We probably don’t have many readers in the 6-13 age bracket, but if you know a kid who loves to dance you might want to consider telling them about this:
Auditions for the NETS Kids dance team will be held Tuesday, August 4 at the NETS Practice Facility, 390 Murray Hill Parkway, East Rutherford, NJ. The NETS Kids are presented by LTJ Arthur, the apparel retailer.
Registration will begin at 5:30 p.m. and the auditions will start at 6:00 p.m.
The NETS are seeking boys and girls ages 6-13 with at least two years of technical dance training. Dancers will be asked to demonstrate their ability to learn and perform choreography. Tumbling and break-dancing skills are a plus, but not required. Participants should wear dance attire and non-marking sneakers or dance shoes. One parent must be present at registration to sign a participation waiver.
In advance of the auditions, the NETS will host a NETS Kids Audition Prep Class on Monday, August 3. The class will be held from 6:30 p.m. – 8:30 p.m. at the NETS Practice Facility. Participants will learn actual NETS Kids choreography from the NETS Dancers and receive audition tips from NETS Kids Coach Debra Bisignano and NETS Entertainment Manager Kimberlee Garris. Call 201-635-3147 to register.
I was fortunate enough to watch the NETS Kids in action earlier this year, and I believe the correct technical term to describe them is “really, really good!”
