Please remember that your dancer is to wear all black, pink tights, and hair in a bun. We want to make this process as stress-free as possible, to help us with this, make sure that you arrive 20 minutes before your scheduled audition time, this will give your dancer time to breathe, grab their number and continue to warm themselves up.
