Performance: Call for Dancers- Arte Y Moda: a fashion show

Arte Y Moda, a fashion show of Cuban visual art designs.  The models for this fashion show are unlike typical fashion models and the creator of the show has asked that we hire dancers instead of models to showcase the designers’ work here in Washington, D.C.  We are looking to cast 10 female dancers and 6 male dancers.

 

About Arte Y Moda
