Audition for our New Releases Choreographers Showcase

Dance Place’s annual adjudicated showcase of new works by established and emerging choreographers from throughout the region will be held August 9-10, 2014. Auditions will be held in May 2014. Please check back in April 2014 for audition information or call (202) 269-1600.


Audition for a Resident Company

Dance Place has several professional dance companies in residence, including ReVision dance company, Dance Place Step Team, and Coyaba Dance Theater. Dancers are often selected from the class that the choreographer teaches, and sometimes general auditions are held. If you wish to join a resident company, the best way to find out more about auditioning is to take a class to become familiar with the movement and then ask the instructor directly about openings or auditions for a particular company. Dance Place also posts notices about auditions and other opportunities around town and regionally on our Job Bank.
