Dance Panda Auditions

Dance Pandas is not your typical dance team. We do a wide variety of dance styles throughout the year, with a flexible schedule that allows most students to balance dance with other activities. You do not need formal dance training to try out—it’s not all flips, tricks, and turns, although we love those things too!

Members of Dance Pandas will perform in the NDA Showcase and choir concerts, as well as at NDA basketball games and Covington Catholic football games. There are opportunities for both trained and new dancers in the 2019-2020 season, and you don’t have to sign up for every performance to be part of the team. Rehearsals will be after school and dancers only need to come to rehearsals for the dances they’ll be performing in.

Come out to auditions August 12 and 14 and meet the new Dance Pandas instructor, Hope Pauly! Ms. Pauly would like all students to attend auditions, even if you’ve previously been a member of the Dance Pandas, so she is able to meet and get to know everyone.

Already know you want to try out? Great! Sign up for the two-day audition clinic August 12 and 14 here:  Dance Pandas Auditions 2019

If you cannot make the audition clinic, you will be able to submit a video audition for consideration. Contact Ms. Pauly for further instructions at

Monday, August 12, 4 p.m. – 6 p.m. — Learning Clinic in the Auditorium
Before the audition clinic begins, there will be a brief, informal meeting. We will discuss the upcoming season, auditions, and more specifics of how the group works. After, we will learn three auditions combinations (pom, kick-line and contemporary) and you will be able to sign up for your August 14th audition slot. Those interested in auditioning must attend both days of the clinic for consideration or contact Ms. Pauly to submit your audition video mentioned above if you cannot make it.

Wednesday, August 14, 4 p.m. – 6 p.m. — Auditions in the Auditorium
Small groups will perform their three audition combinations in 15-minute time slots in the auditorium. Dancers should arrive warmed up and ready to go.
