- Audition information for dance, deconstructed-

We are currently accepting audition videos for dancers who are interested in being cast in the upcoming fall dance concert, dance, deconstructed. Choreographers are creating works in the genres of modern/post-modern, contemporary ballet, classical ballet, and tap, to be performed in site-specific or theatrical venues. Rehearsals will be held through a combination of Zoom and small, in-person rehearsals. The dances will be video recorded on campus during the week of Oct. 11-18. Dancers who are cast will be enrolled in THTR 202, a 1 credit performance practicum. Casting will be completed during the first week of rehearsals and all auditionees will be notified via email.

  1. Using your cofc account, access and complete this google form https://forms.gle/x3okUGBUi88914pz7
  2. Watch the audition video at https://youtu.be/ia2IpV5KZ64; learn the phrases.
  3. Develop a short 30-second improv/phrase inspired by these three words: CELEBRATION, SLEEP, AND SPIRIT. You may choose to perform your improv with music of your choice or in silence.
  4. Record yourself on video in the following order: modern phrase, ballet phrase, improv phase and tap phrase (if you tap).
  5. Make sure you are only submitting the phrases as one video file, preferably as either a .mov or .mp4.
  6. Name the video with your last name and “audition:” (ex: McLaine audition.mov)
  7. Email the video to mclaineg@cofc.edu with the subject line labeled the same as your video file (McLaine audition). Please make sure that I don’t need to request access to view your file. If the file is too large and you need to send it through Google Drive, please email me to let me know.

All the choreographers will watch the videos to make casting decisions; please try everything (except if you do not tap) so that we can see as much of your dancing as possible. Personality and professionalism are important. Dress in leotards, leggings, or other fitted clothing so that we can see body alignment and movements clearly. Secure your hair off your neck and do not wear large jewelry. Do not worry about fancy production values in your video: we are more interested in seeing you move.

Please complete the google form and submit the video by Saturday, August 22 by 5pm. If you have questions or concerns, please email mclaineg@cofc.edu or text 610-570-4388.
