Wild Bunch Audition Prep Classes*

Get ready for Wild Bunch Dance Team auditions by attending our prep classes and mock auditions on September 27 and 29! Meet Wild Bunch staff and alumni and Learn Audition Choreography in Advance!! Dancers interested in auditioning for the Wild Bunch can learn choreography from the actual audition routine, participate in a mock audition, and receive feedback from a member of the judging panel! Two different combos, taken from the preliminary audition routine, will be taught (one 4 eight-count combo per prep class). Don’t miss this opportunity to perfect the choreography before the big day!

While you must be at least 18 years old to audition for the Wild Bunch, anyone 16 or older may participate in the Audition Prep Classes and Mock Auditions. (Dancers under 18 years of age will need to have a parent or guardian present to sign a waiver on their behalf.)This provides a great opportunity to learn more about the Wild Bunch dance program and get a head start on future auditions by gaining valuable dance and performance skills from the Wild Bunch.

The cost of each prep class is $15. The cost of each mock audition is $20. Space in the mock audition is limited to the first 20 paid participants. Early registration is highly recommended (we sold out both classes last year!), but walk up registration will be available on a first come, first serve basis (CASH ONLY).
