NWDT Company Auditions for the 2017/2018 Season

We’re looking forward to beginning our 29th year this fall! We are inviting pre-professional young dancers to attend company auditions on June 4th, 2017, at June Taylor’s School of Dance located at 19318 SW Mohave Court, Tualatin, OR 97062. Audition times are as follows:

Returning members: 1:00-2:30pm
New members: 3:00-4:30pm

There is a $10 audition fee, which can be made payable at the door by cash or check only. Dancers are asked to arrive early to complete registration and warm up, as the audition will begin with center work. Pointe shoes (for girls) and jazz shoes are required for the audition. Dancers must be at least 12 years of age and have had at least six months of pointe work training. For more information, please contact us at 503-925-3898 or office@nwdt.org

NWDT dancers have the opportunity to improve technique, learn classical and contemporary works, explore different styles of dance, increase choreography learning skills, gain pre-professional performing experience, and work with renown choreographers. Here are some words from NWDT alumni about their experience as NWDT company members:

“NWDT has helped me build the strength and sense of commitment I need to dance in college and pursue a dance career. NWDT has been a pivotal part of my dance training, and I don’t think I’d be where I am today without it.”

“My work with NWDT not only pushed me to be a better dancer, but also helped me in academic studies. I learned how to manage my time efficiently and to stay calm even under stress.”

“The extra four or five hours a week I spend in the studio for company rehearsals has helped me improve my technique because I get to dance more, so I get stronger by coming to rehearsal.”
