TAP is now auditioning for its 2022 - 2023 season! We're thrilled to welcome new members to our wonderful TAP family to help us better our community one performance at a time!
We are looking for students with a passion for singing and dancing, who are able to commit weekend time to rehearsals and performances. At this time, we are seeking members for our three performance groups:
TAP-N-Training (grades 5 and 6): an introductory season for TAP's youngest members.
TAP Jr. (grades 6 - 9)
TAP Sr. (grade 9 -12)
As a member of TAP, regular rehearsals are Saturdays from 9:00am to 12:00pm. All groups rehearse at The Bender JCC in Rockville, MD. We generally adhere to the Montgomery County Public Schools calendar for winter break, spring break, and holidays. Our community service performance schedule includes about two performances per month. Participants are expected to be at rehearsals and events, and any known conflicts are addressed directly with the TAP Artistic Team.
TAP will be performing before selected audiences of the elderly, sick, disabled, and financially disadvantaged. While we will work to prepare the performers to meet the needs of each of their audiences, any teen or pre-teen auditioning should be open-minded and giving of him or her self by nature. To ensure a cohesive group, absolutely no divisive behavior will be tolerated. Performers must be able and willing to work together and be mutually supportive at all times, on and off the stage.
This year, auditions will take place on Saturday, May 7, 2022 at the Bender JCC in Rockville, MD. Students should prepare:
32 bars of one ballad AND one uptempo song. Musical theatre songs are preferable, but are not required. Please bring sheet music, double-sided and in the correct keys or be sure to bring song track(s) in an mp3 format.
to learn and perform a brief dance combination. Please dress appropriately for movement and dance. Form fitting clothes and jazz or ballet shoes are preferable. Please also wear a mask that you can remove when you are singing.
Before your audition, please be sure to complete a TAP Audition Form. This form gives us a little more information about you and your reasons for choosing TAP! Your audition form can be found here! Upon recieving your form, you will be contacted with an assigned audition time slot.
