We are currently seeking male and female dancers. Audition for us!
Sunday, January 10, 2016
1:00pm to 4:00pm
Lou Conte Dance Studio at Hubbard St. Dance Center
1147 W. Jackson, Chicago
Dancers must be available for rehearsals on Mondays and Thursdays from 9:00am to 1:00pm and some Sunday afternoons and be available for performances February 26 & 27 and March 18-20, 2016. Contract includes Company class, and rehearsal and performance pay.
Qualified candidates will possess a strong technical background in ballet, modern and contemporary dance and performing experience. Knowledge of aerial techniques is a plus.
If you have a resume and photo, feel free to bring them, but don’t make any special effort to produce these things especially for this Audition. We mostly just want to see you dance.
We won’t teach a warm-up, so feel free to come early. All dancers should be ready to dance at 1:00pm.
Giving Tuesday is December 1. If you’d like to be a part of this awesome national giving campaign *and* be a dance producer, here’s your chance.
On February 26 & 27, we will premiere our latest work, “Your nearest exit may be behind you,” a group work for 8 dancers that combines contemporary dance and circus acrobatics. To fully produce this new work, we’ll need about $7,000. We’ve already raised the first $1,200, so we’re off to a good start (thank you to everyone who’s already donated!!).
You can be a part of the premiere of “Your nearest exit…” by donating to help produce it. Any amount you give will be greatly appreciated, but if you contribute $100, we’ll give you a huge thank you *and* 2 free tickets to see premiere in February (a $60 value!). Donate here.
So, by giving to us on Giving Tuesday (or anytime, really…) you get so much done: you get to participate in a national day of giving, you get to be a part of the Nearest Exit premiere, and if you give $100, you’d get 2 free tickets to see it. Its a win-win-win. Give today.
We are excited (and thankful!) to be presenting “First Draft,” a showcase for the new work of 4 Chicago dance companies.
