Marching Ballerinas to Kick Off Spring Auditions
The South's most beloved college dance line, the JSU Marching Ballerinas, will “kick” off its 2018 season with auditions in April. Those interested in joining the line are invited to attend the audition clinic weekend on April 7-8, 9 a.m. to 5 p.m., in Kennamer Hall and Pete Mathews Coliseum.
During the clinic weekend, the Marching Ballerinas' dance styles will be taught and applied to audition routines. Hopeful Ballerinas will learn two audition routines - a traditional and modern dance. The line’s traditional or kickline style dates back over 50 years and is modeled after the Radio City Rockettes. The modern dance is a jazz dance ranging in styles depending on the year and the season's show theme. At the end of the second clinic day, candidates will participate in first cut auditions. Approximately 50 candidates will be invited to final auditions the following weekend, April 14.
Candidates are made up of high school seniors, JSU students, transferring college students and returning Marching Ballerinas. All potential Ballerinas must be accepted to or attending JSU by the first day of clinics. Be part of the tradition - audition to become a Marching Ballerina!
