The Project
Twenty-Ninth Fall Season: Monument – ARENA DANCES’ artistic director, Mathew Janczewski, and fellow collaborators Dustin Haug, Leslie O’Neill, and Laura Selle Virtucio seek dancers to remount several repertory works including a male-identified quartet (huddle), mixed quartet (Gershwin Suite), and mixed septet ensemble (Navigations), that will perform September 10-15, 2024 at Luminary Arts Center.

Professional dancers of all ages, backgrounds, and experiences who also have a knack for learning off video are encouraged to apply. Applicants will be asked to improvise, as well as learn phrase work. We are looking for diverse performers who are creative, collaborative, and expressive. Must be available starting mid-June to September 2024.

In-person auditions are given priority. If you are unable to audition in person, you may submit a short video (under 5 minutes) in your registration form. Please include improvisation as well as performance footage.

Rehearsal schedule to be determined amongst the ensemble.
Dancers are paid $20/hour for rehearsals and a flat tech week/performance run of $700.
