DanceNorth: looking for new dancers
Dancenorth, one of Australia’s leading contemporary dance-theatre companies is calling for expressions of interest from male and female dancers for contracts beginning February 2010.
Applicants should have trained at a recognised school or conservatoire and have strong contemporary and classical dance technique. Dancenorth repertoire is highly physical and will often involve character development, so an ability to improvise and participate in the creation of choreographic material is essential. Understanding you will be part of a small company, and the need to make a commitment to living in the North of Queensland is essential in making an expression of interest. Auditions will be by invitation only and be held on Sunday, 18th October at Dancehouse in Melbourne, Australia.
To apply please follow the instructions as follows: Please complete your contact details and attach the following information then email directly to firstname.lastname@example.org by 15 September 2009.
Name / Date of Birth / Best contact email / Express why you are interested in working with Dancenorth?
Include a short Bio and a photo
From the above submission the Artistic Director will make an invitation directly to you by email to participate in the audition, in Melbourne. Selected participants should be prepared to take part in a ballet class, followed by performing a short solo of your own choreography that lasts no longer than 1 minute.
From this process a second short-list will be compiled and if selected you will then complete a set task and a brief interview with Artistic Director Raewyn Hill.
