Season V Auditions

Are you ready to EVOLVE through the next season with our NATIONALLY award-winning dance company?

As we wrap up a hugely successful fourth season, we are gearing up for Season V with auditions right around the corner! The Evolve Dance Company is unique because it offers the opportunity for performance and growth to dancers ages 5-18 & ALL LEVELS are welcome! 

Evolve Dance Company is truly a family that supports, loves, and encourages one another. We have built a community in the past season of SIXTY-FOUR dancers and can’t wait to continue to grow - and that starts with YOU! 


Our dancers train year-round in Ballet, Jazz, Tap, Hip Hop, Contemporary, Musical Theatre, and Acro. We strive to offer dancers training on a more in-depth level and help them appreciate dance as an art form & possible profession. We encourage our dancers to learn teamwork, dedication, graciousness, and perseverance. We provide an atmosphere to explore their creative side & understand the art of dance. We’ve cultivated an environment with the most qualified faculty, cutting edge choreography, clear communication and transparency, and a community that is unmatched in our region. We challenge and push each dancer to their fullest potential - and we have FUN!


We believe in offering the best dance education to ALL of our studio dancers, but also investing in our company dancers by offering diverse training & opportunities that you can’t find anywhere else in the River Region. Evolve Dance Company is made up of three competitive companies: The Premiere Company, The Core Company, and The Prodigy Company. These companies are separated by age and the engagement level your family would like to be committed to. 


Below are a LOT of details as we like to communicate everything up front. You will find details regarding our three companies, auditions and also fundraising. Please read everything thoroughly and we welcome any questions you may have. There's a form below for anyone who would like to set up a one-on-one meeting with the directors.

We will be hosting our Season V auditions this May and June. Our first audition is May 11th for Prodigy Company ONLY. This is for ages 8 & up. We will host a second audition for Prodigy in June with our Core Company if we are still accepting dancers for Prodigy. Our second audition is June 17th-18th for Premiere and Core. Our auditions are broken up into two age groups.

    • Premiere (Ages 5-8)

    • Core & Prodigy (Ages 8 & Up)

*If you’re unsure of which audition your 8 year old should attend, please reach out to us*​​

  • Auditions for Specials will be scheduled.

  • Auditions are open to the public for any dancers, not just current students at Evolve.

  • There is a $25 audition fee and a $5 fee to audition for a solo or duo/trio. 

  • You may pay your audition fee by cash or check.

  • All dancers auditioning need to bring in a headshot and a resume with dance experience listed. You’re more than welcome to stop by the office for an example or email us. 

  • Click HERE to fill out your company audition form. This form must be turned in by MAY 1ST FOR PRODIGY AUDITIONS AND JUNE 14TH FOR PREMIERE/CORE to audition. This will give us a proper headcount as to how many to expect in each age group. 

  • On this form you will have several selections to make including which companies you would like to be considered for, how many group dances you are wanting to be considered for, and if you are auditioning for a special.

  • Audition fees must be paid by the first day of your dancer's audition at 8:00am along with your first payment towards company tuition for July. If accepted into Prodigy in May, you will have to pay June tuition.

  • If you are registered for Summer classes before this date then you will not need to turn in any payment. 

    • Tuition for July is $255 for company members, and families with two siblings is $375. 

    • You can turn in payment via check or cash & it will be returned to you if you do not become a member of EDC. 


** Our auditions are not about “cutting” dancers, but about assessing their skill level and progress and then placing them into companies for the season. If we personally feel that a dancer is not ready to be a member of EDC, we will discuss it with the parent and dancer after auditions conclude. All discussions will come with a plan to get your dancer on the right track towards becoming an EDC member. **


  • During check-in for auditions you will turn in your headshot/resume and your dancer will be assigned a number for the duration of their auditions.

  • Dancers need to check-in all days applicable to receive their numbers for the auditions each day.

  • All Premiere Co Dancers will attend a ballet, jazz, contemporary, and a hip hop audition. 

    • Due to their young ages, we stage this more as just them attending a class with Mrs. Brittany, who is our Premiere Company Director. 

    • This age group is welcome to wear any dance outfit of their choice to their auditions - we love to see their personality!

    • They will need ballet shoes for the ballet portion of the audition; jazz shoes for their jazz audition; and tennis shoes for their hip hop audition. They can be barefoot for Contemporary. 

    • We ask that hair is pulled back out of their face. 

    • No experience is needed for auditions.

  • All Core & Prodigy Dancers will attend a ballet audition, jazz audition, contemporary audition, and hip hop audition.

    • You do NOT need experience in all of these styles to audition, but you must complete all four auditions to be considered. 


  • Core & Prodigy are required to wear their hair in a low bun. No jewelry allowed other than small earrings that are not distracting.

  • Ballet: All female dancers should have a plain black leotard (no color accents), pink or skin tone ballet tights, and pink or skin tone ballet shoes. No skirts. All male dancers should wear black shorts and a white t-shirt or tank top with black/skin tone ballet shoes. No bare feet.

  • Jazz: Dancers are allowed to wear an outfit of choice, but will only have a 15 minute break between ballet and jazz to change if they’d like. You will not be faulted for staying in your ballet attire if chosen to do so. Dancers should have tan or black jazz shoes. No bare feet.

  • Contemporary: Dancers are allowed to wear an outfit of choice and will be dancing barefoot. No socks.

  • Solo & Duo/Trio auditions: Dancers can pick an outfit of choice and shoes should depend on their style chosen.


  • Anyone is allowed to audition for a solo or duo/trio for EDC. It is up to our discretion to decide who will receive a “special” as we refer to them.

    • Special auditions are by appointment only using this Sign Up Genius link HERE. Prodigy specials will be May 10th and 11th.

    • Specials are a huge financial and time commitment alone, on top of the standard commitments for EDC. 

    • No faculty at Evolve or another dance studio may help with this solo, and that includes cleaning it. 

    • You may choose to audition in the style you are wanting for your special, or another style to show your range. 

      • We are looking for dancers who can hold their own on stage, who have a work ethic that goes above and beyond, and who are passionate about their training. 

  • Click HERE to access our Specials Audition Form. This must be submitted in order to audition for a special before your audition. Specials Auditions will close June 18th for Premiere and Core. 

    •  You will select the specials you’re interested in, if you’re interested in doing a special with anyone/who, and rank the styles you are interested in.

  • To audition for a solo, a dancer must SELF-CHOREOGRAPH a 1:00-1:30 minute solo. 

  • To audition for a duo/trio a dancer has two options - you may choreograph a 1:00-1:30 minute dance with another dancer(s) that you’re wanting to be partnered with, or you may audition as a soloist and state you’re open to a duo/trio rather than a solo, or both. 

    • We are looking for dancers who work well together, have the same work ethic and commitment level, and whose training balances. 


  • Dancers will find out by 9AM on June 19th if they have been chosen as a member of EDC.

  • Those that are chosen will be emailed an offer letter on June 19th. This letter will contain the dances you are being offered for the season.

  • Once your offer letter is emailed back or turned into our office with the dances you have chosen to accept, you will receive your company contract.

  • All contracts must be signed & turned in no later than 7 PM on June 28th - and then the real fun begins! Your contract must include your $100 company deposit in either cash or check.
