The Minnesota Conservatory for the Arts (MCA) invites young dancers, ages 5-13 to audition for “Movie Mania: Take 2” on Saturday, September 10 from 10am-1pm. Auditions will be held in MCA’s home, the Valencia Arts Center, at 1164 W. Howard Street in Winona.  We will audition dancers interested in tap, ballet, pre-ballet, hip hop, contemporary and musical theatre genres. Dancers are not required to prepare their own pieces, as MCA artistic staff will lead them in dance “phrases” during genre auditions. Students will audition in groups, as if they were in a typical class setting.

The creative force behind this Dance Repertory Company II junior concert include Artistic Director, Tammy Schmidt and choreographers; Jessica Dienger and Elizabeth Hinz.

Performances are December 2nd at 6:00 pm & December 3rd at 3:00 pm in the Academy Theatre at MCA’s home, the Valencia Arts Center located at 1164 W. 10th Street, Winona, MN. Tickets are $7 for students/senior citizens and $15 for adults. Tickets may be purchased beginning Nov. 7th in the MCA office during business hours or one-hour prior to the performance. Cash or Check only. Handicapped seating is available. For more information call: 507-453-5500 or email:

This activity is made possible by the voters of Minnesota through a Minnesota State Arts Board Operating Support grant thanks to a legislative appropriation from the arts and cultural heritage fund, Hiawatha Community Foundation, and Winona Community Foundation
