HOW TO AUDITION🔍❓

In light of the recent and projected rise in Covid 19 cases due to the Omicron variant,

we have made the decision to do AUDITIONS virtually. 


1. All members (new and old) must fill out student application here by 12pm, January 9th at noon. 


2. You will then get a YouTube link on January 10th, where Angelica & Jahaira teach a short sequence. 

 

3) You then have two full days to learn and record yourself doing the sequence,

and send it back to Inlakechdance@gmail.com by 5pm, January 12th at 5pm. 

THIS IS A HARD DEADLINE NO EXCEPTIONS. 

THERE WILL BE A MANDATORY VIRTUAL ORIENTATION: January 31st from 7-9pm. 

 

 In-Person Rehearsals will start on February 1st at "Flying Studios" in Oakland CA. 

📣 COVID - 19 Protocol for In-Person Rehearsals 📣 

 

All Team Members must show proof of COVID-19 vaccination.

 

We are requiring that all team members be fully masked during rehearsals, with n95/kn95 masks ONLY.  We will have one mask to supply at first but you will be responsible to always attend rehearsals with this particular mask. 

 

Rehearsals will be conducted in a large space with open doors.  

We also have four huge floor fans to keep our rehearsal space ventilated and safe as possible. 

 

We look forward to training and dancing, and sharing the stage with you in a safe and supportive environment. Together we will get through these times. Stay safe everyone. 

What People Say

Quotes_edited.png

I love dancing with Jahaira and Angelica. They bring passion and chemistry when they are on the dance floor. Watching them dance makes me want to dance harder. They are incredible teachers who are driven, who have a vision and inspire those that take classes with them. Jahaira and Angelica have made learning a new dance style fun  and forced me out of my comfort zone which I am grateful for. I adore them!
