AUDITION FOR YDI KALAMAZOO
YDI is designed to supplement training with a dance school of choice for dancers in grades 9-12. Potential members must audition for placement into the program. Upon auditioning, those who demonstrate technical excellence will be invited to an interview with the director. Parents are required to attend the second half of the interview. In 2020, the company will meet on Saturdays in Kalamazoo, MI where members will participate in contemporary classes, followed by rehearsals and/or seminars. An annual membership fee is required with a 6-month contract, in which the contract period focuses on building a unique contemporary dance concert to be presented in January.
