no need to prepare a solo piece.

In the second round of auditions, prospective members learn short jazz, ballet and modern combinations, and are required to perform each of these pieces. They are judged according to their technical skill, performance and style.

The company members for the upcoming year are chosen by Orchesis advisers and officers. The officers are the only guaranteed members, therefore all other company members are required to audition each year. 

Please contact Marin Merge (orchesispsu@gmail.com) with any questions about auditions!
