Following auditions we will contact you in the week following the audition to let you know if you have been recalled and provide more information on how the recall will take place.
We would like to take this time to reassure you that we completely understand your space to dance might have been restricted at home. Perhaps you haven’t taken part in any online dance activity during this time or you might feel a bit overwhelmed by the audition process. We have taken all this into consideration and tried to create a process that reflects our normal HYDC auditions whilst being safe and in line with Government advice. We hope the audition process is as much fun as it is challenging!
We are in this together and we are here to support you in continuing to dance.
Looking after you in the building
We are carefully following Government Covid-19 guidance and all our audition places will be carefully monitored to ensure safe social distancing.
On arrival: Please arrive five minutes before your class time and wait at the garden stage (the area to the side of the theatre nearest to Leigh Road Recreation Grounds). There are currently no indoor public waiting areas.
Parents / Carers: Parents/carers can leave participants once they have safely been admitted through the garden stage doors.
Face masks / coverings: Face coverings are required at all times when moving through our buildings and for some activity. Your tutor will advise when masks can be removed.
Changing: Unfortunately we are unable to offer changing facilities whilst the building is set-up for social distancing. Please arrive ready for your audition in appropriate clothing.
What to wear and bring with you: Please wear comfortable clothing that you can move about in.
Please bring your own water bottle filled for the class, as our water fountains will not be in use.
Keeping safe & social around the building: Please use the hand sanitiser stations provided. You may be in a different room than you are used to, so we'd like to remind you to maintain a 2m distance from both classmates and staff and to follow the social distancing guidelines marked on the floor. You will be given instructions for leaving via the garden stage following your class. All our spaces will be thoroughly cleaned.
Toilets: Your instructor will let you know which toilets you should use – please bear in mind capacities will be limited at any one time.
