Open Auditions for the Ballet Afsaneh Performance Ensemble
Come dance with us!
Ballet Afsaneh is looking for 3 to 6 trained dancers interested in joining the company in spring 2016.
The Ballet Afsaneh performance ensemble repertory includes both traditional Central Asian dance forms and contemporary dance.
All dance backgrounds are welcome, but western dance technique is strongly preferred (modern dance/ballet/contemporary-urban et. al.)
Some (though not all) 2016 projects will require western dance technique.
Ballet Afsaneh company class and rehearsals are held Thursday evenings in Berkeley, with additional rehearsals for special projects scheduled as needed. Most performances are paid; rehearsals and company class are not.
A commitment to learning Central Asian movement and culture would be an asset for our traditional performance repertoire. Knowledge of a regional language or culture is also desirable (Turkish, Farsi/Persian, Dari/Tajiki, Azeri, Uzbek, Armenian, Urdu, Pashtu etc.).
Women and men are both welcome to audition, although some traditional dance styles are gender-specific.
What to Expect: 2 Hour Class format with a warm up, choreography, Central Asian movement combinations, across the floor.
What to Wear: Standard rehearsal/class attire – soft dance slippers or barefoot.
What to Bring: CV or resume if available.
Your sense of adventure and fun!
