AUDITION INFORMATION

SCHEDULE-UPDATED*

This season, our auditions will look different than previous years. Due to the restrictions of COVID-19, we will be having a hybrid audition process! Our new audition process will be completed in 3 Steps. 

1. Informational Zoom Meeting

We will host an informative Zoom meeting on Sunday, August 2nd at 2 PM Central Time. During this Zoom, the TCU Elite coaches, captains and previous members will discuss the new audition process and answer any questions about the team. To receive the link for the Zoom call, fill out the form on the Homepage. If you are having trouble with the form, feel free to email us at elitedance.tcu@gmail.com! We are so excited to meet all of you!

2. Audition Material Submission

After having the Zoom call, we will upload the audition material to our website along with linking it in all of our social media sites. The audition material will consist of a 1 minute stylized, technical dance and across the floor technique. We ask that you learn the material and video yourself doing it. At the beginning of your video, please briefly introduce yourself stating your name, where you're from, your grade, and major. To audition, we require a $25 audition fee that you can send via Venmo to our Finance Director Sydney Johnson (@sydneyjohnson830). Along with your videos, you will submit a completed audition packet. The audition packet includes: a filled in audition application, your current TCU transcript (if incoming freshman/ transfer student, please attach your acceptance letter), your Fall 2020 class schedule, a signed liability form, and a photo of yourself. If you would like to provide supplemental videos of your previous dance performances, please feel free to add those to your submission. Your video submissions and completed audition packet should be submitted to a personal Box account folder.** We will not review any submission until all required components are submitted to Box.

AUDITION SUBMISSIONS ARE DUE FRIDAY, AUGUST 28th at 11:59 PM.

3. In-person Callbacks: UPDATED**

Due to the rising number of COVID-19 cases on campus and day-to-day uncertainty, we have made the decision to NOT hold in-person callbacks. With that being said, we are taking great care to review all submissions and make our final team decision from there. We apologize for the late change of plans, but we want to ensure that all audition applicants and judges are safe at this time. The 2020-2021 team will be announced early next week! Thank you again for your continued understanding during this time!
