Dakshina/Daniel Phoenix Singh Dance Company (based in Washington DC) is currently recruiting a strong male dancer with a solid background in modern dance and/or ballet and release technique for a 12-18 month contract starting August 2016. Dakshina has a multi-year partnership with the Sokolow foundation in restaging Anna Sokolow’s iconic modern dance works, works with Bharata Natyam (a South Asian classical dance form), and synthesizes the two forms in a unique three prong approach to dance.
We are looking for an energetic, committed, professional, and positive dancer. Candidates must be interested in educational outreach, and studying other techniques such as Bharata Natyam and Social Dance forms. Dakshina strongly encourages minority dancers to audition to work with the company. The company has several local, national and international performance opportunities in the upcoming months. Travel and performance expenses are paid, along with a rehearsal stipend.
Dancers may audition in person before July 15th, or during the first week of August, or by video at any time.
