Students will need to arrive in a black leotard with bike shorts or tights with hair neatly pulled up into a bun. Students will have their temperatures taken before they enter the studio and will be required to wear a mask throughout the audition process. Dancers will then go to the desk for their audition number and given further instruction. Social distancing will be upheld at all times while at the studio. Parents are asked to drop off their child and pick them up after their auditions are complete. Four dancers will be allowed in the room at a time and be judged on skill sets as well a choreographed dance routine which they will receive once their on-line audition registration has been completed.
Audition registration will be available starting August 12th.

Team Meeting Date Saturday September 19th: New ESD Company team meeting will be held virtually through Zoom so we can have the opportunity to see and talk to everyone together :) Competitive Team will meet virtually at 10am and

Team Choreography: This year's choreography will be completed in weekly class rehearsal times during the months of September and October.
ESD Team Vision: What is it about mastering that first pirouette or aerial that feels so good? Is it the confidence that comes from learning a new skill? The camaraderie that develops when you practice — and sometimes fail — together? Or is it something more? At ESD dancers play, dance, learn and compete in ways that will make them stronger, healthier, and more self-assured in dance and in life. We will help them get there with a little more fun, a little more skill, and a little more confidence. Our year will not be based on attending multiple competitions because we all are aware that may or may not happen. We will cross the bridges as they come with conversation and solid information and decide as a Team what feels best for us. Our Team will grow in a new way this year and for that we are excited...truly dancing from a different outlook, and learning more about ourselves and maturing along the way.
ESD Contract is being reformatted at this time and, will be posted upon completion.
