What We Are Looking For
First and foremost, we are looking for dancers who are willing to take on the time commitments of rehearsals for the 2020-2021 season (which will take place Thursdays from 7:00pm to 9:00pm, with some additional rehearsals required for the month of the show. There are a few community events and fundraisers to attend as well). If this isn’t a commitment you feel comfortable making, but are interested in still performing with us, we welcome you to perform as a guest artist for one of our performances throughout the year.
Aside from the ability to consistently show up and participate in rehearsals, we are looking for people who love dance, performance, and/or collaboratively create theatrical productions. Someone who is dedicated to the idea of self-improvement, and who has the courage to put themselves out in front of an audience and perform.
Worried You Don’t Have Enough Dance Experience?
We are a very welcoming group of dancers, all of whom at one point or another had to start with the basics. Dancers with very little experience are welcome to join us as understudies, which can be very useful in accelerating your improvement in dance both technically and from a performance quality standpoint. We do recommend some very basic familiarity with ballet, jazz, and/or modern dance (at least six months) as a starting point. If you have never danced before, but want to start, please contact us and we can put you in touch with class resources (even for adults!) and welcome you as an understudy once you get some basics down. Danced in the past and are just feeling a little rusty? Come and try out. You might be surprised by how much your mind and body remembers.
We promise performance opportunities for dancers no matter how close to the beginning of their dance journey, whether it is with The Dance Eclectic or The Dance Eclectic Studio.
