Dakshina is seeking strong dancers (modern or ballet trained) to join DC based company
Dakshina/Daniel Phoenix Singh Dance Company is currently recruiting strong male (4) and female (2) dancers with a solid background in modern dance and/or ballet and release technique for a residency/performance during April 16-May 9, 2015 followed by an 18 month contract part-time contract for invited dancers. Rehearsals and performances are paid, but the company hours are only part-time so you will need to find another job to live in DC.
Dancers must be able to live in Washington D.C. between April 16-May 9, 2015 (accommodations provided if you are an out of town dancer) and be prepared to move permanently if offered a contract. If you can start earlier than April 16, please indicate that as well in your initial email.
Following the initial residency, a few dancers will be offered an 18-month contract that will begin June 2015. The Company performs a variety of works from Sokolow to dances influenced by the Indian form Bharata Natyam. All performances and travel expenses are paid, and dancers receive a rehearsal stipend. The Company has several local, national, and international performance opportunities in the 2015-2016 along with a strong outreach program in area schools and community centers.
Please include your dance resume, dance pictures, and online videos of your performance for immediate consideration. Rolling auditions till positions are filled. Email info for details about the project.
