Your worship solo should be set to a Christian worship song that speaks to you. If invited to come for an in person audition, you will be sharing your solo during the audition.
Part 4 • OPTIONAL DANCE VARIATION
- Dance variation of your choice
Please do not submit dance reels. If you have prepared a video for other auditions that meets most of our video requirements, please contact us to see if it is acceptable for our needs.
