The girls performed a freestyle routine in groups of eight before the field was narrowed. Additional choreography was taught to the hopefuls, ending the day with a group of finalists chosen.

The finalists attend additional boot camp sessions before the final auditions held on Tuesday, July 1, when the 2014-2015 squad of roughly 14 dancers will be named.
