Congratulations on an amazing audition on Saturday night 17 June. We had a large group of talented students perform at a very high level. It was so encouraging to see such outstanding work.
what happens now
Students who had a successful audition will be made an offer of a role. There are lead roles, minor roles and supporting roles on offer this year. The panel of judges all got together to decide on each role offered. Each role needed to get a minimum of 4 votes to be considered. Please check your emails for your offer. Not everyone will be receiving an offer this year.
Who is suitable
There are limitations on who is able to accept a role. Although you may be the correct age level, you may not be ready for this rigorous process.
Lead roles will be rehearsed on Monday afternoon's between 3:45pm and 8:15pm or by appointment, after the exams are complete. They will be organised on a rotational basis. No one would be required for that entire time. But they need to make that time available when/if necessary, as per the roster that will be published in term 3.
Role holders need to be super responsible, easy going and fun to work with students. It is a big responsibility and emotional, flighty and difficult students won't thrive in this environment. They need to keep records (digital or written) of what they are learning. They need to manage their timetable well. They need to make dance a big priority for term 4.
Not everyone is suitable for a role and not everyone's family timetable would suit this responsibility. Please consider ALL of the obligations before proceeding with this.
Finally, the emotional investment required to handle a role maybe too much for your student to handle. If you believe your student would not cope with the responsibility, please don't accept your role.
Students are required to promote, encourage and support any students that do accept their roles. Every year there are students who decide to run down, discourage or disagree with the audition panels decisions. Any students who are not willing to promote, encourage or support their peers will be excluded from the roles - even if they have previously accepted them.
