During the EDP workshops there will be an audition class taught by one of the faculty members. Dancers choosing to participate will receive a number in their studio package, and will perform in front of the judges at the conclusion of the combo class in small groups. The top 3 dancers chosen by the judges from each age category (Mini-Senior) will head to the Elite Showdown to determine the winner. The Elite Showdown performance will be a two-part improv including one fast and one slow song (only one song for Minis-Juniors). The judges will then decide the winner which will be announced during the final award ceremony. You do not need to be registered in the competition to compete for the title of Elite Dancer.
*Dancers MUST be registered for both days of workshops in order to be eligible for the Elite Dancer audition. Dancers who are registered for one-day on the day of the audition, may take the audition combo class but will not be allowed to participate in the audition.
**Although professionals and dancers 19+ may dance in the Senior room, they may not compete for the title of Elite Dancer.
***Elite Dancer winners may NOT audition again in that particular competitive year. Elite dancers must wait until one full competitive year has passed OR they have moved into a new age division (i.e. if they won Teen Elite Dancer in 2016, they must wait to audition until 2018, UNLESS they have moved up to the Senior division in 2017). Runner-ups may audition again in the same competitive year.
