2020 / COVID update:
As per the decision of the Performing Arts Council, which applies to all dance companies on campus, and the remote nature of the fall semester, eXpressions will not be holding auditions for the company for this fall. However, we will still hold virtual events throughout the school year and we are excited to welcome the class of 2024! Check out our Facebook and Instagram to stay up-to-date.
eXpressions Dance Company has auditions twice a year, at the beginning of each semester. Check our Facebook for details on specific dates and locations.
Who Can Audition?
Anyone who loves to dance or loves to have fun or...who loves to have fun dancing! eXp welcomes dancers of all backgrounds- whether it be the bunhead who's been dancing since three years old or the Princetonian who never expected they'd audition for a dance group. Along these lines, we welcome dancers of all class years. Auditions are highly energetic and fun so the more the merrier!
What are auditions like?
Our auditions start out with warm-up and across the floor that eXp traditionally does as a company before shows and at company rehearsal each week. Then, you learn a short combination and perform it in groups! Don't worry, you'll have plenty of time to learn the choreography and ask questions before you perform.
eXpressions will then tell dancers whether they have received a callback within 24 hours via email. Callbacks are usually two or three days after auditions.
Callbacks are similar to auditions, but there are two main differences: the style of the choreography usually differs from that of the first audition and there are fewer dancers- so you have more space to shine!
After callbacks, eXpressions will post a list of accepted dancers in Frist Campus Center and welcome new members into the company!
