Philadelphia Based, Teen Dance Company Seeks New Cast Members

Share Article

"Music & Motion Dance is one of the few companies offering teens a chance to have professional performance experience unlike any other. This is not a dance school, there are no competitions, there are no fees, just a unique opportunity to dance, create and be part of a very tight knit cast that has come together out of friendship and a pure love of dance."

Music & Motion is seeking teen (ages 14-17), male and female dancers for the 2006 season.

Upcoming Audition Dates:

Sunday, January 8th at 2:30 PM ..... North Wales Studio, Montgomery County, PA

Sunday, January 15th at 2:30 PM.... Bensalem Studio, Bucks County, PA

Audition Format:

1. You will need to present to the dance company one piece under 3 minutes of what you consider to be your strongest dance style. Please bring your own music on CD.

2. You will be asked to dance with us for a bit, so please leave time.

3. And interview will be conducted and the program explained in detail. Parents are welcome and encouraged to sit in on this.

4. You will have an opportunity to mingle informally with the current cast to learn more about us and be sure this is a fit for you as well as for us.

If You Are Currently Affiliated with a Studio:

If you are currently affiliated with a studio, you will need to have permission from them to apply to our program. While we are not a dance school nor do we participate in dance competitions, many studios [much to my dismay] feel they have exclusive rights to their students. To avoid any potential conflicts, please be sure that your studio does not object to your trying out for another company.

What you need to know up front:

  • This company is comprised of teens ages 14 - 17 years of age.
  • There is no cost to you as a member of this company. No fees are charged ever. You do not pay for any costumes. This is considered a pre-professional dance company and all expenses are covered under grants we receive.
  • You should have at least 2-4 years of current dance training in any of these styles - ballet, jazz, tap, lyrical, modern, funk, or hip hop.
  • All members of the company are expected to contribute to choreography, show production and development of this group as a whole.
  • We are not affiliated with any dance school.
  • We do not pay for rehearsal time.
  • Rehearsals tend to fall on Sundays from 2:00PM - 5:00 PM each week.
  • Rehearsals alternate each week between two studio locations that we rent from - Bucks County Dance Center in Bensalem, PA [Bucks County] and a number of studios in Montgomery County located in the vicinity of the Montgomery Mall. If you are not willing or unable to travel independently to these locations, please do not sign up.
  • Most events booked are paid on a sliding scale, split equally between dancers based on client budgets. Average rate for a performance is between $50-150.
  • Music & Motion will look to take on several non-paying events during the year to achieve exposure for future bookings as well as provide community service to other non-profit organizations.
  • If you are in it just for the money or fame look elsewhere. If you are looking for an opportunity to create, have fun dancing and be a part of a unique performance experience then you will more likely be a match for our group.
  • The strength of this company lies in the individuals who make it up and contribute to it.
