Company Auditions:

Odyssey Dance Theatre will be presenting their final Thriller Season Sept-October 2022. Rehearsals are expected to begin August 29, 2022.

Odyssey will conduct the 2022 Thriller Season Company Auditions with the following protocols:

  1. Odyssey will conduct the first round of local auditions via video submissions. Odyssey will provide a video of several dance combinations (Ballet, Jazz, Tap, Hip-Hop, Contemporary, Ballroom) that the dancer will learn and videotape themselves doing. Each of the combinations should be edited together and then posted and sent back to Odyssey along with their pictures and resume’s for consideration.
  2. Out of State submissions – anyone out of state should follow the above procedures to prepare their own submission and should get their application in by June 24th, 2022. Also include any performance reels you might already have available. If circumstances allow – those chosen to attend the live audition should then make travel arrangements to Utah for the July 9th live audition. If unable to attend the live audition – Odyssey will contact those they are interested in and schedule an interview via Facetime or Zoom.
  3. ALL other submissions should be posted to Odyssey no later than June 29th, 2022 at Midnight.
