Wasatch II

Wasatch II is designed to serve two important functions:

1. Provide performance opportunities for more adult dancers in Utah County, with lower commitment hours for those who still want to continue performing but cannot commit to a full company load
2. Create a space where dancers can improve their technical and artistic skills and familiarize themselves with the WCDC style

Wasatch II dancers take technique class on Tuesday nights (8:30-10:00 PM) and attend rehearsals 1-2 additional days per week. Thursday night technique classes are available to Wasatch II members but not required. Wasatch II dancers don’t pay any tuition but are in charge of a fundraising event.

-Must be 18 years+ to audition and participate on Wasatch II
-Must commit to the entire season (Jan-May 2019)
-Must bring audition application, dance resume, headshot, 30-60 second dance solo, and $15 application fee to the audition (cash, check, card and Venmo accepted)
