SundanceX conducts ongoing and individual auditions for strong dancers throughout the year. Dancers should be: minimum of 18 years of age, well-trained in ballet (women with strong pointe work), have strong partnering skills, and experience in contemporary/neoclassical ballet + some modern background; have a strong, eager work ethic, open mind, willingness to meet challenges with a positive attitude; available to commit to rehearsals (3x/week +) and performances. Some rehearsal pay + honorarium for performances available.
To audition, applicants should send via email:
Resume with personal stats including name, contact info, age, height, weight, hair color, training, professional experience, citizenship status.
Headshots, Dance Photos: 3 or more (full-length body) classical & contemporary photos, including action shots (no shots posed outdoors).
Audition video link on Vimeo or Youtube, with classical and contemporary/neoclassical variations (unedited/no quick cuts, full-length body view only), and brief ballet class work (females en pointe).* NO videos edited with one musical selection played over a view of various dance performances. Musicality is extremely important.
Audition Fee $15.00
Dancers residing in the Greater Boston/Southern NH area will be better able to work with SundanceX.
Communication is critically important, both throughout the audition process and while working with SundanceX.

Following review of audition materials, the dancer will be notified if the director is interested. The dancer will learn if an audition by taking company class is the necessary next step. Foreign dancers must have been previously awarded an O-1 visa to be considered.
* Video Audition Information (Accompaniment must be with classical music only please.) Keep it brief, preferably under 5 minutes. The reality is that within the first 30 seconds of most videos, we usually know if you are a dancer of interest.
