Auditions for the 2017-2018 Virtuosity Competitive Company for Lyrical, Contemporary, Jazz, Ballet, and Musical Theater have passed. To set up a private audition, please contact Diana Alcomendas at Miss.Diana@virtuositypas.com

For the 2017-2018 Virtuosity Competitive Companies for Tap and Hip Hop, dancers will learn competitive choreography throughout the summer and have auditions for those routines during the final week of summer intensives.

Our final Guest choreographer for the 2017-2018 season will be teaching two routines August 14-16th. (Pre-register online or call our office)


Final LCJ & Hip Hop Routine auditions
Tuesday, August 29th from 2:00-5:00pm
There will not be a group warm up, or review, so please plan accordingly. Dancers are allowed to wear any dance attire they choose, and it is recommended (but not required) to have several choices of footwear. If a dancer is unable to attend this date or time, you must set up an audition time with Miss Diana. Early audition times can be held anytime before the 29th, not after.

Competitive Tap Auditions
Thursday, August 24th from 3:30-5:00pm at our downtown location. Dancers will have the opportunity to learn two tap routines, and are encouraged to audition for both pieces. Miss Kelsey will be teaching a Contempoary/Tap piece, and Miss Michelle will be teaching a Broadway Tap piece. Please pre register online, or with the office



Traveling Troupeā€¦
Every four years, we take a group of dancers (approximately 25-30 dancers) on a Studio Trip. In 2014 we participated in the Disney Youth Program for Performing Arts in Orlando, Florida. Dancers involved took part in 1-2 workshops taught by Disney Cast Members, and performed our Traveling Show on the Downtown Disney Main Stage in front of a huge crowd. And of course, we had park hopper passes to have fun in the parks! Four years prior to that, we attended the same program in Disneyland.

The 2018 Studio Trip is still being planned, and if we have enough participants, we will begin learning our traveling show in the Fall of 2017, for travel in the Summer of 2018. This will be open to any dancers in the Competitive, or Prep team programs. Families are encouraged to attend.


The summer competitive program is as follows…


For the Summer of 2017, dancers are required to take part in the Summer Intensive program that runs with two weeks on, and one week “off”. The dates are July 10-21st, July 31-August 11th, August 21-31st, 2018.
