Best way to reach us through the pandemic is via email!
Fortitude Dance Centre's competitive program encourages dancers to push themselves, and their teammates, to be the best dancers they can be! If your child is eager for more performance opportunities and is ready to take their training to the next level, send us an email to arrange an audition for our 2020/2021 team!
Things are a little different this year... because of Covid-19 we have moved our auditions online! There are two ways to audition:
1. Schedule a Zoom meeting and audition LIVE with the studio director!
2. Submit footage of previous dance choreography highlighting turns, jumps, flexibility, and overall performance ability!
All dancers, including current team members, must audition to be part of the 2020-2021 season! We are looking forward to seeing you share your talent and hard work with us! Submission deadline is June 1st, 2020.

*Age is the jumping off point when deciding team placement but technique will be the deciding factor. At the directors discretion, some dancers may be asked to dance outside of their age bracket.
*Those looking to compete in Hip Hop alone can audition to do so without enrollment in the above noted classes. This genre is the only exception.
Dancers will be selected for competitive choreography after careful deliberation among their instructors. Just because a child is enrolled in a particular style does not automatically mean they will be asked to compete in this genre.
Opportunities for solos, duets, and trios will be awarded at the directors discretion and must be earned. Technique, performance quality, overall attitude, and attendance are all important factors in the selection process. Having a solo, duet, or trio in the previous season does guarantee the same opportunity in the upcoming season.
All team levels will compete in 3 to 4 competitions per season. Competitions will take place throughout southern Ontario.
