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.
