Bravo has announced a new dance competition reality show entitled "Step It Up." Contestants will be expected to perform in all genres of dance, from ballet and ballroom, to music videos and burlesque. They are looking for trained and self-taught dancers, so if you haven't been in dance school for 15 years, you can still try out! If you think you have what it takes to succeed, then download the PDF application from Bravo.
Open calls will be held in New York and Atlanta this week. Remember to bring these items with you to the audition/open call:
1. A 1 minute choreographed piece of your dance style along with music in a compact disc (CD) format.
2. You must come dressed in dance attire and appropriate footwear to be considered. You will be tested on your dance ability in areas such as strength, balance, and versatility. We recommend bringing a workout towel and water with you to the audition.
3. Open Call Lines will begin forming 2 hours before the start time. Please do not line up prior to that. Time is limited and there is no guarantee that everyone will be seen-so please arrive early.
