From my roommate and friend Stellar Levy ’15 and her dlf (dance lady friend) Tess Jonas ’15:

Spring Dance Auditions have been rescheduled! HOORAY. Hopefully this time there won’t be another blizzard… You know the drill:

Love to dance? Never Danced before? Want credit for dancing? Want to be part of student choreography? Want to help out the dance majors? Want to perform in the ’92? Want to make friends?

If you are at all interested in any of these things, come audition for Spring Dance! No experience necessary, just come ready to move.

Come to EITHER session one from 5:00-6:00 pm, OR session two from 6:15-7:15 pm.

Precision (Troupe and Ensemble) Auditions

From Stellar Levy ’15 who copied and pasted this from the FB event:

Know those three kids in hats dancing their asses off to Dance (Ass)? Know those ten girls who bounced with sass to Valerie?

Well, we want you.

If you are a dancer, like to dance, or think you can dance, come audition for Precision, a collective with two equally awesome sides (Ensemble and Troupe) looking for new members. You can audition for either or both!

Ensemble is a group whose dancers put on, dance in, and choreograph for a yearly performance in the spring. The style is generally contemporary, but we’ve been known to throw in some ballet, jazz, and whatever else comes to mind.

Troupe is a hip-hop group whose dancers also put on, perform in, and choreograph for a performance each semester.

Date: Saturday, October 6
Time: Troupe audition 4-5 pm, Ensemble audition 5-6 pm
Place: Schonberg Dance Studio (on Pine St.)

No matter what kind of dance experience you have or what style you like, there will be a piece in our show for you. For more the more technical dancers, there is also Terp Core, which is a permanent group of dancers who organize the show, provide choreographic advice, and choreograph a dance to conclude the performance with a bang.
