DanceWorks Chicago Opens Auditions to Public, 12/15
DanceWorks Chicago welcomes the general public, free of charge, to observe a professional dance audition – an intriguing part of the dance world that is usually off-limits to the public. Take advantage of this unique opportunity to view the search for exceptional young dancers to join the DWC family. This innovative approach to an audition is compelling for its exposure to the possibilities of the body, the activation of the mind, the vulnerability and power of the spirit.
The auditions take place on Saturday, December 15, 2012, from 10:00 a.m. to 2:00 p.m. Doors open at 9:30 a.m. Audience members may come and go throughout the day. The Dance Center of Columbia College is located at 1306 S. Michigan Avenue, Chicago (on stage).
WHAT YOU WILL SEE: The audition will be conducted by Artistic Director Julie Nakagawa. Ballet class with eliminations will be followed by DWC repertoire. DWC representatives will be available that afternoon to answer questions about what's happening on stage. We hope you will come away with a deeper understanding and fresh curiosity about dance that will inspire your continued relationship with dance artists and their art.
