Video requirements and submission:
Technique should be filmed in three separate videos of both the right and left sides.  Please record your strongest side first (example: one video for pirouettes, right side and then left side).  It is important that you stand far enough away from the camera so that I can see the top of your head, down to your toes.  You might need to record outside.
 
At the beginning of the dance, please introduce yourself with your full name, grade and middle school (if applicable).
 
Label all four videos with your first and last name and the demonstration (ex:  Jane Smith dances, Jane Smith kicks, Jane Smith leaps, etc.).
 
Please upload your videos to a Google folder (or an equivalent), labeled with your name and Advanced Auditions (ex: Jane Smith Advanced Auditions), and share with Taylor White, twhite@seq.org.
