AUDITION WORKSHOP – 2019 QUANTUM LEAP – FILLING THE SPACE – YOU CAN DO THIS!

FREE AUDITION WORKSHOP – 24 FEBRUARY 1PM-5PM

FILLING THE SPACE is QL2 Dance’s major project for 2019 for our Quantum Leap ensemble (ages 14+) — which could mean you!

If selected during the free workshop, you will create and perform new work with Artistic Director Ruth Osborne and choreographers James Batchelor and Eliza Sanders.

Physical, thoughtful, and professionally presented: FILLING THE SPACE is an opportunity for you to collaborate and create with other young dancers.

WORKSHOP AUDITION:  Sunday 24 February 1pm-5pm at the QL2 Studio, Gorman Arts Centre. Pre-registration is essential. Please arrive 15 minutes early.

WHO CAN DO THE AUDITION WORKSHOP?

Ages 14-23, with a creative mind and dance, theatre or gymnastics experience.

REHEARSALS: Sundays from 17 March to July (except Easter), ten days over two weeks in April and two week full time in July – in school holidays for most students.

PRODUCTION: Canberra Playhouse, 5-10 August 2019. (you will need to take time off school that week).

Classes are essential!

Everyone in our projects must regularly attend dance classes — either at QL2 Dance, or if you are already doing solid technique classes elsewhere, you can ask (in writing) for an exemption from the Artistic Director. Have a look at our classes program here.

Cost, payment plans, bursaries

This project is heavily subsidised — the total cost to you is $475, including the project t-shirt. You then need to add the cost of classes. We are non-profit, and keep costs low.

We offer confidential bursaries to reduce or remove costs if this prevents you being in a project. To make an appointment to discuss a bursary, please phone Ruth Osborne on 0418 943 857.

Audition format

The audition will be in the form of a dance workshop, including a warmup, learning some short sequences, and creative group work. You don’t need to prepare anything. We are keen to see young people with physical or performance skills from other forms — eg gymnastics, or theatre.

The aim is for you to have a good time, meet other dancers, and perhaps get into Quantum Leap — in that order!

“Remember that we are looking for a variety of skills, so don’t be put off by others seeming to be more experienced in one form or another — just enjoy yourself and do your best in each section. I look forward to seeing you there!”

RUTH OSBORNE

The panel will make decisions about who will join Quantum Leap shortly after the workshop.  We will email results of the audition —no results will be given on the day or by phone.

Photo. We will need a clear head or head-and-shoulders photo so we can identify you in the audition. This is not a glamour competition, and how you look in the photo is not part of the selection process.   We will email you so you can send the photo.  But we must have it before the audition!

All done?  Make sure you've selected your photo to upload, if you've got one. When you hit 'submit', wait until you get the success message.  That might take a while, because it has to upload the photo now. If it hasn't worked, just delete it and email it separately.  And if you don't get a success message, or don't get an email from us, please contact us!
