Training & Performance Company Auditions

Moving in the Spirit will hold training company and performance company auditions for the 2024-2025 program year on June 2, 2024 and August 24, 2024.

Moving in the Spirit’s intermediate and advanced training companies are for dancers who wish to dedicate multiple days a week to developing and refining their dance technique and artistry.

Moving in the Spirit’s premiere performance company, the Youth Ambassador Team, represents our organization with excellence at local, regional, and national events and performance opportunities.

The Companies

Dancers can audition for the following performance and training companies:

Audition Options

  • Sunday, June 2, 2024 from 1 PM – 4 PM 
  • Saturday, August 24, 2024 from 2 PM-4 PM

All auditions will be held at Moving in the Spirit.


We highly encourage all dancers intending to audition to first enroll in one of our age-appropriate Stepping Stones classes.

This will ensure that you will have a spot in a class on the day and time of your choice if you are not placed in a training or performance company.

If you are placed in a training and/or performance company, our program team will automatically remove your enrollment from the Stepping Stones class. You will be notified via email and given access to enroll in the training and/or performance company.

What to Expect at Auditions

  • Students will have a ballet barre warm-up, modern dance center combination, and jazz across the floor. 
  • They will learn two routines. One will be contemporary dance and the other will be either hip-hop or West African. 
  • Moving in the Spirit is NOT only about dance technique. Students will also get an opportunity to showcase their public speaking skills as part of the audition. All students should be prepared to introduce themselves and explain why they want to join the group(s) they are auditioning for. 
  • There will also be an opportunity for students to improvise and show their own personal style based on their response to a short eight-count movement phrase.

If you plan to audition in August, we highly encourage you to keep moving. Consider signing up for our Summer Camp. Dance is a muscle. If you don’t use it, you lose it!

If you have any other questions please do not hesitate to reach out to or 

What happens if I’m not placed in a company?

Students not placed in a training company or performance company can still take classes and perform with Moving in the Spirit! 

Moving in the Spirit is structured so that there is a class for everyone. Our program team will place you in an appropriate-level Steppings Stones class – and make recommendations for supplementary Movement Labs – so that you can build your technique and prepare for next year’s audition.
