2017 Prep Class & Workshop Schedule
Audition Prep Classes are designed to introduce dancers to the style of choreography performed by Nuggets Dancers. Classes are open to all dancers over 16 years of age (Dancers under 18 years of age will need to have a parent or guardian present to sign a waiver on their behalf). Prep Classes are essentially dance classes and include:
- Warm-up / Stretch
- Brief Technique / Across the Floor
- Dance Combo
- Q&A session about auditions
A different combo will be taught at each prep class. The pace of each class is like the actual audition setting. Many dancers take ALL prep classes to practice picking up the DND style of choreography in a fast-paced environment. Individual prep classes cost $16 in advance or $20 at the door. Dancers interested in pre-registering for 10 or more classes receive a 10% discount and pay just $14.40/class!

If you want to learn what to expect throughout the audition process, how to prepare for each stage, and gain tons of knowledge on what it takes to be a member of the Denver Nuggets Dancers, then you should attend this workshop!

Cost for the Audition Workshop is $50 (advance registration only, non-refundable). Space is limited to 20 participants. Although current Nuggets Dancers will be on hand to assist with workshop topics, former Nuggets Dancers may not attend the Audition Workshops as participants.
All participants will need to complete a waiver before attending their first class or workshop. Dancers under age 18 will need to have a parent/guardian accompany them to registration to sign a waiver on their behalf – NO EXCEPTIONS. Waivers for dancers 18+ will also be available at the door.
