Dancers Wanted!

Are you in 4th or 5th grade? Do you want to learn how to dance? Come audition for the Prairie View Dance Company. Spaces are limited! Online application deadline is Jan. 29th.

We are excited to announce the Prairie View Elementary Dance Company. The Dance Company will learn both traditional and innovative forms of dance and then perform as an ensemble at the Talent Show in April. All interested students must both apply AND audition for the company.

Requirements for Participation

  1. Students must submit an online Dance Company Application stating why they feel they would be a good candidate for the club by midnight on Wednesday, January 27th. Go to http://www.nisdtx.org/Page/60653 to apply.

  2. Students must attend an audition on Friday, January 29th from 3:00-5:00 p.m. Students are required to prepare an audition of approximately 30 seconds (for example, either the verse or refrain from a song) showing their potential and/or passion for dance.  The audition will also include a section for which they need not prepare. No prior experience is needed to audition for the Dance Company.

  3. We will obtain a teacher recommendation on all students who apply regarding suitability for the club and good behavior in the classroom.

  4. Students will be required to attend ALL rehearsals. Rehearsals will be on Wednesdays from 2:45-5 pm beginning Feb. 3rd through April 12th   Each applicant will be required to submit all conflicts, including other clubs and activities, on their application to help us plan for these rehearsals.  Two or more unexcused absences may result in dismissal from the club – attendance is very important both for the individual student as well as the entire group. Please schedule regular appointments another time and save absences for illnesses or emergencies. All conflicts must be communicated to Mrs. Nassiff, including illness, or they will be considered unexcused.

  5. Pay a $15 fee to help cover the cost of t-shirts and supplies. Parents will be asked to help supply their child’s costumes – we do our best to keep requirements simple and borrow, when possible.

  6. Students must be on their best behavior at all rehearsals and performances. Two written notices of behavior issues may result in the child’s dismissal from the club.
