3 Upcoming International ‘Dance Journey’ Program Open Auditions That You Shouldn’t Miss
We have been on the America Tour for this past month. What an incredible experience! Panama City, Mexico City, Atlanta, Dallas, Cali, Bogota, and now Medellin. Lima is our last stop. We’ve met so many beautiful people that we don’t want the tour to end.
One of our greatest pleasures when touring is to also hold Open Auditions, meet friendly people and discover new talents for the Int’l ‘Dance Journey’ Study Abroad Program, where aspiring dancers and students can join us in the International Dance Village for a semester or for a full academic year to deepen and improve their dance practice with the best teachers, dancers, and choreographers.
The auditions for the Dance Journey program consist of ballet (warm-up) and company repertoire. There is no need to prepare a solo piece, so less stress for you. Once accepted, you will be able to choose if you want to attend the 5-month or the 10-month program and reserve your spot.

If you can’t attend our open auditions live, you can always send us your video audition and we’ll carefully revise it and let you know the result. It should be a 3-minute video that shows you at your highest level and displays your technical abilities and skills as a dancer. Your video should include ballet exercises from the bar, center and corner. Make sure that the center exercise includes an adagio and a pirouette exercise from the corner as well as a grand allegro exercise. In addition, include a modern exercise that shows your technique and improvisation in space
