PROCESS DURING COVID-19
The Academy Audition panels will be taking into account the limited resources available to people during Covid 19. Applicants are to film only those dance steps they feel safe to execute, and should select those which get as close to the given criteria as possible. We appreciate that many people are in less than ideal circumstances and these factors will be taken into account by the panel during the discernment process.
