Auditions

The Redef Movement hosts auditions annually for new members. Dancers that have strong interests in Hip Hop, Breakdancing, Locking and Popping ( No experience necessary ) are welcome to audition.

 

 

Our Core Company allows any dancer over the age of 18 to audition. We are a performing AND training company.  New members are required to train weekly and be ready to learn new choreography quickly. While we do not necessarily require a dancer to be experienced in any of the styles we do, one of the things we look for is a dancers ability to absorb new techniques. Be willing to work on yourself as a dancer. Other things we look for in a company member:

  • Reliable Transportation

  • Long Term Dance Goals

  • Professional Attitude

 

Teen & Pre-teen dancers are not eligible to join the company until they are at least 18 years old.  If you are 14 to 18 years old,  we encourage you to audition for our Redef Apprentice Program. Whether or not you are affiliated with dance studios, this is how you can start performing and training from an earlier age. Dance studio dancers that join Redef begin their training as an EXTENSION of their regular studio classes, not a replacement. We urge our dancers to continue their education wherever their home studio is.  The training and opportunities received as a Redef dancer aim to strengthen each individual, sending them to their home studio with brand new, unexplored concepts.

Auditions are Closed!

Training

Weekly rehearsals are year-round and include technique and choreography in:

Breakin

Hip Hop

Locking

Popping

Every company member takes the techniques learned and applies it to other areas of dance.   Each dancer is required to learn how to choreograph, teach, freestyle and of course properly execute each style.  Dancers also get the option to choose a style they wish to specialize in and dig into tricks, gimmicks and even battle techniques.

For each style performed, dancers also are required to understand the history and important aspects that helped structure the genre.

Performing

This Movement is made to showcase and educate . Each  company member is a passionate, humble dancer who trains weekly  under the crew director. Our dancers have been featured guest artists in and out of state for professional showcases, benefits and fundraisers, half time shows and more.

 

We've been recognized at a number of battles and events for our creativity, individuality and respect for hip hop and dance culture.  Each and every Redef appearance follows a short set of rules in order to connect with a range of audiences:

The Arts - Emphasis on originality and unique approach to movement.

The Hip Hop Community - A loyalty to hip hop's rich history and respect for the roots of street dance.

The Professional Dance Community - Display of professionalism and understanding of structure, the dance world, & true education.

The General Public - Relatable and engaging performances that captivate audiences, dancer or not.

Producing Our Own Shows and  participation in other large scale events has come to the forefront of our focus.As busy as we get with the events we are invited to, this has become our primary work. Dancers who join us get to jump in as we do some of our latest projects.

A variety of concepts are being used as we host sold out shows of our own and join other artists on their own endeavors. Dancers get paid to perform, teach, and even choreograph depending on the event.
