PRE - AUDITION WORKSHOPS
The best way to prepare for auditions is to attend the Pre- Audition Workshops.
A Pre - Audition workshop is approximately a 2-hour workshop that focuses on what it takes to be a Cavalier Girls dance team member. The workshop includes a group warm-up, across the floor technique/skills, a choreographed combination routine that features a mock audition, hair and make-up how to’s and a question/answer session at the end of the workshop with the Coordinator/Choreographer, Vandana Patel. This is perfect for anyone who wants to touch up on technique/skills and/or wants to try-out for the Cavalier Girls dance team but, does not know what to expect. Workshops are strongly recommended and you must 16 years of age or older to a Pre-Audition workshop.
