Auditions for 2020 Season
The Lady Hoofers Tap Ensemble seeks young women tap dancers age 10-18 for our 2020 Youth Ensemble to perform in our annual holiday concert, THE TAPCRACKER, at the Suzanne Roberts Theatre.
UPDATE 3/20: We are still planning to hold auditions for the Youth Ensemble at this time, however we will adjust as needed to accommodate video auditions dependent on social distancing needs. Please register online if you are interested in joining us next season and stay tuned for further details!

Note: Dancers only need to attend one audition date, not both. Dancers are expected to arrive 15 minutes early to check in. A parent or guardian must accompany each dancer for a brief orientation and to sign a photo and injury release form.
Dancers must bring an 8 x 10 headshot printed on glossy photo paper and their tap shoes. Note: Headshots do not need to be taken professionally but should feature the dancer’s head and shoulders against a plain background. Digital photos can easily be printed at Walgreens, Target, etc.
Dancers must be available for dress/tech rehearsals and performances in December 2020. Dates coming soon!
Detailed schedule subject to change; tech and performances will be at the Suzanne Roberts Theatre in Philadelphia. Select dancers may also have the opportunity to perform with The Lady Hoofers at promotional performances in October or November. Past seasons have included The Nutcracker Market at the Kimmel Center, RiverRink Winterfest, Franklin Square, and Headhouse Farmer's Market.
Weekly rehearsals will take place on Sunday afternoons from 3:00-5:00pm beginning after Labor Day. Dependent on casting, some dancers may be asked to stay for adult company rehearsal from 5-7:30pm on specific days. In November, all dancers should expect to stay as late at 8:00pm for full run-throughs with the entire cast. Dancers MUST ATTEND all Sunday rehearsals leading up to the Holiday Concert (no rehearsal will be held Thanksgiving weekend). Dancers who miss two or more rehearsals will be released from the company and their rehearsal fee will not be refunded.
