DANCE DEPARTMENT AUDITIONS
The Dance Department invites students to be part of the Spring 2021 Dance Collective virtual production! Dancers with all technique backgrounds and levels are welcome to join the production cast; students enrolled and cast in pieces will be responsible for attending weekly zoom rehearsals (at times specified by individual choreographers) and must have a smartphone or other recording device, internet access, and the ability to upload video files.
Students will have the opportunity to work with student and/or faculty choreographers, and may be cast in multiple pieces. Rehearsals will take place weekly from late January through mid April, with the virtual performance premiering online the third weekend in April. Interested students should enroll in either DANC 10, 11, 12, 14, 15 or 16.
Students are requested to enroll by noon on Friday January 29th. After this point, students MUST email Deidre Cavazzi, email@example.com for placement, no later than Thurs Feb 4th.
Enrolled students will be contacted prior to the start of the semester to determine scheduling availability and selection for pieces. All casting decisions are at the discretion of the choreographers.
Students enrolled in production and repertory courses are also eligible to take part in a new dance work for the FAMT Diversity Festival (mid-semester), and be part of a new, outdoor, site-specific performance project (scheduled for May, depending on COVID restrictions and campus access).

Due to recommendations from the Federal Government and the Centers for Disease Control, candidates for the Applied Music Program should submit an unlisted YouTube link of their audition to firstname.lastname@example.org. It will then be forwarded to all the other faculty. This application must also be attached to the email.
In the video, please introduce yourself, tell us what piece you will be performing, and then perform the piece. The Music Department will be accepting applications for the Applied Music program until Thursday January 21st.
Please submit your application ASAP! There is a limited number of available spaces. Spots will be filled on first come, first served basis.
When filling out the application form, please note:
1) Students must have Thursdays from 1:30 PM to 3:20 PM free to attend this class, even though we will probably not meet every week.
2) Friday times: please circle only if there are any class conflicts (work conflicts don't matter).
3) Piano classes are for non piano majors.
If accepted, students will be assigned a private teacher and receive weekly lessons. Private lessons will continue to take place via an online platform. Performance opportunities will become more exciting, including a professionally-edited and recorded video-taped performance either on the McKinney stage or in the TV Studio. We are working on other ways to create valuable opportunities while keeping safe.
