Frequently Asked Questions
What happens when I arrive at the Open Call Audition?
Upon arrival, contestants will check in at the registration desk, sign a waiver, and receive a contestant number. Contestants will then learn a short dance routine. Contestants that learned the routine at the workshop or dance prep class can use this time to rehearse. There will be time for all contestants to rehearse prior to being judged.
What will I be asked to do during the Audition?
There are two parts to the Open Call Audition: Modeling and Dance. Contestants will walk in a set pattern to their places and then walk individually in front of the judges. This will be considered the modeling portion of the competition and will give the panel of judges the opportunity to score on physical fitness, confidence, and beauty. The contestants will then perform the dance routine twice in small groups. The judges will be scoring on dance ability including execution/technique, retention of choreography, and showmanship. There will be two elimination rounds during the Open Call Audition.
What are the judging criteria?
During the Open Call Audition, contestants will be judged on dance ability including retention of choreography and execution/technique, physical fitness, beauty, confidence, and showmanship.
What should I wear?
Contestants should wear a sports bra, lycra shorts and sneakers or dance sneakers for the audition. We suggest wearing nude hosiery with your outfit and wearing a warm-up over the outfit while registering and waiting to perform. Contestants should wear their hair down and have their make-up done. Any body jewelry should be removed and tattoos should be covered.
When does the Open Call Audition conclude?
Contestants should come prepared to stay the day. The audition is expected to conclude around 4 pm. Contestants remaining after the second elimination round will be invited back the following week to continue with the audition process. Can I bring a family or friends? The Open Call Auditions are closed to the public. Only contestants will be granted access into the SCA Club.
What should I bring with me?
You should bring bottled water and snacks with you. There will also be water stations available and a concession stand open for your convenience.
