Dance with Terpsicorps
Every year Terpsicorps hires anywhere from 6 to 12 dancers to perform with the company during the months of June and July. There is currently no formal in person audition. Instead we ask that those who have had a minimum of one year working with a professional company and are interested in participating for the summer, send us a video link of performance clips, photos and a current resume. Ideally, the video would include contemporary ballet, a short sample of something classical, partnering excerpts, and if possible, samples of choreography that shows both comedic and dramatic theatrical ability. Please note that most, but not all, company members have experience at the soloist level or higher, and will be expected to do work at that level.
We are also accepting apprentice level dancers for this season. This follows the same audition process, with the addition of one or more letters of recommendation from a teacher or director. Although it is an unpaid position, housing is provided and it is a great opportunity for networking with people from a wide array of companies and for gaining stage time for inclusion in your reel and resume.
Please note that all company positions, and female apprenticeships, are filled for the 2019 Season. If you are interested in a male apprenticeship, there is one spot available.
We will be accepting both company and apprenticeship applications for the 2019 Summer Season, which runs from May 27 - June 22, plus one week of rehearsal and performance in Winston-Salem, July 8-14. Availability for both sets of performances is required. Please send reels and resumes to Heather Maloy <firstname.lastname@example.org> between January 1 and April 8, 2019, with the intent to make decisions by April 18th at the latest. Please note that sometimes contracts may be given before the deadline, so getting your work in earlier is advised.
