Auditions are simply in the form of a ‘master class’ at Lavrova Dance Complex. Dancers are not required to prepare their own routines beforehand. Dancers will be asked to take class along with others of the same age, but perhaps different levels of dance ability. Classes will be taught by an instructor and may consist of barre work, centre work, traveling steps, learning short combinations, etc.
Auditions will be held for specific age groups, and for all dance disciplines within each age group. Dancers must attend the audition class for each discipline they are interested in dancing competitively in next year: Ballet, Jazz, Lyrical, Contemporary.
There will be one audition for jazz, lyrical, and contemporary, and a separate audition for ballet only.
Dancers must attend the audition class for the age group listed below that matches the dancer’s age as of December 31st, 2016.
LEVEL 1 | 6-8 yrs.
LEVEL 2 | 9-11yrs.
LEVEL 3 | 12-14yrs.
LEVEL 4 | 15-18yrs.
Dancers should arrive 30 minutes early to sign-in (they should have already submitted an audition form to pre-register) and receive their name tag. Please arrive on time, prepared and in uniform with all shoes and be ready to dance!
- Register before May 14, 2016, and there will be no charge for the audition

Should the instructors wish to see dancers audition again with a different group, dancers should also be prepared to stay for another audition.
For all auditions, hair should be up and off the face. Buns are required for Ballet.
Ballet: Black bodysuit, pink tights and ballet slippers.
Jazz & Lyrical & Contemporary: Black bodysuit, black jazz shorts, jazz shoes and dance paws (foot undeez).
*Current Lavrova Dance students are expected to wear the company team wear when arriving to the audition
After the auditions, dancers will be contacted with their placement results, and possible offers of acceptance into the Company Division, as well as offers for solos and duos. Please be sure to include up-to-date email addresses and phone numbers to ensure we can contact you.
Registration for the Company Division for 2016/17 year will begin June 2nd.
To secure a place in one of our dance programs, a deposit will be required and solo/duo will also need to be registered for. Please Note: The registration deadline for 2016/17 Company program, solos, and duos is June 15th, 2016. If you miss this deadline and still would like to be considered for our company division, you will be required to attend a private 30 minutes audition for a $30 fee. The final deadline for all company registration is August 1, 2016.
Prior to registering for one of these programs, dancers and their parents must agree to adhere to, and sign, a Lavrova Dance Company Agreement (copies are available at the Dance Co office). The expectations of dancers are clearly laid out in this agreement, and we take them very seriously. If you plan to register for our Competitive program, it is very important to note that March, April and May are all very intense months, as this is when most competitions and exams will occur.
