Auditions for our award-winning competitive Performing Arts Ensemble(PAE) are held annually at RDA in the summer with our faculty and with a special guest artist and guest adjudicators.
This is a rewarding and challenging weekend event, where dancers dig deep and show their talents through a professional style audition!
Ballet Company, Youth Company Jazz, Lyrical, and/or Tap, Company Jazz, Contemporary, and/or Tap, Hip Hop, Acrobatics, and Broadway Jazz.
These enthusiastic performers compete and perform all over the country, have been awarded National and Regional Titles and have traveled extensively. These dancers take classes from some of the best teachers in Colorado Springs and from all over the country. They also have many opportunities to get advanced dance instruction here at RDA and in Colorado. Our amazing performers have an extraordinary reputation for their exceptional technique and artistry as they strive towards mastery of a variety of dance genres.
“There comes a moment in a young artist’s life when he knows he has to bring something to the stage from within himself. He has to put in something in order to be able to take something out.”
