Ultimate Transcendent Auditions

About :

  • Ultimate Transcendent winners in each age division will have the chance to travel with Transcend and assist the renown Transcend faculty and “Professional Assistants” in the 2021-22 season. This is an amazing opportunity to grow as a dancer and assistant, build life-long connections in the industry, and receive extra training and classes at Transcend each weekend.
  • Currently, auditioning dancers must be attending the Summer Intensive in-person (virtual participants are still eligible for other scholarships).
  • Auditioning dancers must be willing to commit to attending a minimum of 3 cities in the 2021-22 season.

Who:

  • Transcendent Winners and Runner-Ups from the 2020-21 season are automatically eligible to audition.
  • Due to continued COVID and travel restrictions this season, we will be extending a FAST PASS opportunity to allow any dancer to audition for the Ultimate Transcendent title through a pre-qualifying round.

Fast Pass:

  • If a dancer did not receive a Transcendent Winner/Runner-Up title in the 2020-21 season (beginning Fall 2020), but still wishes to audition for the Ultimate Transcendent title – please select the FAST PASS option during registration. This will include a pre-qualifying audition round.
  • Dancers registering for the FAST PASS round do NOT need to also register for the Ultimate Transcendent Auditions. If the dancer advances to the general audition round, no extra fees will be owed.

Fees:

*Dancers must be registered for the full Intensive in order to audition.
  • General Audition Fee (2021-22 Transcendent Winners & Runner-Ups): $50
  • Fast Pass Audition: $75
