The Village of Orland Park Recreation Department will hold auditions for its Dance Company on Thursday, September 5 beginning with a mandatory parent meeting at 6:15 p.m. The company is open to dancers in sixth through twelfth grades.

The Dance Company is for the serious dancer who will be required to take the Company Technique Class on Mondays, in addition to company rehearsals on Thursday evenings.

The fees for the program include the technique class and rehearsals for 31 weeks plus two costumes for the annual recital in June and various appearances.

Fees may be paid in full or with a payment plan. Rehearsals and classes follow the same schedule as other dance classes, September 16 through December 12 and January 13 through May 30.

The cost for the Dance Company is $600 for residents and $750 for non-residents. The program is led by veteran Dance Instructors Colleen Panega and Kristin Lux.

Auditions will be held at the village’s Cultural Center Dance Studio, 14760 Park Lane, beginning with the mandatory parent meeting at 6:15 p.m., followed by the 6:30 p.m. auditions.
