WINONA, Minn. — On Saturday, Sept. 7, the Minnesota Conservatory for the Arts’ Dance Repertory Company (DRC) will hold auditions for the DRC II Winter Showcase. The 2019 theme will be “Animals on Parade.” This exciting dance concert will feature ballet, jazz, tap, hip hop, and modern dance, set to music with an animal theme.

Dancers ages 5-13 (who have taken at least one session of dance class) are invited to audition for the junior performance troupe, Dance Repertory Company II. Dancers do not need to prepare anything for the audition; they just need to come ready to learn short dance combinations and wear comfortable clothing.

Auditions are free, but chosen participants will be required to be enrolled in one dance class at MCA and to pay a performance fee. For more information, visit, email, or call 507-453-5500.
