If you happen to on here trying to find out whether or not you should audition for EKU Dance Theatre I would advise against it unless you are an avid Modern Dancer! If you only do Ballroom you will be ousted and even if you make it into the first Ballroom piece you audition for you will eventually get cheated out of ever making it into another piece if the "Modern Favorites" are Auditioning and unless you have connections I would not even audition for the Modern pieces because they choose half of their dancers before auditions even begin. They are a group of hoity toidy richy rich clones of one another that will not tolerate some one who is not exactly like them. Thank you for your time.

It's all about who you know and who your friends with. There are some good dancers but more than half suck. They just know the right ppl. And the clogging piece sucks now that the boy is gone.

I agree with the original poster.

I was encouraged to join by a roommate who was one of the "Favorites" and enjoyed my first semester but after a falling out between myself and the aforementioned roommate I was not welcomed back. Even though I was one of the better dancers in the group, I was not selected for any of the pieces I auditioned for because my roommate had turned everyone against me.

EKUDT will never be a quality dance group until the drama, backstabbing, and "clique"ish nature is left behind for what matters - who is talented and who is not talented.

You're horribly wrong. All of you. There's always been members of EKUDT that aren't the best dancers. If people don't get invited back it's because they were given a chance and did not do enough to prove themselves to us, so we don't have them back. Also none of us are "richly rich". We have to pay to be in dance theatre and buy our own costumes. I'm broke as hell. And if you think our dance world is though you better not try being a professional. It's a hard knock fucking life out there and it's even more pick and chose in the real world. No, we are not the greatest dancers ever but we do the best with what we've been given. Don't take your frustration of not making it back into the group out on us. It's your own damn fault.

Alsoooooo the reason you didn't make ballroom is because there were only two guys that could do it. As in two couples. As in two girls. Simple math :D

I always took my daughter to see it until it started getting to vulgar! Some things they do aren't for children. But my favorite was always the clogging piece. I did see one without the guy and it wasn't near as good but it wasn't horrible. I danced when I was younger and some of the kids have talent.
