Frequently asked questions:

  • What should I wear? Please wear clothing that you are comfortable moving in that also allows the directors to see your lines. For example, a leotard and tights, a tank top and leggings, or unitard all are great options.

  • Is there a fee to audition? We want to make auditions accessible to everyone. So we are accepting optional donations for our January audition. Feel free to make a donation on our website to help keep our nonprofit going, or simply come enjoy audition class for free!

  • Should I bring my dance resume? If you have one, yes please do. We are always curious to hear about your training and performance history. But casting is based on your ability to hit the step (rather than who you know, your body type/look, etc).

  • Should I bring a headshot or dance shot? Yes, if you have a picture of yourself you can attach it to the sign in form we give you. It helps us remember who's who!

  • Is a face mask required at the audition? It depends where we are auditioning. If the audition is at Contemporary Ballet Dallas, then yes, a face mask is required due to the studio's current covid policy.

  • If I am offered a position, how quickly will I hear back from you? We typically will contact you within 2-5 business days if you are offered a position.

  • I auditioned once before but was not offered a position in the company. Is it worth auditioning again? YES! We have at least two current company members that had to audition multiple times. Keep growing your art and auditioning when you have the opportunity if 6 o'Clock Dance Theatre is a company you think would be a good fit for you. We're happy to provide feedback on your audition if you'd like it.

  • Can I attend the audition virtually? Yes. If you are interested in attending virtually please email us in advance (by Jan.22) to let us know and we'll send you the Zoom link.

  • I'm unavailable at the audition date/time. Can I send my reel instead? You are welcome to email us your reel and let us know you want to be considered for the audition (but are unable to attend). However we'll still need to see you complete a dance combo via video. If interested in this option, let us know by Jan.23 and we will email you the video of the combo that day for you to send back to us within 24 hours.
