Auditions for Choreographic Lab dancers
Auditions for two advanced Victoria-based dancers + two apprentices to participate in 3rd annual summer Choreographic Lab. * Pre-registration required.
What Dance Victoria is Looking For:
Dance Victoria is seeking four experienced Victoria-based dancers with pre-professional training in ballet/contemporary dance to complete its company of six dancers and two apprentices. The dance company will work daily, July 22 to July 26, and July 29 to August 3 participating in a 9:30 to 11:00 a.m. class. After a short break at the end of class, the dancers will work with one of three participating choreographers who will create new material based on a task given to them by the Lab’s mentors, Justine Chambers and Susan Elliott. At 5:00 pm each day, the dancers will show the work that the choreographer created that day for feedback. The day will end at approximately 6:30 p.m. each day.
On Saturday, August 3 at 5:00 pm, the public will be invited to see the best work developed through this process.
The intention of the Choreographic Lab is to provide professional development for emerging choreographers and dancers, gaining from new skills and experiences in an intensive, rigorous program. Dancers will emerge from the Lab with new insights and abilities enabling them to be responsive to the choreographic development process.
Dancers will be paid a total flat fee of $1,000. The two apprentice positions are unpaid.
