  • MONSTERS SHOW NOMINEES

    These dancers were selected out of hundreds to be nominated for the Monsters Show. All nominees receive a VIP Tour Pass, enabling them to attend unlimited Monsters conventions free for one full year. At the tour's end, Monsters faculty members review the audition footage and select the cast. For many, this selection validates years of hard work and investment in their craft. Through this project, we aim to develop professional, hard working and determined performers who will entertain for years to come.

     

    As of last year's show, Monsters released its inaugural KIDS CAST, where dancers 14 and younger go through a similar nomination and selection process. Kids Cast nominees receive 3 free Monsters weekends of their choice, and those chosen for the show have the opportunity to perform alongside the Cast in several routines. They are then part of the next generation of dancers eligible to be selected for the main Cast when they are older.
