ALL candidates will need to learn ALL of Sequence #1. Please note, IF you want to audition as a dancer (a candidate who has received previous dance training and would like to showcase that training), you will need to learn Sequence #1 and Sequence #2.
For Sequence #1, we want to give you a taste of what it is like auditioning for a musical production at Brigham Young University. This sequence is an example of the level and requirements of a typical dance call within the MDT program. It will take you through an artistic phrase as if you are in an audition for a production of Fiddler on the Roof.
Click on the Sequence #1 video provided below to view step-by-step instructions on how to perform this phrase, as well as the demo of the entire sequence required for the dance video submission.
Film yourself performing Sequence #1 to the “Wedding Dance” music from Fiddler on the Roof. An audio file containing the sequence music can be found here (the sequence starts about 50 seconds into the song).
Please make sure that your video shows your entire body from your head to your toes. Wear something akin to what the demonstrators are wearing.Upload the video as instructed on SlideRoom.
IF you want to audition as a dancer to enable you to showcase your previous dance training, film yourself performing Sequence #1 AND Sequence #2 separately. You will then need to combine the two sequences into one video and upload the video as instructed on SlideRoom.
Click on the Sequence #2 Demo video provided below to view the additional dance sequence you will need to include in your dance video submission to apply as a dancer.
Film yourself performing Sequence #2 to the “Rock The Bells” music by Boys Noize. An audio file containing the sequence music can be found here (the sequence starts about 30 seconds into the song).
For step-by-step instruction on how to perform this sequence, click on the Sequence #2 Explanation video below.
Upload Sequence #1 AND Sequence #2 in the same video, not two separate videos, as instructed on SlideRoom.
If you feel neither of these two sequences showcase your talents and skill, you may submit your own dance in addition to the Sequence #1 and #2 combined video described above. Your own submission may not be longer than one minute. This additional video will need to be combined with Sequence #1 and Sequence #2 into ONE video. Upload the video as instructed on SlideRoom.
