For the Dance Audition, we will teach a short combination and then have you perform it in groups. The goal is to see how well you move, not to be a prima ballerina. Please come in comfortable clothing and wear (or bring) shoes that you can move in. PLEASE BRING A LIST OF ALL OF YOUR CONFLICTS TO AUDITIONS.

Show Synopsis:

The classic story tells of Belle, a young woman in a provincial town, and the Beast, who is really a young prince trapped under the spell of an enchantress. If the Beast can learn to love and be loved, the curse will end and he will be transformed into his former self. But time is running out. If the Beast does not learn his lesson soon, he and his household will be doomed for all eternity.
