WHAT TO EXPECT:
|When you arrive, proceed to the registration area for check-in. There will be one area for pre-registered applicants and one area for walk-up applicants. PLEASE BE PREPARED TO SHOW YOUR DRIVER'S LICENSE! Upon registration, you will be given an audition number. Please warm-up while waiting for the audition to begin, as there will not be a group warm-up.|
There will be 3 phases to the preliminary audition. A choreographer will teach a brief technique combination, a stylized jazz combination, and a hip hop combination. A cut will be made after each phase. You will be required to learn and perform the routines in groups of three in front of a panel of judges. At the end of the preliminary audition, approximately 40 applicants will remain to continue through the finals. Finalists will be selected based on their dance ability, showmanship, physical fitness, and crowd appeal.
|2-piece attire (crop top and briefs) and flesh colored hosiery are mandatory. This helps to standardize and minimize the possibility of an unfair advantage based on individual attire. Jazz, dance shoes or athletic shoes ( non-marking soles) are also mandatory. You should wear performance make-up and your hair down. For the hip hop portion, you may wear cargos or sweat pants.|
WHAT TO BRING:
|Suggestions: Water, snacks, extra nylons, jazz and athletic shoes, warm-up/sweat suit, make-up, hair spray, mirror, towel.|
|Finalists selected on July 19th MUST be available for the following: |
1) Monday July 21th for a personal interview at the Clippers office at Staples Center (downtown) during business hours.
2) Final dance audition the evening of Wednesday July 23rd. Exact time & details will be announced to finalists on July 19th.
** If you are not able to participate in any of these segments, you will not be considered for the Clippers Spirit Dance Team.
