**To our interested dancers ages 6 and up, As we take “baby steps” back into life during our current reality, DC will be taking precautions throughout the group audition process, and beyond to keep risk low and keep our dancers and their families as safe and healthy as possible! This will mean auditions will be spread over 2 days so that we can “spread out” and have smaller groups in the space. Dancers will audition in shorter time frames, and in “blocks”. Dancers will be asked to sanitize hands on the way in and out, as well as keep physical contact to a minimum (which we know will be hard, because we haven’t seen one another in so long, but we still need to keep our distance!❤) Parents will not be permitted in the lobby, drop off/pick up only. Read on for more info!**

Assistants will be required to sanitize/wash hands regularly.
Age groups will breakdown as follows:
Dancers can audition in their designated blocks only and should leave when finished with their block. In an effort to keep group sizes limited, dancers will not be able to attend “extra” audition classes this year. This will NOT impact placement.
