The new year is a great time for Dance Concepts dancers to put themselves out there in the ballet world – by going to auditions! Summer intensive audition season runs January-March, and it gives everyone an opportunity to take great classes from master teachers, as well as the fantastic learning experience dancers get from auditioning. Auditions can be very stressful, so as in all things dance, practice makes perfect. Its also a good way for our dancers to see where they fit in the larger world of dance – and I think they will all be very happy with themselves!

Here are some of the auditions that are coming to Salt Lake this year:
