Explore performances based off of the rich history and culture that Hip-Hop offers us

For our first 10 years, Beat Addikts United has been a Hip Hop forward company. Our dances have been 80% Hip Hop but we give our FIFTEEN choreographers artistic freedom to just CREATE! This has seen the influence of Musical Theater, Contemporary, Ballroom, and so many other styles make their way into our pieces.
2023 introduced our first ever "Classical Technique" pieces. This is meant to work in reverse of other BAU pieces. For a decade, we have introduced Hip Hop dancers to other styles and friends that are open minded and willing to explore MOVEMENT. We would like to offer the same for those that are more comfortable in a leotard and tights!
The same age requirement of 8-19 is mandated to be considered for the classical technique pieces but our team of choreographers have put together a recommended skill list for those looking to audition. Dancers should be familiar and adequate with the following skills:
- At least one strong split (Right, Left, Center)
- Strong double pirouette on atleast one leg with the ability to do different styles on strong leg (ex. Parallel, attitude, pencil)
- Standard Leaps with at least one leap variation (ex. calypso, switch leap)
Not required, but be prepared to attempt:
- Fouettes a la second or traditional for a minimum 8 count or a similar turn combo
