Professional Dancer Auditions

Emotions Dance Company To Hold Auditions for Professional Dancers and for Its Youth Performance Company, EDC II
Orlando, Fla.—Emotions Dance Company (EDC) is expanding its talent and holding auditions for professional-level dancers age 18 and over. Dancers should have experience in ballet, jazz, modern and contemporary styles. The audition will take place on Tuesday, February 16, 2016 from 8:00-9:30 p.m. at Emotions Dance Studio (105 Melody Lane West. Casselberry, FL 32707). There will also be an open audition for EDC II, a youth apprentice performance company for ages 12-17 at the same time and date.
Dancers should come prepared for ballet barre warmup, across the floor with jumps and turns, improvisational movement, and a contemporary combination at the end of class. Dancers should prepare a contemporary piece (under two minutes) to audition for the artistic director. Female dancers who wish to do the ballet portion of the audition en pointe should feel free to do so, however, it is not a requirement of the dancers. Dancers must have strong technique and be willing to take artistic risks. Dancers must bring a professional resume and headshot to the audition. The professional company currently has three female and three male positions available. EDC II is currently accepting all qualified male and female dancers that wish to apprentice and perform with the youth performance company.
