Dorothy Keck Dance Company Information

The Dorothy Keck Dance Company made its debut during the 2016-2017 Season. The team consists of dancers ages 5-11 years old who compete at various dance competitions in the San Antonio area. All DKDC members are selected through audition and must show a positive, upbeat attitude, great focus in class, consistent effort, flexibility, grace, and technical potential.  Dancers who also wish to compete in Hip Hop should also audition for the Mini Swag Team or Turn Up Krew (based on age).

How to Audition:

Dancers who want to be a part of the Dorothy Keck Dance Company should attend Open Auditions Saturday, May 4 2019 from 12:30-2:15pm.  The first 15 minutes of this audition will be a mandatory parent meeting.

Students will be judged on Ballet, Tap, and Jazz skills as well as their flexibility, attitude, focus, and effort.  Females should wear a leotard and tights for the ballet portion of the audition (any color or style), and may layer fitted dance shorts if desired for the Tap and Jazz portions.  Hair is expected to be pulled neatly away from the face.

 

Cost for audition is $25.  All students must pre-register and pay for their audition spot. Fees are non-refundable and non-transferrable.
