        a short center warm-up using the rounding and arching of the torso

Part 3: Solo Performance (2 minutes)
If you are called back, you will be asked to perform one solo of your choosing, from repertory or original choreography, not to exceed two minutes in length. The purpose of the solo is to show you as a performer, and should be chosen to show your range as well as your ability to project.
You should be prepared to say the:
        name of the solo (if it has a name)
