WHAT TO EXPECT AT THE AUDITION
The audition consists of a 3-hour class based on our method The Wave Within. There will be a warm up, followed by some movement exploration to generate a physical sequence, interaction with others and a presentation of the results to the class. We feel this is the best way for us to evaluate your artistry and for you to get familiar with Mare Nostrum Elements.
