BDA Open Call Audition

Due to Covid-19 restrictions, BDA will not be hosting our

BDA Open Call Audition in September, 2020


We will, however, continue to post information about virtual auditions here,  jobs here, and special opportunities for dancers, choreographers and teaching artists, including grants, here



Each fall, Boston Dance Alliance presents a joyful day of professional development and community building. Dancers 18+ are invited to take up to four master classes, while choreographers are invited to observe and identify artists to be part of their upcoming projects.

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.
