2018/19 Troupe Auditions

Posted: Apr 27, 2018

We are pleased to announce open auditions for Excalibur's 2018/19 competitive troupe program!

Excalibur troupe dancers attend festivals, competitions, and workshops, showcasing their talent alongside the best in western Canada. For those with the passion and the willingness to dedicate themselves to dance, the rewards can be great--but the life of a troupe dancer requires hard work and commitment from both student and family. The rehearsal schedule is demanding, as are the expectations. It may not be for everyone, but for those who do commit to the challenge, the sense of camaraderie and accomplishment are well worth the time and effort!

Troupe students receive intensive training geared toward a competition environment. Classes and competitions require substantial dedication, commitment, and financial investment. Admission by audition ONLY.
