Éclat preparing for third season open auditions

Éclat Dance Youth Company dancers are working hard on the last details of Grand Divertissement.

Éclat Dance Youth Company was created in September of 2014 to serve as a high level supplemental dance training for serious, talented and dedicated young dancers seeking to better prepare themselves to enjoy a successful career in the professional dance world or simply to enjoy the various benefits one can obtain through the demanding discipline of dance.

Éclat Dance Youth Company dancers are working hard on the last details of “Grand Divertissement,” its second annual performance.

“Grand Divertissement” will be presented on June 12 at the Sid Williams Theatre, and will showcase  work by guest choreographers Courtney Hunchuk, Josh Haban as well various classical ballet pieces staged by the resident choreographers of the company.

And now, in preparations for its third season, the company has announced the dates of its upcoming open auditions will be on May 7 in Courtenay and May 8 in Qualicum Beach.

Among the news for the company’s third season, is the creation of a junior company, which will audition and work with dancers of ages between 10 and 13 years old.

On set dates, the junior company will join the senior company for challenging and inspiring integrated work where together they will work on the creation of a piece meant to promote the sense of union, team work and mentorship in our dancers.
