Open Auditions

San Jose Taiko is a world-renowned arts company that performs across North America and the globe sharing the dynamic art form of taiko drumming. We are looking for potential talent to join our training program which feeds into our professional company.

San Jose Taiko's performance style is a fusion of athleticism, musicianship, dance, and martial arts. Ideal candidates are experienced in at least one of these disciplines. Interested in challenging yourself and becoming a part of our cultural arts community? Join us for an hour-long audition to find out!

Pre-registration is required and will close 24 hours before the Open Audition.

Open Auditions are closed events - unfortunately there are no guests or observers allowed.
