Audition Sign Up Form

We are so excited to have you join us for our 2024 Auditions.


  1. Fill out the form below

  2. Be on the lookout for the audition choreography videos for your age group. Dancers will have to learn the steps on their own and present it on audition day in groups
    (Videos will be emailed to the addresses provided on this form)



The Merge Dance Collective Team is selected by audition process and spends a year dedicated to learning routines, touring regional and national competitions, performing for the local community, and are immersed in additional opportunities such as conventions/workshops, modeling, content creation, scholarships, and more! The final MDC team is selected from dancers that audition at Prodigy, and our Richmond sister studio, Barre None. Learn more about the MDC team here!


MDC auditions will include combinations in Jazz, Tap, Contemporary, and Hip Hop. The team regularly competes in these dance styles as well as Musical Theatre, Lyrical, Acro Dance, Heels, and more!


We are looking for male and female dancers between the ages of 5 to 18 who are interested in showcasing their talent and being a part of our award winning team! MDC accepts dancers at various competitive levels from beginner to advanced.

Potential, Passion, and Performance quality are what stand out at auditions!


Choreography videos will be sent out upon registration to all who sign up for auditions. Each dancer will need to learn the choreography for their age group on their own. On audition day, we will be viewing the choreography for each age group and determine the 2023-2024 team based on their presentation. Additionally, we will ask dancers to demonstrate progressions, basic skills, stretches, postures, etc.

If a dancer wishes to be considered for a solo, they will have to audition separately on the same day and improv for the audition judges.


To increase your chances to making the team, dancers should:

  • Attend our FREE Audition Clinic (see above section)

  • Be currently enrolled in some form of dance, gymnastics, and/or cheer class

  • Stretch, strengthen, and work or basic skills

  • Makeup is optional; but if it makes your dancer feel great then go for it!

  • Bring your best moves and energy! Auditions are about showing off what you do best, make sure we see it!
