Showstoppers

Showstoppers Dance Company provides extensive, high-quality performance exposure for passionate and dedicated students. Company members utilize their training to execute high-energy choreography that excites audiences year after year.

The Showstoppers Dance Company Offers a True Immersion Experience in a Professional Dance Environment

Selected from hundreds of students who audition, those fueled by the desire to perform and share stories through movement. The quick and intense rehearsal process takes place over a few demanding weeks. Also, the dancers learn challenging choreography taught by working professionals. As a result, these dancers are exposed to an audience of hundreds of people, over a two-week run of dance concerts at Raritan Valley Community College (RVCC) this June 2022.

We invite all dancers Amethyst Level and above to our yearly auditions that take place on January 22nd & January 23rd 2022.

Showstoppers Dance Company Contract 2020

Company Auditions 2022:

Auditions are Saturday, January 22nd & Sunday, January 23rd at our Bridgewater Studio

Important Note: We hold auditions this one weekend only and there are no exceptions. If you are unable to audition during your time slot (by level/style) you may audition during a lower level time slot. However, we don’t recommend this as your score will likely be skewed. This will probably cause problems in group and lead role casting because you won’t be adequately compared to your peers.

Casting
Showstoppers casting is based on:
1. Audition Scores & Class Level
Dancers are cast based on their highest class level and their scores in each audition. For example, if your dancer’s highest level is Ruby, then they will be placed in Showstoppers instead of EDGE because Showstoppers is Ruby, Sapphire, Emerald, Diamond & Workshop. Special note:  Ruby dancers in Showstoppers are double cast. Lead dancers in Showstoppers are double cast.
2. Class Attendance for Lead Roles
Dancers are required to attend 80% of their weekly classes in order to be considered for a Lead role in Showstoppers. Attendance is taken by the end of classes on April 2nd, 2021.
4. Broadway Dancers are required to be enrolled in a Broadway class at Gotta Dance in order to audition for Acting & Singing roles.
