Evaluation System


All UnitedSalseros performance groups strive for high quality in technique, expressions, choreography and presentation (the higher the level, the bigger the challenge). If the current standards do not apply to you, it may be possible that your level is not suitable for this group yet (or it may be possible higher). Please take a moment to try objectively rate your skills with the following chart below. For this level, anyone who auditions must be confident to have a strong familiarity or proficiency with the following information below (meaning you have at least a basic knowledge of the technique required as well as the ability to control the speed, size, direction and angle of each movement executed singularly or as an organic whole).

For the most part, anyone auditioning for Group should be confident enough to mark themselves at least a rating of 3 of all categories to be suitable for the group. The above-mentioned only serves as a guideline and our assessment during your audition may be a different outcome as many factors may influence them (you may just simply do better than what you have scored yourself or vice versa, and/or the number and the caliber of people auditioning would either elevate or lower the acceptance standards of the group. In the event that you feel that this group is not suitable for you and the challenge (not to mention the commitment) is a bit too high, Group 4 audition will be the next suitable performance group for you. Auditions for Group 4 will be on September 2012.

Please contact me (Teddy) directly @ Teddy@unitedsalseros.com if you are uncertain how your current skills measure up to the chart. Thank you.
