BDA Open Call Audition

What a great day we had at the  2016 BDA Open Call Audition September 18!

Once again, Brookline High School was the setting for the 2016 gathering to create community and increase employment opportunities for dancers in the Boston community.

BDA members Michael Winward and Ellice Patterson sign in auditioners at the front desk.


With a very special slate of master teachers– Erica Cornejo for ballet, Billy McLaughlin for jazz, Carl Alleyne for hip hop and Daniel McCusker (stepping in at the last minute for Tommy Neblett — thanks!) for contemporary/modern, it was a memorable day of free classes.

Allyson Esposito of The Boston Foundation was on hand describing new opportunities for Boston-area choreographers. Check the information out here.   Melissa Buffer-Trenouth, MSPT offered free 15 minute 1 on 1 physical therapy screenings throughout the audition.


We are especially grateful to Brookline High and Christien Polos for hosting us!

We look forward to the 2017 BDA Audition next September.  In the meantime, please post your Audition notices on this website to attract new colleagues and collaborators.
