Annual Auditions

October 19, 2024 | 8:30am-1:30pm1810 N. Main St., Santa Ana

Why should I audition?

The Wooden Floor is not a dance studio. We are a creative youth development organization that uses the power of dance to help children access higher education.

  • A path to college – 100% of The Wooden Floor’s graduates immediately enroll in higher education, with most students eligible for merit-based college scholarships, totaling up to $10,000

  • Free dance education and performance opportunities

  • Free tutoring and college and career readiness services

  • Free health and wellness services, family counseling and parent workshops


What do I need to know?

 We are looking for students who:

  • Demonstrate enthusiasm and a love for movement
  • Are in the 3rd through 5th grade on October 19, 2024
  • Have financial need

Children do not need any dance experience and should not have anything prepared for the audition.

Doors are open from 8:30am-1:30pm. Students in line by 1:30pm are guaranteed to audition.

Children must be accompanied by a parent or guardian and should wear comfortable clothing. Children will be asked to remove their shoes and go barefoot during the audition.


What is The Wooden Floor?

Founded in 1983, The Wooden Floor transforms the lives of young people through a long-term approach grounded in exploratory dance education to foster the confidence and gifts within each child to innovate, communicate, and collaborate – skills necessary for success in school and in life.

The Wooden Floor is dedicated to serving students with financial need at no charge.
