Dancing Wheels Company & School
America’s Premier Physically Integrated Dance Company
Audition Notice for Wheelchair Dancers
The Dancing Wheels Company is currently seeking dancers, apprentices and trainees for employment in the 2008-2009 Season.
Dancing Wheels works with national and internationally acclaimed choreographers each year. Most recent works include full-length pieces from Rosalind Newman, David Rousseve, Rebecca Darling of Pilobulus, Nai-Ni Chen Company, Robert Wesner, Christopher Fleming and Dianne McIntyre.
Dance positions offer full 52-week contracts, competitive rates of compensation, and an opportunity to travel throughout the country and abroad (with all expenses paid).
The company is auditioning male and female sit-down (wheelchair*) dancers. Apprentices receive professional training, performance opportunities and a stipend. Trainees receive professional training and limited performance opportunities. Sit-down dancers do not need prior dance experience, but should be athletic, with excellent speed and wheelchair agility. Most importantly, potential sit-down dancers must possess a willingness to learn. All applicants should be comfortable with speaking in front of large audiences. The Dancing Wheels Company provides training in these areas.
Auditions will be scheduled on an individual basis and will include a full class with modern and partnering sections. Please bring resume, headshots and samples of work, if available.
Please call 216.432.0306 or email Mary Verdi-Fletcher at firstname.lastname@example.org to schedule an audition.
