2018 Pistolettes Auditions!

Since the group’s inception, we’ve always taken on October as the month where we put out an open call for new dancers.  It’s something that we look forward to every year.  And if you’ve stumbled upon this blog post (our first, actually), then perhaps you’re here because you’re interested in joining out krewe!  If so, we’re super excited for the chance to see you at auditions.

But first, a little bit of info.  I (Jinxie) am not a very good writer, so you’re just going to have to be content with just getting bullet points.

Who: We’re a retro dance group (with a focus on the 60s, but we’ve covered dances from the 20s-80s) based in Dallas.  Our strength is in our diversity and our members have ranged in ages from 22-40something.  There’s no upper age limit with us, but we do ask that you be at least 21 years old.  Enthusiastic and energetic dancers of all skill level are who we’re looking for.  Race, size and gender are open too!  If you’re fun, peppy and just full of energy, you’re who we’re looking for,

What: Auditions.  Duh.

Sunday, October 29th at 3:00pm sharp!

How:

  • First step is to fill out the >> audition form <<, it’s available >>here<<  There we will ask you a bunch of questions.  Answer them as best as you can.  Please do what you can to fill it out and return it to use before the day of auditions, if you can.  If you can’t, don’t worry.  We will have some blank ones that you can fill out in person, prior to the audition.  Ahead of time is preferred, though.
  • The audition process consists of three sections: a quick warmup, followed by teaching everyone a quick bit of choreography, to be performed as a group; an “endurance challenge” where we will ask you all to dance for about the length of an average gogo set; question and answer, you ask us questions and we answer them.  The entire process shouldn’t take more than an hour and a half.
  • After auditions, we will contact everyone, typically within a week, with an update on your status.

That’s about it, I think.  If you have any additional questions, please feel free to address them to info@thepistolettes.com and we will answer promptly.  Hope to see you ALL at auditions!
