SURGE CO. AUDITION April 3, 2016

Sunday, April 3, 2016 – 12noon-2pm at W&M Dance Projects Bay 9 – 4005 9 St. SE

The SURGE Company provides a challenging dance experience for hard working, self-motivated young artists between the approximate ages of 19 to 25. The program focuses on training, self-exploration, and choreographic endeavours in a dance company setting to explore contemporary dance as a creative art form.

Each dancer in the SURGE Company receives personal direction, guidance, and encouragement under the Artistic Directorship of W&M Dance Projects, its artistic associates, choreographers, and rehearsal directors. SURGE Company members will train, create, and engage in creative process with some of Calgary’s leading choreographers. Informal showings and creation work provide performance opportunities to further foster the dancers’ development in this tuition-based program. The company is directed by Melissa Monteros and Wojciech Mochniej.

ABOUT THE AUDITION

SURGE is for dancers 19-25 years old (approximately) with some dance experience. The program is based in contemporary dance, but dancers with a strong background in other forms are still welcome to apply.

This workshop style audition consists of basic contemporary dance technique and across the floor work, as well as some short movement sequences and group exercises. There is NO need to come with any prepared choreography.

Dancers should come ready to dance in comfortable clothes or dance attire that allows us to see their basic body alignment. Please pre-register by email, and arrive early to sign-in. The company season runs September – November 2016 and January to April 2017. Weekly rehearsals are Mondays and Wednesdays 6-9pm, and Saturdays 10am-1pm.
