Performing Member Auditions


RETURN SUNDAY, MARCH 3, 2024, By Level

(Or on an Individual Basis Year-Round)

Be prepared for a ballet class. Upper levels should also be prepared for pointe/contemporary/tap/jazz.  Audition times are listed according to current level.  If this is your first time auditioning with Gary Taylor Dance, please contact GTD directly for appropriate audition time. 910-420-1025,

A panel of dance experts, including the Director(s) of Gary Taylor Dance, will adjudicate the auditions.  It is important to understand the adjudication process is subjective. The auditions will begin as close to the designated time as possible.  The adjudication process begins as soon as the dancer walks onto the dance floor.  No parents, guardians, or caretakers will be allowed in the audition studio.

Adjudicators will observe the dancer as each performs a variety of movements. Results of the audition, which is the placement level beginning this summer, will be distributed in a timely manner.

Performing Member Annual Fee and Registration due at time of audition.
