DanceWorks Chicago to Allow Public to View Professional Dance Auditions, 11/23
DanceWorks Chicago (DWC) 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 and join us as we 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.
DATE: Saturday, November 23, 2013
TIME: 10:00 a.m. - 2:00 p.m. Doors open at 9:30 a.m. Audience members may come and go throughout the day.
PLACE: The Dance Center of Columbia College, 1306 S. Michigan Avenue, Chicago (on stage)
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.?
