An audition class will be taught by Marciano Silva dos Santos while Mário observes remotely. In addition to the audition class, each dancer should prepare a solo up to 1-minute in length that expresses who they are as an artist. Mário in particular is seeking dancers that have a variety of talents, including but not limited to diverse movement backgrounds, as well as skills such as singing, playing an instrument or acting. BIPOC artists are encouraged to audition.
