The Moving Architects Seeks Female Dancers

By June 1, 2018June 4th, 2018Events

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.


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.
