Dancers must be physically fit, and well-trained in modern, ballet, jazz and/or contemporary.

► The Center for Contemporary Dance is auditioning dancers ages 8 – 18 for the following opportunities: Pre-Professional Program (ages 12-18), Performance Ensembles (ages 8-18), and Professional Apprenticeship (ages 16+).  Candidates must wear form-fitting black dance attire; ballet shoes are required.  Following the audition, parents and students will have the opportunity to speak at length with the Directors to learn more about program requirements. To schedule your participation, please e-mail info@thecenterfordance.org with the names and ages of all audition candidates.

► The Center for Contemporary Dance offers a performance-based education without recitals. All students, regardless of age or skill level, have the opportunity to participate in the professionally-developed concert that takes place on Sunday, December 6 at the Trinity Preparatory School.  Featuring students of all ages and the organization’s pre-professional dancers, MAKULU (mah-koo-loo) fuses West African and contemporary choreography inspired by the ecological phenomenon of the Great Serengeti Migration, which annually involves the unified movement of thousands of wildebeest and zebra across the African continent.  While dancers of all levels who wish to participate will be granted a role, intermediate/advanced dancers ages 8 and up are invited to audition for a featured role, which involves additional stage time and the learning of standout choreography in the context of group works.  Lead roles will also be selected during the audition.  Auditions take place on Saturday, August 29, 2015 at The Center for Contemporary Dance.
