All dancers attending the 2014-2015 Ohio State University Dance Team Tryouts are expected to complete the sessions as required in their entirety. It is also expected that dancers who tryout are fully committed to attending The Ohio State University-Main Campus for the 2014-2015 Season.
APPEARANCE: Please be aware this is an important part of the selection process. You should be "game ready" at all times throughout the weekend. This includes hair pulled away from your face and make up. It is very important that you remember you are trying out for a very high profile position representing The Ohio State University and should dress accordingly. DO NOT wear anything during the selection that features another school or university and all tattoos should be covered.
WHAT TO WEAR: On Friday and Saturday you may wear color of your choice, but your outfit should be form-fitting and allow the judges to see your lines. Dancers are not permitted to wear anything branded with Ohio State or OSU Dance. On Sunday you must wear a solid black leotard/tank top and black jazz pants/shorts. Interview attire is business casual.
DESIRED TECHNICAL ELEMENTS:
Note: The above skills are desired, not required, elements.
INDIVIDUAL COMBINATION: Dancers are required to choreograph a 4-count of eight combination that emphasizes their strengths and highlights their skills/style. All dancers will perform their combination on the first day and music will be provided. The song choice will be a popular song of a consistent tempo. Judges will be evaluating the candidate on the difficulty and uniqueness of the skills included as well as individual style demonstrated.
