Flow 40 is coming to Pamelot!

Flow 40 is a dance convention that is put on here at Pamelot. The dates for the convention are November 4 & 5. There will be choreographers that come from L.A. and the Bay Area. Their resumes include film, video, and commercials just to name a few. They will be teaching 8 classes total. 4 classes a day with a lunch break in between. They will be teaching 2 levels of Jazz, Hip Hop, Contemporary, Jumps & Turns, and more. It is an amazing opportunity to take from professional choreographers in the industry right here in our home. 
Pamelot welcomes and supports dance education for all. We would love to see all students who love to dance and wish to further their training. This is an open event for all qualified dancers.

2015-2016 Pamelot Company Auditions

OPEN AUDITIONS FOR ALL 3 OF PAMELOT’S COMPANY’S:   THURSDAY AUGUST 273:30-6:30PM
YOU MUST BE 9 YEARS OR OLDER.
Ballet Company, Hip Hop Company & Rhythm ‘n Motion will be auditioning together.  You must attend the whole audition even if you are only interested in participating in one company (for instance:  the Hip Hop company).  However, a dancer certainly can make and participate in all three companies. Please show up in proper dance attire (Ballet leotard and tights with Ballet Shoes.  Jazz bootie shorts with Jazz boot shoes and Hip Hop clothes with sneakers or boots) and hair up.   The dancers will know whether they make the company or not by the end of the audition.  They will also be given information that will explain the costs of being in the company(ies), dance class requirements & commitments and required performance/participation dates.  From there the dancer and you can discuss to decide if the dancer will or will not be able to make the commitment to the company(ies).  We want to encourage all eligible dancers to participate in the auditions whether or not the dancer thinks they will be able to make a company or the dancer/family thinks they will be able to afford it financially.  There are fundraising opportunities available.
Please let me know if you have any questions.  It is going to be a great dance year!!
See you in there!
