    UVU Tour Team Auditions May 1

    See the information below about UVU Tour Team auditions on May 1, 2021:

    “Hello, Ballroom Directors and Coaches,

    I would love to share the attached poster and information about our upcoming UVU Ballroom Dance Company Tour Team Auditions.

    Date: Saturday, May 1st
    Time: 8:00am-12:00pm
    Location: UVU Dance Studios RL 154 and 153h

    Could you please forward this to any High School Senior’s you have that might be interested in continuing ballroom dance at Utah Valley University!

    We are planning on competing new medleys at the British Open Championships in May 2022 and are looking for high quality dancers with both individual competition and medley experience to fill open spots on our Tour Team.

    Dancers should be prepared to dance a solo Cha Cha and Waltz routine, and will be called back for choreography after everyone has finished auditioning Cha Cha and Waltz. I know some of your dancers might be apprehensive about dancing solo for an audition, but please tell them not to stress, we know this isn’t how they normally dance and that will be taken into consideration in the audition. The University is requiring masks and social distancing at this time, however next semester we are looking forward to being able to partner together and prepare for Blackpool!

    Please feel free to contact me directly if you have any more questions. We’re very excited for this new year and can’t wait to invite more dancers into our company!
