We are continuously holding open auditions for our TAP Jr. and TAP Sr. ensembles. We are looking for elementary, middle school, and high school students with a passion for singing, dancing and acting who are able to commit weekend time to rehearsals and performances.
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.
For auditions, students should prepare to sing up to 32 bars of one ballad and one uptempo song. Musical theater songs are preferable, but are not required. Students will also learn and perform a brief dance combination. Please bring sheet music in the correct keys or be sure to bring song track(s) in mp3 format. Students should also dress appropriately for movement and dance. Form fitting clothes and jazz or ballet shoes are preferable.
As a member of TAP, regular rehearsals are Saturdays from 9:00am to 12:00pm. Both 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 event and performance schedule includes about two performances per month for each group; some will be joint events. Participants are expected to be at rehearsals and events; any known conflicts are addressed directly with the TAP Artistic Team.
If you are interested in scheduling an audition time slot, please contact us via email at firstname.lastname@example.org.

"You should audition for TAP because it's so much fun and a really good way to use your love for music and dance to benefit the community as a whole."
— Anna, TAP Jr. Class of '25
You should audition for TAP because it will help you grow as both a performer and a person. The environment is great and gives you confidence in your performance skills. You will also make so many new friends who eventually become a second family."
