Musical Theatre Dance Ensemble Auditions

We have adopted the same procedure for invitation into the Musical Theatre Dance Ensemble as we do with our Jazz, Tap and Intensive Training Program Dance Ensembles.  The audition will consist of a general musical theatre class in front of a panel of artistic staff who will consider each child’s singing, acting and dancing abilities.  This chosen group will take part in the Manitoba Dance Festival and will represent the RWB School.
