Along with a world-class school that trains young people in classical ballet and the allied arts, the organization boasts a professional ballet company of ethnically diverse artists who perform a demanding and eclectic repertory on international stages.
In addition to the return of the performance season, I also wanted to make you aware the company is seeking classically trained dancers at the principal and soloist level, with auditions taking place in January and February 2012.
Accomplished male and female dancers are encouraged to submit audition reels and resumes online at http://www.dancetheatreofharlem.org/dth-company-auditions between now and January 5, 2012. Select individuals will be invited to audition in person in one of four cities:
San Francisco January 14
Miami January 28
Chicago February 5
New York February 25
On the day of the audition, dancers should have $20 for the audition fee (cash only); a resume; proper ballet attire, including pointe shoes for women; a headshot and a full-body dance photo.
Virginia Johnson, former DTH prima ballerina and founding editor of ‘Pointe’ magazine, succeeded Arthur Mitchell as Artistic Director of DTH in 2010 and would be available to speak to you about the auditions, the upcoming season, and other exciting developments with the company. Laveen Naidu, Executive Director of DTH, is also available. Thanks so much, Lee, and I look forward to hearing from you soon about the possibilities.
