DC based Dakshina is seeking strong male dancers

Dakshina is seeking strong dancers (modern or ballet trained) to join our DC based company

Dakshina/Daniel Phoenix Singh Dance Company is currently recruiting strong male dancers with a solid background in modern dance and/or ballet and release technique for a residency/performance during June 1-July 17, 2016 followed by an 12 month part-time contract for invited dancers. Rehearsals and performances are paid, but the company hours are only part-time so you will need to find another job to live in DC.

Dancers must be able to live in Washington D.C. between June 1-July 17, 2016 (accommodations provided) and be prepared to move permanently by August 1, 2016 if offered a contract. If you can start earlier than June 1, 2016, please indicate that as well in your initial email.

The Company performs a variety of works from Anna Sokolow to dances influenced by the Indian form Bharata Natyam. All performances and travel expenses are paid, and dancers receive a rehearsal stipend. The Company has several local, national, and international performance opportunities in the 2016-2017 along with a strong outreach program in area schools and community centers. Dancers who speak Spanish are especially sought to develop our bilingual dance program.

Please include your dance resume, dance pictures, and online videos of your performance for immediate consideration. Rolling auditions till positions are filled. Email for details about the project.
