IMPORTANT INFO

The Hargest Academy of Performing Arts is a professional studio. We will begin with dance first at the inception of our business, but will be incorporating all aspects of the performing arts. This will include all realms of music from writing and recording to actual stage performance as a whole. We want to coach and direct future stars and help them get started on the right path to reach their goal as an entertainer.

 

All classes are open to the public. You do not have to be a company member to take any of our classes.  Several levels and dance styles are available. The classes range from combination classes for the very young dancer just starting out to advanced levels for dancers looking for a career in the industry.

 

A pre-company for young dancers 4-6 years of age, and a company for older dancers are available for those that want to obtain more performance opportunities.

 

Our intent as a studio is to provide a learning place to help create well rounded and technically strong performers. We also can provide help to dancers from other studio competition teams achieve their goals in the competition circuit.

PRE-COMPANY AUDITIONS

WILL BE HELD JULY 22, 2017

10AM

 

Pre-Company auditions will be held Saturday July 22, 2017 at 10AM. This company is for 4-6 year olds. For the audition, the dancers should wear dance attire that makes them stand out and that is comfortable. Bring hip hop clothing and hip hop shoes (or tennis shoes).

 

We will be looking for the potential for flexibility, and for the little dancers that are not afraid of a little discomfort when they are asked to stretch. We will be asking them to do simple dance moves to see if they are coordinated, and can follow instruction. They will be given a short hip hop combo, and will have to perform it in groups with a demonstrator. We will be looking for dancers that can focus, are attentive, and show a real desire to dance. They do not have to be perfect, just look like they are enjoying it!

 

The first pre-company meeting will be Saturday August 5, 2017.

COMPANY AUDITIONS

WILL BE HELD JULY 22, 2017

12PM

 

Company auditions will be held Saturday July 22, 2017 at 12PM. This company is for the older, more mature dancers. For the audition, dancers should wear dance clothing that compliments their body and allows the judges to see what they doing. Bring hip hop clothes and shoes to put on for the last part of the audition. Dancers will be doing some ballet, progressions, a jazz/contemporary combo, and a hip hop combo. They will be asked to show flexibility (splits, squared and open, and middle).

 

Some of the things that will be judged are: flexibility, turns, jumps, special skills, tumbling skills, performance quality, ability to pick up choreography, focus/attention while learning, focus while performing, technique, body alignment, and confidence. This does not mean that you necessarily have to be great at all of these things, we just want to see the potential and the desire.

 

We will be looking for several different things. Please do not be nervous or scared of the audition. We are looking for dancers that have potential, a desire to perform, are hard working, that are not afraid to sweat, and will go the extra mile without being asked to.

 

We do not have a set number that we are excepting into the company.

 

The first company meeting will be Saturday August 5, 2017.
