AUDITION FOR THE “DIRTY DANCING” ROUTINE TO BE PERFORMED IN A NYC DANCE PARADE
October 19, 2019 @ 11:30 am - 12:45 pm
There is an amazing annual dance parade in NYC which will be Saturday May 16 next year. It’s a 1.4 mile long parade route down the streets of Manhattan.
The parade producer is interested in having a group of dancers from the DC metro area come up and do a version of the Dirty Dancing routine (https://youtu.be/TEHy3bchPJc) in the parade.
How cool is that?
If you are an experienced dancer and think this sounds really fun, contact Barb@DanceInTime.com about an audition. Please include your contact information and a summary of your dance background plus a video of your dancing if possible.
Initial auditions will be held October 19, 2019 at 11:30 am. The auditions will be in the Social Hall of the Chevy Chase Baptist Church (5671 Western Ave NW; Washington DC). This is 5 blocks from the Friendship Heights metro. Enter the church through the back corner door at the intersection of Belt Rd NW and Northampton St. NW. At the audition, dancers will get more information on the rehearsal schedule and plans for the NY Parade.
Note that the Dirty Dancing routine is basically a Mambo, which is closely related to Salsa. If you have never done these Latin dance styles, you may want to attend a DanceInTIme (or other) Salsa class to get a little background in those dances.
