     HAMMOND – Southeastern Louisiana University’s resident student dance company, Dance Performance Project, will hold auditions Tuesday, April 12, for an upcoming dance concert.
     Called “Bayourella: A Story of Forgiveness,” the fall event will be directed by Dance Instructor Skip Costa. Selected choreographers are Joe Matherne of Baton Rouge, Lindsy Brown of El Paso, Texas, Lily Marcus of Denham Springs, Haley Jordan of Baton Rouge, Forrest Duplantier of Covington, and Courtney Self of Conway, Ark.
     “Auditions are open to all Southeastern students,” Costa said. “Students attending the audition will be taught several short movement phrases.”
     Auditions are scheduled from 2 to 3 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 1:30 p.m. to complete an audition form and for warm ups.
     If invited to perform, Costa said, students must register for one of the following dance courses:  DNC 300-01, Contemporary Dance (DNC 230 or 330) or Ballet Technique (DNC 140 or 240), and attend two rehearsals per week.
