Auditions

Thank you for your interest in auditioning for Winifred Haun & Dancers! Auditions for the January to June 2016 contract period will be held:

Sunday, January 10, 2016
1:00pm to 4:00pm
Lou Conte Dance Studio at Hubbard St. Dance Center
1147 W. Jackson, Chicago

We are currently seeking male and female dancers. Dancers must be available for rehearsals on Mondays and Thursdays from 9:00am to 1:30pm 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.

No pre-registration required. 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. The Audition will go like this:
1. We’ll teach an adagio combination and make cuts right afterwards.
2. We’ll teach a jump combination and make cuts right afterwards.
3. About 8-12 dancers will learn Company repertory.

Decisions will be made by Friday, January 15. You’ll be notified by phone.

Some dancers may be invited to participate in our Associate Dancer program, which allows qualified advanced dancers to take Company Class for free and to attend rehearsals to learn Company repertory. Associate Dancers are often invited to perform with the Company, and many current Company Dancers were former Associate Dancers.
