How Should I Prepare for My Audition?
K-8th Grade Students should plan to come to the Main Street Dance Works Studio to audition.
- Be prepared to sing a Broadway song of your choice. You may provide accompaniment but it is not a requirement.
- We will not have time to hear the whole song from beginning to end.
- Be prepared to match pitch with a "C" scale.
- If time allows, there will be a movement audition.
- If time allows, we may ask you to read text. We will provide that.
The last audition date is currently Sept. 1 at Main Street Dance Works.
- The audition will probably take 10 minutes if we are on schedule.
- Prepare a song of your choice. You may bring accompaniment in MP3 format. No pianist will be available. You may sing a cappella.

K-8th grade classes meet on Saturdays from 10:00-12:00. There may be a few extra practices closer to performance time.
Students in the troupe will work together to produce a 60-minute play .
Students in grades 6th through 12th usually produce a musical. For the Sept - Dec 2019 session, we are producing a play without signing or dancing, a cabaret night where each student can sing a solo song, and students will have the opportunity to be play an adult in the opening party scene of MSDW's presentation of "The Nutcracker" at CPCC's Halton Theatre.
Practice times are Sundays from 2:30-5:30. There may be some Wednesday evening practices closer to performance time.
