Day one of casting was for the Isla Rose Dance Crew JRS. This group consists of teens that love to dance many different styles. You can smell the excitement and nervs in the air! Everyone is hoping to do well and make the team. We also had a few talented Models and singers.
Each auditioner was given a number and a 360 photos were taken. They were also given a questionary of their dance abilities, interests and why they want to be apart of the Isla Rose Dance Crew (IRDC)
We then asked the auditions to line up and get ready to dance!
The routine started off with a fun filled “Broadway” and “HipHop” style of dance. We performed to the song “Dowtown” by Macklemore and Ryan Lewis. This encouraged the auditioners to perform and not hide behind the “cool” factor hiphop sometimes has. We combined popping, piruettes and leaps so we could see how diverse the dancers are and where the can improve.
After learning the routine the auditionars were asked to leave the dance room and wait outside for the number to be called. The groups were called in threes. The dancers were give about 15 seconds to show us their best freestyle moves before and ater the routine.
We could see some dancers really shined, all were a bit nervious and everyone had fun.
Ultimately, all the dancers did their best and we concluded the audition with a big freestyle circle. Two of our dancers were even discovered by famous photographer and artist Julia Roder and on the journey to working with her soon.
I am very pleased with the turn out of our team and can’t wait for the year to get started!
Day two of our casting for the Company consisted of our Little dancers ages 6-12 for the Isla Rose Tots.
The smiling faces entered with curiosity and excitement.
The tots learned a fun and high energy hiphop routine to Janet Jackson and Missy Elliot’s song “Burn it up.” The dancers really performed and did their best. This was the first audition for many of the dancers.
We ended the day with a big freestyle circle and a positive round of applause as the dancers entered and left the circle.
All and all we are so proud and amazed by the talent we saw. We are so excited for the IRDC and IRTOTS to get to know each other and become a team.
