Auditions - Junior Training Program

Ashleyliane Dance Company is excited for a new season of providing training, mentoring, and artistic development for young dancers between the ages of 13 and 18. We invite all dancers to audition for an opportunity to be a part of this growing pre-professional program developed and managed by Ashley L. Tate and directed by Ashley Claybrook. The season for this group is during the months of May-August. You can still be a part of your home studio and be a part of this program.

Each year ADC brings together 8-15 selected young dancers from diverse communities and backgrounds for intensive dance training, collaboration and performances. We strive to offer a high level of personal development and training and to prepare young dancers for the demands of today's dance world. While the repertoire is heavily based in jazz, contemporary fusion, lyrical and hip hop...we plan to expand this season....the possibilities are endless!

During the last 7 seasons, ADC's junior dancers have performed at Fair Saint Louis, St. Louis Dance Showcase at Edison Theatre, St. Louis Fringe Festival, Susan G. Komen Race for the Cure, First Night at Grand Center, Taste of St. Louis, RAW Artists: St. Louis, Dancewerks National Convention and Camp Kate in Chicago, among other events. Junior dancers have also been featured at The Pulse on Tour Dance Convention in Las Vegas and Fox 2 News in the Morning. They have also hosted their own annual show, typically held at the Mertz Dance Studio at Washington University in St. Louis.

A parent or guardian must accompany dancer during registration to sign permission and releases, if the dancer is 17 and under. Dancers can bring water and a nutritious snack, if desired. Auditions are closed to all spectators, including parents. No cameras, audio or video recording devices allowed.
