Costume Requirements: A completely floral printed outfit. Whether that means a matching two piece with a pant and bottom or a dress, etc. That can be up to you!
Counselors are expected to be on their best behavior! You are not only representing yourself, but The Camp PULSE brand as well. Your behavior in class throughout the week is just as important as your audition and interview. Please spread out throughout the classroom; do not huddle up around the front. The faculty sees your character as well as your talent during class, please be respectful of other dancers. You’re there to be an ambassador for our event and help others, remember that throughout this process!
Your Counselor Interview will be with the faculty on Thursday afternoon. We will be pulling you in 5 at a time starting with Pop Starz then Teen Team. You do not need to wear anything specific as you’ll be going straight into rehearsal. Just be natural and be YOU!
Tuesday July 10th, 12:00 PM & Saturday July 14th, 12:30 PM
Your Counselor Auditions will be held at the very beginning and very end of the week. It will just be Staff, Faculty and auditioning Counselors and Protégés. We will start with the Counselors then on to Protégés. You will be auditioning with a portion of your Counselor piece choreographed by Zack with some improv before and after, as well as any additional material the faculty would like to see. We will break you into small groups, and you will have the opportunity to perform twice, as we will switch lines. Please bring your Counselor number to this audition. If you are not going for Lead you will not be allowed during the room at this time.

We will also be announcing our Elite PULSE Protégés and Lead Camp Counselors for the 2018-2019 Season.
Please bring nice all black attire to wear for the closing ceremonies and Lead Announcement, as you will all come onstage. When the winners are announced, those that are announced will come to the front of the stage, state your name and where you received your training. You’ll then be presented with your award from the outgoing Leads and be able to hug the faculty and have your photo taken. Following the ceremony, you will have a meeting with Kristen.
As a Counselor you are required to dance in your designated level. You are not to take class in other levels.
