Mill Creek Dance Auditions

On January 30, Mill Creek is holding dance auditions in the theater for the 2019-20 school year. The auditions will last from 2:30 to 4:00 p.m. for current Mill Creek students, and the auditions for rising freshmen are from 4:30 to 7:00 p.m.

According to the Mill Creek website, students who are auditioning need to bring “dance shoes” of any type. The girls should wear a leotard and tights or yoga pants and a t-shirt, and the boys should wear dark sweat pants and a t-shirt.

Students don’t need to prepare a dance for the audition.

“All audition material will be taught on the day of the audition,” Diana Kim, a senior involved in the dance program, said.

Instead of preparing something for the audition, students will go through three different portions of the audition.

“There will be a warm-up section, across the floor combinations, and a brief dance in the center,” Kim said. “Dancers should be prepared to perform and have fun.”

Dancers shouldn’t worry too much if they make a mistake during the audition process.

“Smile big, and if you mess up, just start again,” Kim said. “All dancers make mistakes now and then, and one mistake won’t mess you up.”
