For Dance Artists

Auditions, classes, jobs and opportunities for dance artists.

Auditions

Gwinnett Dance Project
Gwinnett Dance Project is seeking 5 passionate, hard-working, fun-loving dancers to be a part of our Fall 2020 season (3 months – end of September through December). Rehearsals will be held in Lilburn, GA (subject to change) and scheduled around the dancers’ availability to the best of our ability. A short technique / warm up class of varying dance styles will frequently be offered before rehearsal. Dancers aged 18+ with some exposure to modern, jazz, and ballet techniques are highly encouraged to audition, though ALL submissions will be equally considered. Dancers are expected to have access to reliable transportation.

We appreciate your interest in auditioning to be a part of our company. Our Fall season currently includes:
– a photoshoot on the morning of Sunday, September 20th ($30 per dancer due with final commitment form)
– dance film projects
– an outdoor showcase towards the end of the year (Tentatively early December)
Other performance opportunities around Gwinnett and greater Atlanta may arise.

This is an unpaid experience, but profits will be divided evenly between the dancers for ticketed shows. The Board of Directors is committed to making this an opportunity worth your time and energy.

AUDITION DEADLINE: Friday, September 11 at 11:59pm. Once received, your audition will be reviewed and you will be contacted no later than September 18th with a final contract of commitment to be signed. This means that your audition is not an immediate commitment, and you are free to change your mind if your circumstances change.

Pointe work not required, but must be very strong technically (and versatile in other genres of dance).

Vocal Release, Vocal Presence: Introduction to Fitzmaurice Voicework®
This four-week online course is for anyone interested in learning more about their breath and developing an open, expressive, supported voice. Participants develop skills to build their own practice, unleashing a voice that is connected, powerful, and authentic.

Fitzmaurice Voicework® centres on four primary areas:
1. Destructuring through somatic exercises to release the body from tension and to find a breath that is the spontaneous and free allowing emotions to come forth with ease.
2. Restructuring the breath so that the voice is supported and the performance is authentic without injury.
3. Presence to develop a fluid internal and external awareness while channeling whatever is present in the moment.
4. Play to engage fully with a spirit of curiosity and openness with whatever presents itself.

Where: Zoom
Cost: pay-what-you-can, sent to @VibranceCentre on Venmo
