Join The Moving Architects for a Creative Movement class! Creative Movement is a joyful way to explore movement, develop physical skills, explore elements of dance, channel energy, stimulate imagination, and promote creativity. Creative Movement uses body actions to communicate images, ideas, and feelings, all in a fun and encouraging class setting. The Moving Architects will also be bringing their “Bubble,” an ethereal, cloudlike space to perform in. Please wear comfortable clothing.

The Moving Architects Seeks Female Dancers

By | Events

The Moving Architects (TMA), led by Artistic Director Erin Carlisle Norton, is currently seeking invested, inquisitive, and intelligent female dancers for projects beginning summer 2018.  Dancers should have a movement foundation grounded in ballet and modern dance forms with the ability to execute aggressive, physically demanding, technical, and articulated movement.  Additional skills needed: working intimately within an ensemble; ease with improvisation, movement manipulation, and partner work; and readiness for an investigatory rehearsal process. Rehearsals are Sundays and/or Tuesday evenings, and dancers are paid for performances as well as on a project-by-project basis. Preference is given to dancers available for an out of state residency August 7-11, and women of color are encouraged to apply.

TO APPLY:

Fill out form at link below, which includes a video link to a 2-minute solo improvisation and a headshot along with requested information.  Note: Dance reels will NOT be accepted or links to websites as video submission.  Application deadline: JUNE 12.  Select dancers will be asked to attend a company class on the afternoon of Sunday, June 24, in NYC.  Invitation to attend class will be made by June 19.

TMA hosts and produces the dance interview podcast Movers & Shapers: A Dance Podcast and heads the Community Movement Project, a pay-what-you-can movement program in Northern NJ.
