I am the choreographer-in-residence at Boston Center for the Arts this spring; they will be producing a full length show of my company Vimoksha, in which I will bring back old works, and also set new pieces on new dancers. This is a paid gig, and will receive publicity.

I am looking for two male dancers and two female dancers to include in the show, on whom I can set new pieces. The shows will be on June 9th and 10th.

I will be holding an informal audition/free class of my technique, so that I may see which dancers would fit the pieces.

Wed., Jan. 18th: 4-6pm, Green Street Studios, studio 1

Thu., Jan. 19th: 4-5pm, Green Street Studios, studio 2

Thanks very much, and I hope to see you there!

Tony Williams Ballet Company, producer of the Urban Nutcracker, is auditioning for company and non-company members for an as yet unnamed, modern, rock & jazz ballet to be performed at the Oberon in Harvard Square. The show will take place from May 25-27, 2017.

Rehearsals will begin the first week of February, typically on Tuesday/Thursday during the day and Satuday/Sunday during the afternoon/early evening. You must have available 3 out of 4 of these days to be considered for most pieces in the show due to the fast rehearsal period.

We are looking for VERSATILE male and female dancers over the age of 18 (women with proficient pointe skills) who easily mold into other dance styles, including more acrobatic, modern, tap, jazz, etc.

We especially need dancers who are very charismatic and have a heightened stage presence. You should be familiar with popular rock and jazz music from the past fifty years from hard rock to pop music.

Urbanity’s new choreographic intensive is designed for emerging and even more established choreographers, ages 17 & up, who want to dig into their craft and explore their artistic voice. Join a tight knit group of seven emerging choreographers for a week-long intensive with Urbanity’s founder and director Betsi Graves. Learn different approaches and perspectives in choreography, gain feedback on your own work, undergo creative challenges, and grow as an artist and dance creator.

Students take daily choreographic composition classes and dive into their own work, using dancers from the Urbanity community, and create a piece to be showcased at the end of the program. Students are offered personalized mentorship and feedback throughout this process. In addition to developing their choreography, students gain insight into administrative skills necessary for any choreographer, including applying for funding, advocating for their work, marketing, and gathering their creative dream team.
