Join our Competition Team
Auditions taking place on Zoom
Competition dancers take part in weekly classes with their teammates in large or small groups. We work on a combination of conditioning, acro, jazz, lyrical, and for older dancers, contemporary. All competition team dancers must take at least three regular classes a week including ballet & modern/jazz. We also often rehearse classical ballet groups which are invite-only dependent solely on ballet technique demonstrated in class. Dancers who have been a part of our troupe team for over a year are then offered private tuition towards solos, duets or trio routines. Auditions take place on Sat 18 July.
We also run two levels of street crews on Fridays and auditions are now taking place on Mon 27 July.
Brooks Dance Academy Troupe
Competition Team Casting & Open Auditions 🏆
Would you like to be part of our successful and award-winning dance team? Brooks Dance Academy are running open auditions and casting for our troupes, starting in September 2020.
Brooks compete nationally and have won numerous prizes and awards at regional and national dance events. We are looking for dancers with potential, passion, enthusiasm, a positive-attitude and a high level of commitment to join our team.
All current troupe dancers should also take part in these auditions, as we will use this as a chance to think about how to put our groups together for next term. The session will be run like a normal dance class with no pressure, although we will ask everyone to perform a short routine in groups at the end.
