ONCE I’VE REGISTERED, WHAT HAPPENS NEXT?
Once registration is complete and payment has been made, participants will receive a confrmation email from Bridge. Further correspondence will also be sent out via email prior to the event.
WILL I BE OFFERED A JOB, MAKE A TEAM, BE CAST ON A SPECIFIC PROJECT, BE DIRECT-BOOKED, OR BE “SIGNED” BY ANY OF THE LINKS AT BRIDGE?
The intention of Bridge is for participants to obtain invaluable feedback from our Panelists, however it is not an audition. That being said, our Panelists have access to all attendees’ contact information should they take a particular interest in a given dancer or have a project for which they believe one of our attendees are suited.
DO I HAVE TO PARTICIPATE IN ALL THE CLASSES AT BRIDGE?
All attendees are required to participate in all classes. Reason being, in order for our Links to truly “see” the dancers and provide the best possible feedback, they need participants to perform in all the classes. Also, one of the greatest things about Bridge is that a given dancer may come to our event thinking they’d like to pursue a college dance team and through the feedback, ?nd numerous dance agencies interested in them and ?nd them very marketable commercially. Bridge expands a dancers scope of possibility and opportunity, but again, it only works if participants are fully committed to the event.
WHAT DO I WEAR TO BRIDGE?
All female participants in Bridge must wear a solid black sports bra or leotard and solid black trunks in the classes for both days of the event. Males must wear a solid black form ?tting top and solid black shorts. Prior to the event, all participants will be given their designated “number” which will be adhered to the chest of their top.
WHAT SHOES DO I NEED TO BRING TO BRIDGE?
It is advised that participants bring jazz shoes, soft ballet shoes, sneakers, and heels for females. Only bring heels if you have proper dance heels and have experience dancing in them.
ARE PARENTS/GUARDIANS ALLOWED TO OBSERVE THE CLASSES?
Observer passes will be available to non-Bridge participants at a rate of $100. The $100 fee also includes a financial aid workshop specifically for parents as well as an opportunity to have a Q&A session with the panelists. These observer passes are good for the entire event and the passes are non-transferable. Also, no children under the age of 12 are permitted in the classrooms. EVERYONE AND ANYONE choosing to participate as an observer must purchase a pass and they will be available for purchase on site based upon availability. When participants are broken up into the focus groups for Q & A’s with the Links, parents/guardians are invited to participate at no charge.
IS VIDEO TAPING OR ARE PICTURES PERMITTED AT BRIDGE?
Absolutely no photography or videography are permitted in the classroom. Pictures and/or videos are ok outside of the classroom.
