"IS IT IN YOU?"

Come discover your passion for dance at San Juan Hills

 

The San Juan Hills Dance Department offers an exciting and enriching program to every individual. It provides our students all aspects of dance training and performance opportunities. It provides training in ballet, lyrical, contemporary, hip hop, and various styles of jazz including but not limited to character and stylized jazz. Each dancer will have the opportunity to experience proper stretching exercises, alignment, and strength and body conditioning. It also fosters the development of student choreography and encourages individual discipline, creative expression, and leadership. Students will experience working with various professional dance artists and will perform in the winter collaboration concert and the spring dance concert. They will also work collaboratively and showcase their own choreography in a concert early spring. It is our goal that individuals who graduate from the program will be confident in their movements and their training and will feel inspired to continue dance in college or at a professional level either in choreography and/or performance.

Bowser and Donkeykong entered the scene and kidnapped Princess Peach. Now Mario will have to go through the fire world, water world, mario kart and finally get to Bowser's castle to rescue the princess. It was a bang of a performance and thoroughly enjoyed by the staff and students.

ATTENTION INCOMING FRESHMEN INTERESTED IN THE BEGINNING DANCE PROGRAM!

As our program continues to flourish, it has become impacted. You may have noticed in your schedule options that dance has become unavailable to incoming freshmen as an option. However, if you are someone who is really interested in our program and want to learn how to dance but have no previous dance training, please still attend the production auditions, so that the judges and I may take a look at your potential, work ethic and movement quality, as exceptions can be made if justifiable. You may be put on the recommended list and might be filled into the available spots left after upperclassmen registration. Please see below for audition information. Thank you and Good Luck!!!

Advanced Dance Production, Intermediate Dance Production and Beginning/Intermediate Audition 2019-2020

  • Time: Advanced Registration starts at 9:00. Audition will begin at 9:15.
  • Intermediate and Beginning/Intermediate Registration starts at 11:15. Audition will begin at 11:30.

 

Can I tryout for both levels? Yes you can. If you come try advanced and it's too challenging or you feel that you didn't do your best, you may stay and audition for intermediate as well and vice versa.

 

Please fill out an application and attach a current photo to the form. You can pick up an application from the dance board in the dance hall or you can print it out from our dance page calendar (go to June 1, it's an attachment) or you can email me and I will send you the form.

 

The day of auditions:

  1. Arrive early. You need to warm up and stretch on your own before we start.
  2. Bring your completed application and photo.
  3. Wear ALL black dance attire. Any color shoes that you can turn in.
  4. Pull hair back. Remember, judges can tell how disciplined you are as a dancer by how you present yourself.Some NO-NO tips:  Loose bra straps showing, runned down tights, very low cut tops, tube tops, boxers hanging out, big skate shoes, etc. You get the idea
  5. Learn an across the floor combo which will include but not limited to, a variety of turns (pirouettes, chaine, pique, al a seconde, fouette, floats, attitude, around the world), a variety of flexibility components (such as kicks, extensions, splits, leg holds, leg hold turns, illusions, pitch), a variety of jumps (such as grand jetes, jumps in second, single stag, switch leaps, switch seconds, toe touch, firebird). Optional: Perform specialties such as pointe, tap, break, pop, lock, gymnastics/acro (more than cartwheels and round offs), any special tricks you can do. This is your time to show off who you are as a dancer. You are welcome to bring a couple of 8's of a combo to showcase your style. No music necessary. Any genre o.k. ONLY 2 counts of 8 max please!!!
  6. Results will be posted on our dance website the next day or two after auditions. This audition is for level placement. Please do your best! =)

If you are unable to attend your audition date due to a school activity or an out of state transfer, please email me ASAP so that arrangements can be made. Your make up auditions need to be made before the actual audition day.

Good Luck To All The Dancers!

Audition Make Up Day

Make Up Day is Thursday, May 31, 2018 at 3:45-5:00 pm for 8th graders. You will need to bring proof of the reason of your absence for the actual audition day. Examples of allowable excuses are 8th grade dance, 8th grade school trip, 8th grade graduation, middle school musical/play etc. Work schedule, appointments, detention, etc. are not considered allowable excuses. You will be recorded and the recording will be shown to the judges on May 26th when they arrive, where you will then be possibly placed somewhere in the program.
