Are you crazy about dancing? Do you enjoy dressing up and putting on sparkly
makeup? Are you hard-workin', upbeat, fun, wacky, and an all-around groovy
girlie?? Then we want YOU to... AUDITION for San Francisco's THE

The Devil-Ettes are having their first auditions in two years and we're
looking for 2 fabulous go-go girls to join us.

Wait a sec, who are the Devil-Ettes?? Holy smokes, where have you been
hiding? Well, in case you haven't heard, we're San Francisco's one-and-only
synchronized go-go dance troupe! We've been described as the 'Rock-n-Roll
Rockettes' Kitchsy, Campy, Retro Cuties' and San Francisco's Sweethearts!
We've performed in Las Vegas, New Orleans, Los Angeles and of course all
over the Bay Area. We LOVE all ladies... big, small, straight, queer, any
age. We dance primarily to upbeat/rare tunes from the 50s-60s (so if you're
lookin' to launch your career as a hip hoppin' FLY GIRL or you like to take
it down to PASTIES, we may not be the group for you!).

We we don't make tons of cash, but we DO love to have fun and shake and
shimmy in the spotlight. The Devil-Ettes' success has been always been a
team effort and we're looking for girls who like to play nice in the
sandbox. No divas please! We have weekly rehearsals, various Devil-Ette
activities (like crafting props and costumes) and, of course, performances!
Are you ready to work hard AND have loads of fun?? Then what are you waiting

Sounds awesome! What do I need to do? Glad you asked! To become an
Audition-Ette, you must:

A. Read the 'Guidelines for being a good Devil-Ette'

B. Fill out the super important Fancy Questionnaire!

C. Create/choreograph your very own 1-minute audition dance.

'HELP! I'm not a choreographer!!'
Relax. We don't expect you to have any fancy choreography skills ‹ we're
interested in your spirit (and ok, let's be honest - your sense of rhythm!).
We want you to have fun choosing your music, your outfit and your dance
moves. This is supposed to be fun!

Once you come up with a one-minute dance audition, you have two ways to show
us your stuff: send us a tape OR perform it for us LIVE and in person at our
live taping. 

1. Tape your dance.
Send us a VHS tape or DVD of your very own a one-minute dance to us along
with your questionnaire. We must receive all video tape submissions by
Monday April 9th. The video can be raw and unedited. Please keep the video
to one minute (60 seconds). We won't watch your audition if it is longer.
Unfortunately no multi-person auditions are allowed (ONE person per video
audition please). 

Send your questionnaire and VHS video or DVD to:
Baby Doe 
Devil-Ettes Audition
2215-R Market Street #177
S.F. CA 94114 

You can also drop your video off at this address Monday- Friday 10-7pm. Be
sure to address the package to Baby Doe and please clearly LABEL your video
with your NAME! 

2. Performing your dance live!
If you don't have access to a video camera, don't fret. You can come to our
live video taping date on Monday April 9th from 7:30pm - 9pm and we will
tape your one minute audition for you! Please bring your completed
questionnaire to this taping at THE DARK ROOM (2263 Mission St, San
Francisco).  Again, only one person per audition please! NOTE: We're all
about personalities and for this reason your questionnaire will count as
much as your audition tape! So please fill it out completely!

D. Once we have reviewed everything, we will have call-backs for ten (10)
finalists! These lucky ten ladies will be invited to join us at a fun
two-day workshop. You MUST be available Thursday April 12th 7:30-10pm and
Sunday April 15th 4pm-6pm for this two part workshop - SORRY, NO EXCEPTIONS!

We look forward to meeting you on the dance floor!

XOXO The Devil-Ettes


XOXO - have a beautiful and creative day
