BDA Open Call Audition

THANK YOU to everyone who participated in the 2018 BDA Open Call Audition

at the Dance Complex in Cambridge on September 16

and especially to our gifted teachers Janelle Gilchrist for ballet, Kurt Douglas for modern/contemporary, Jim Viera for jazz, and “Lady” Elizabeth Pabon-Szebeda for Afro-Caribbean dance.




From a dancer:

This was my first time attending BDA’s open call audition and I was very pleased with my experience. The day was beautifully organized; there were no issues with disorganization in terms of registration or classes. Having just graduated my undergraduate degree in New York, I have just come back to dance in Boston. I found this opportunity to serve as a way not only to explore and network with many choreographers but also with dancers. I met some old peers, familiar faces from other local auditions, as well as networked with some new dancers. It brought the Boston dance community together for the day. I appreciate all that BDA’s open call audition does for the Boston dance community. Thank you.





From a choreographer:

We adore this event, and have found some wonderful dancers over the years.  The BDA reaches dancers we would never reach.
