Audition

Thank you for your interest in Springboard Danse Montréal. We are thrilled to welcome artists back to the studios in Montréal next summer for our 20th anniversary edition! 

 

Springboard Danse Montréal: June 5 – 25, 2022

HOW TO AUDITION

Due to an overwhelming response to our in-person auditions and reduced studio capacity, pre-registration for all audition cities (NYC-MTL-TO) is full. Unfortunately, due to COVID-19 restrictions and sign in requirements, no walk-ins will be permitted in any city. Thank you to the artists who have applied; we look forward to seeing you in the studio.

Springboard Danse Montreal’s ecosystem is comprised of international dancers that represent a vast spectrum of movement training and backgrounds. In its selection of dancers, Springboard does not discriminate on the basis of sex, gender, sexual orientation, race, national origin, or socioeconomic circumstances. We warmly welcome all professional dancers over 21 years* of age to audition. 

*Participants must be over 21 years of age to attend the project. Therefore, depending on their date of birth, dancers may be 20 years of age at the time of the audition.

VACCINATION REQUIREMENTS

In compliance with the regulations set in place by our participating studio partners, Springboard will require proof of full vaccination for all auditioning and participating dancers. Furthermore, masks / face coverings will be mandatory at all times during in-person auditions and at the project in Montréal.

It is our priority for you, your colleagues and participating artists to feel comfortable and safe.

Additionally, please note that COVID-19 testing will be required to enter and exit Canada. The frequency, type and cost of testing may differ depending upon the individual’s departure city and airline, and the fees will need to be incurred by each individual personally. Read more about the Pre-entry testing and ArriveCAN requirements here.
