HAMMOND – Southeastern Louisiana University's resident student dance company, Dance Performance Project, will hold auditions Friday, Dec. 5, for an upcoming contemporary dance concert.

Called "Movement Shifting" the spring event will be directed by Dance Instructor Skip Costa.

"Auditions are open to all Southeastern students, including incoming spring 2015 students" Costa said. "Students attending the audition will be taught several short movement phrases."

Auditions are scheduled from 10 a.m. to 12 p.m. in the dance studio in the Kinesiology and Health Studies Building. Costa said students should wear something that shows their form, especially on the upper body torso, and should arrive by 9:45 a.m. to complete an audition form.

"Movement has the brilliant power to shift lives, to shift emotions and to shift directions," Costa said.

If selected for the performance, Costa said, students must enroll in one of the following dance ensemble courses, DNC 106 for freshmen and sophomores or DNC 406 for juniors and seniors. Both courses meet from 2 to 3:15 p.m. on Tuesdays and Thursdays.

Students must also enroll in one dance technique course selected from the following: DNC 109-01 – Hip Hop Fusion; DNC 130-01 –Contemporary Dance I; DNC 132-01 – Social Dance; DNC 340-01 – Ballet III; DNC 330-01 –Contemporary Dance III or DNC 320-01 – Jazz Dance III.
