Calling all dancers for the Spectaularts Super Crew auditions

Spectacularts dance auditions

This Sunday, Spectacularts are searching for the Borough’s best dancers to be part of their spectacular street arts festival, taking place in Bedford town centre on 7 September.

The open auditions are being held at Bedford Heights on Sunday 7 April between 9am – 12.30pm.

Said organiser, Sharon de Leonardis: “We are so excited about our plans for Bedford’s first Street Arts Festival. We have a vision to create a power group of Bedfordshire dancers to parade through our town in a spectacular moving show.

“We are auditioning for fun and vibrant performers from across Bedford to come together and form an all inclusive team. We are passionate about bringing together dancers from different backgrounds to create a fusion of dance styles to wow our audience.”

The auditions will be split into three age groups:

Ages 5-8 (9am-10am).
Ages 9-12 (10-11am) Please arrive at 9:45am.
Ages 13+ (11am-12:30pm) Please arrive at 10:45am

Anyone interested must register in advance and further information can be found on their Facebook event page.

Sharon’s advice to would-be performers is: “Be confident, be energetic & be yourself! Not only are we looking for talented dancers, but we want to see some fantastic personalities. Show the real you, interact with others and let yourself shine bright!”

Sunday’s dance workshops include Zumba warm up, Hip Hop to Afro Beat choreography.
