Auditions and Current Student Interest Meetings for Dance Companies and Clubs

Wednesday, August 21st 7:10-8:10 PM
Meredith College Dance Crew Interest Meeting
MCDC will provide a once-a-week class in the fall and spring for all interested students. MCDC will continue focusing on hip-hop but will touch on other dance styles and techniques such as jazz-funk as well as strength, stamina, and stability classes. The first four rehearsals will be open to all students and members of the organization will have the opportunity to instruct and lead a weekly meeting class. After the first four rehearsals, students will undergo an audition to participate in a collaborative group dance for the fall concert. For the spring, we will continue the tradition of performing at the women’s basketball halftime. Students wanting to perform for halftime performances will undergo an audition as well after the first four weeks of rehearsals. Additional weekend practices for halftime or concert preparations may be required. MCDC will also be a part of the spring concert, DanceWorks.

Meredith Improv Interest Meeting Meredith Improv is a low-commitment and non-auditioned dance group for anyone (any dance experience, any level) who wants to learn or continue learning how to improvise in dance. Movement improvisation is any non-choreographed movement danced on the spot. Some improvisation can have prompts, some can be exploring different movements than you are used to, and some can just be moving however you want to move. We will have meetings hopefully once a month depending on the availability of everyone. Some meetings will be improvising in the studio, some will be outside on campus, and some will be off campus. Improv has performed in past years at CSA day, before dance concerts, and in random places on campus. Improv is open to anyone and I hope to see you all there! The interest meeting will be held Friday, August 23rd, 10:00-10:50 AM  in Studio A.
