We are creating new work, have several performance opportunities coming up, and need additional dancers. If you are interested in performing with our company here's your chance to demonstrate your readiness.
Our next audition will be Sunday, February 11th from 10:00 am to 1:00 pm. It will take place at our resident home, The Russell School of Ballet located at 14119 Sullyfield Circle #O, Chantilly, VA 20151. If you are interested in working with our company contact us.
You don't have to bring anything (like a solo) with you to the audition. If you have a resume, that would be nice, but it is not required. Leotard and tights are not required for the audition, but be prepared to discard extraneous clothing as the warm-up process continues. We need to see alignment, but movement is the most important element. The audition will have an improvisational element. Bare feet are a definite plus, but bring socks in case the floor is sticky on the day of the audition. We are not sure sure of the temperature these days, so bring a sweater or something to begin the process until you get warmed up. It's free. Please contact us if you have questions.
As you might suspect, we are available for performances, residencies, workshops, and other projects. Let us know if you'd be interested in some aspect of our work. We strive to share exciting and meaningful experiences.
