We take pride in providing an elite team of hand selected professionals consisting of technically trained dancers & singers. Our talent goes through an intense audition/interview process and then months of training, perfecting their craft, and learning our production show numbers. End result equals a high-energy, family-oriented, variety song and dance show for all ages consisting of many dance styles including Broadway, Tap, Jazz, 50's thru Current Hits, Country, Disco, Motown, Patriotic Military Tribute, Jackson 5, Swing, Contemporary & crowd interaction tailored just for our clients.
So the question is…what is the audition process like?
There are 4 rounds to the audition. Once a talent submits to audition with the company, DSP producers will then select which talent will be considered. There are many factors that the producers look for when selecting talent such as their dance or vocal training, how well they work with others and whether or not they are team players, how flexible (no pun intended) they are as far as scheduling and last minute changes, being the entertainment industry this is key, and their work ethic and dedication for learning a large repertoire of show material.
Round 1 the talent is asked to complete a detailed application. If their answers reflect what we look for, they will be advanced to Round 2. Round 2 is the video submission. The talent is given choreography and or songs to learn along with some questions so we can start getting a feel of their personality. If the talent meets all criteria, they are advanced to Round 3 which is the phone interview. After about a 30-45 minute phone interview, the producers then decide if the talent is ready to advance to Round 4 which is the Live Auditions. At the live auditions, the talent will meet the producers and perform live for them. We spend more time getting to know the talent including another intense interview and q & a. The talent also has an opportunity to learn more about us, what we have to offer, our history and what it’s like to be a company member.
After the talent completes Round 4 of auditions, our producers review all 4 rounds of the talents audition and decides if they will be chosen to become an elite member of our team.
Our favorite part of this process is “the phone call”.
Once selected, one of our producers will call the talent to congratulate them on making the team. After days to weeks of waiting on “the call”, as a performer that goes on audition after audition after audition, after years of training in the studio, after spending tons of money on recital costumes or after hearing “No” countless times, those few words mean everything: “Congratulations, welcome to our team”.
