Urbanity — Professional Dancers
Urbanity Dance is excited to announce auditions for its Professional Company for the 2016-2017 season.
We are seeking male and female dancers with diverse movement backgrounds and a variety of skills. All movers, regardless of experience or training, are encouraged to audition. We are more than willing to train positive, open-minded, and collaborative dancers that come from non-contemporary backgrounds.
Audition–What to Expect:
The audition works as a class, including ballet tendus, pirouettes, a modern release combo, leaps across the floor, improvisation exercises, and a final combination. Those who are asked to attend individually scheduled callbacks may be asked to learn additional phrase work, and/or perform a 1-2 minute solo (either choreographed or improvised). Please bring music and prepare ahead of time.
