They are currently looking for girls and boys who are excellent dancers for a new dance show created by Kenny Ortega, who directed all of the "High School Musical" movies. I know they are also looking for strong girl dancers and many ensemble dancers. I don't think there is any singing in the show, but I'm not sure. If you or your child has an agent or manager, you may want to ask them to submit you, since they are seeing kids in New York and LA.

Hi Julie, you may not know the answers to these Q's... but here goes anyway...Do you have to have an agent to submit? Do you know if they are accepting submissions from kids that don't live in NY or LA? Do you have to be in NY or LA on the interview dates? Is there a web-site or anything that we can go to to read more about this show/tour? Thanks!
