Opening & Closing of the 2023 Spring Dance Recitals

Aurora Dance Arts is pleased to announce the Cast Lists for the
for the ensembles of the Closing of the Pre Recital & the Opening & Closing of the Beg-Adv Recital in 2023.

The Cast Lists & corresponding Rehearsal Schedule for each cast can be found by clicking the buttons below. Please make sure to check all the lists, as some dancers have been cast in more than one routine. Please also make sure to read the rehearsal schedule & commitment expectations very carefully before accepting your casting.  

If you do decide to accept your casting, please make sure to either call the Dance Office at 303.326.8308 or e-mail dance[email protected] by Wednesday, March 1 by 5 p.m. to communicate your intention to dance in these routines. 

We are very proud of everyone that auditioned & we cannot wait to start working with all of you on these very special choreographic pieces!




Aurora Dance Arts is also pleased to announce that we will be holding AUDITIONS on Sunday, March 26 for CAMEOS for the 2023 Spring Dance Recitals!

What are Cameos, you ask? Another great question! Cameos are an opportunity for dancers, ages 8-19, currently enrolled in the Continuous Children's Dance Program to submit a dance routine of their own choreography for consideration to be performed at one of the Spring Dance Recitals (either Pre or Beg-Adv Level) on June 9 & 10.

Again, it is one of the missions of Aurora Dance Arts to offer a variety of performance opportunities to our dancers. We also believe deeply in allowing our wonderful students the chance to express themselves creatively by choreographing their own original works. This special opportunity allows dancers to perform an extra piece at Recital, offers dancers the chance to decide their own music/choreography/costuming in a creative process & allows dancers to experience a distinct way of performing outside of dancing as a group in their class pieces. Dancers must audition for this special opportunity & casting is very selective according to dancers' technical ability/knowledge, the creativeness of the choreography, their preparedness for the audition & their performance quality.

Please click the button below to see the details of these auditions along with the Cameo Audition Form that must be submitted prior to the auditions to display a student's intention to audition.

PLEASE NOTE: All Cameo Audition Forms should be submitted to the Dance Office by Friday, March 24, by no later than 5 p.m. Dancers may bring their audition form to the Dance Office in person or e-mail it to [email protected]

Having your Cameo selected to be performed in one of the Spring Dance Recitals is super fun & a wonderful honor. We sure hope that many of our wonderful dance students will consider submitting for these auditions!
