In an effort to prioritize the safety for our candidates, the Halifax Thunderbirds Dance Team will roll out a VIRTUAL audition process for this season, which will be broken up into 3 rounds. This new carefully designed process allows us to fulfill our ongoing mission to provide equal consideration for all candidates and establish a first-class performance team for the 2021 season. The registration window will open on Monday, December 7th, and the deadline to submit your preliminary videos is January 1st, 2021.
