Those students who have demonstrated an ability to perform at a highly technical level in dance will be given opportunities to practice and perform individually and/or in small groups.

Those students who have demonstrated an ability to perform on other instruments such as woodwinds, brass, keyboard, percussion, etc. will be given opportunities to practice and perform individually and/or in small ensembles.

may apply. In addition, the following is required:
A minimum of 2.0 grade point average in core academic classes (e.g. Language Arts, Mathematics, Science, Social Studies)

Also, placement is based on audition results. Parents/Guardians are to contact Rainbow Park Elementary to schedule an audition as soon as possible. Please call our school at 305-688-4631 and ask for the magnet dance/lead teacher, Kathy Pilafian, or the magnet music teacher, Jessica McCloud to schedule an audition.
Auditions are held on specific Wednesdays after school at Rainbow Park Elementary at 2:30 pm. Parents/Guardians and their children are to sign in at the Main Office upon arrival.
The only thing students need to bring with them is a copy of their
latest report card grades. They do not need to bring anything else or
have anything prepared. Students auditioning for the magnet dance
program will be expected to take off their shoes and socks before the
dance audition begins.
