RPD Preliminary Auditions
Saturday, July 11, 2009
9:00 a.m. at Toyota Center
2009-2010 RPD auditions will take place Saturday, July 11, 2009, at Toyota Center, with registration beginning at 9:00 a.m. Two to three rounds will take place July 11, and finalists are required to take part in a one to two week training camp (includes dance practice, conditioning, a professional interview, and drug/background screen), which concludes with a formal final audition.
Applicants must be at least 18 years of age and high school graduates. No formal dance experience is required, although training in dance, cheer, drill team, and/or gymnastics is strongly encouraged. Audition routines will include a mix of hip-hop, jazz, pom, and dance technique choreography. Power Dancers must be full-time students or hold full-time employment. Applicants will need to bring a non-returnable photograph (head shot or full-length), Texas Driver’s License, and a one page professional resume including dance experience to auditions. Proper attire is a two-piece top and shorts dance ensemble with tights or hose and non-marking dance/tennis shoes.

Classes are taught by Power Dancer coaches and captains. Prep classes are not mandatory to audition, but definitely give those attending an idea of what to expect at auditions.
