We're currently auditioning dancers ages 5.5 up to 17 (unless special approval is made by the director). We' will be looking at flexibility, basic ballet , tap, and jazz techniques, focus and discipline of each auditionee, and stage presence/personality.
Audition is done in two phases:
- The May auditions are for general admittance into CCJC company and are held by the director and ballet mistress of the school.
- The second phase will be conducted by a panel of 3 to 4 master teachers during the 2013 Summer Intensive, scheduled for June 20th-23rd. All dancers looking to join petites, juniors, teen, and senior company levels (anything but mini or basic entry level of company, are required to take the summer Intensive for level placement.
- Please wear fitted dance clothing with hair pulled back for the audition. Please bring ballet slippers (if you do pointe, bring pointe shoes),tap, and jazz shoes for the audition .
There is a $25.00 one time audition fee which includes the second placement audition during our summer intensive. This fee does not include the cost of the summer intensive but is required of all dancers wanting to join CCJC company.

The Columbia City Jazz Company is a not-for-profit organization. We are supported through grants, corporate donations and member fund-raising efforts. There is a membership fee, and we do expect participation from each family and dancer to help us meet our budget goals each season. The funds raised help pay for company costumes, choreography and the overall operating budget of the group.
