Dancestreams auditions in Qualicum Beach

All dancers aged 12-18 invited to attend audition class on Sunday, June 14 at the Qualicum Beach School of Dance

Dancestreams, Vancouver Island’s longest established youth dance company, will be holding auditions for the coming 2015-16 season on Sunday, June 14 at the Qualicum Beach School of Dance. Dancers aged 12-18 are invited to attend

Formed in 1985 to provide enriched training opportunities for professionally minded teen dancers, Dancestreams brings together talented teens from communities throughout Vancouver Island.  Every Sunday, September to May, these dedicated and hard-working young people come together in a central location for six hours of intensive classes and rehearsals, on top of their regular training in their home studios.

Additionally, the dancers are exposed to a variety of professional workshops and master classes.

Choreography for the company is created by both emerging and established professionals from all over North America. Performance of these new works is key to the success of the company. Each spring, the dancers tour throughout the Vancouver Island region and occasionally further afield. In the past, Dancestreams has been fortunate to tour in the Maritimes, China, Germany and Belgium. This past season, students spent eight days in Los Angeles working with a choreographer as well as taking classes at a number of professional venues.

Dancestreams offers serious dance students the opportunity to work with dancers with similar focus and determination in a situation where they can learn as much from each other as from the guest teachers and artistic staff.

Many of the company’s alumni have gone on to successful careers in professional dance, continuing their studies with a multitude of performing companies and at world-class institutions such as Julliard.

If you’d like to get involved, this weekend’s audition will take the form of  a class.

The class is open to all dancers, however, so a performer can participate even if they are not yet ready to audition.

The class will run from 11:30 a.m. – 2:00 p.m. and costs $15. Pre-registration is strongly recommended, so please e-mail dancestreams@shaw.ca or call 250-723-9525.
