Dance audition instructions: 
--Below are 5 prompts to be included in submission tapes. You are welcome to perform whatever comes to you within these prompts. Please indicate if you have any injuries or restrictions and, if so, adapt these prompts as needed. 
--While recording, please have the person filming you read the prompts aloud and then perform each one.
1. Perform first 8 counts of a line dance
2. Collapse to the floor in slow motion
3. Using an imagined sign language (perhaps for an alien species), use your entire body to say: “Hello! My name is __________________, can you show me where I can get something to eat?”
4. Pantomime starting a gas lawn mower (pulling the cord, getting behind the handle, pushing the mower, etc.), mowing 3 or 4 feet of lawn and then retrograde, or reverse, what you just did. (Try to be precise!)
5. To the music that’s provided (or the selection you brought), please dance like you are in the center of a dance circle at a wedding party and you are the life of the party. You are welcome to show any special skills/abilities.

Please use the following song: 
Parliament Funkadelic’s ‘Flashlight
IMPORTANT NOTES FOR SELF-TAPE AUDITIONS 
--Lighting, audio and backdrop are crucial. Many auditions aren’t sent to the director due to production quality. 
--At the END of the audition: Slate your name, and agent if you have one. Also state if you are a local hire. 
For families submitting together: 
--Please include one take with the whole family together completing the prompts; AND a take of each individual family member completing the prompts on their own. 
--Each family member should state their name at the end of their individual take so that we know who is who!

Notes for minors: 
--Minors may be submitted as either dancers or movers. 
--Minors may be submitted individually or as part of a family- but production has a strong preference for whole families. 
--Parent or guardian must be present with minor on set for both rehearsals and filming days. 
--Must be prepared to take a COVID test- paid for by production.
