Dance auditions (paid rehearsal/performance)

J. Lindsay Brown Dance seeks 3-4 company dancers for their concert on March 1-2, 2019 and beyond. The company (established in 2013) has performed in almost every setting, from site-specific dances in the park to formal sold-out-standing-room-only concerts.

1500 w Elmdale Ave, Chicago
September 30, 4-7pm

Dancers will receive rehearsal and performance pay, and a variety of performance opportunities throughout the year, and will rehearse on Thursdays from 11AM-1PM in Evanston, and on Sundays from 4-7pm in Edgewater. There is NO audition fee.

Promising candidates will have strong modern/contemporary technique, a love for improvisation, and some proficiency in ballet and partnering. Many company works involve text and speech, so dancers should be comfortable with speaking onstage. A sense of humor and collaborative spirit is required.

Dancers should be ready to dance by 4pm. The space will be available starting at 3:30pm. Please bring a headshot and a performance resume. Digital copies not accepted, they must be printed.

At the audition, dancers should expect:
- improvisation
​- repertory
- exercises involving collaboration and speaking while dancing.

Dancers should also prepare a 1:30 minute(ish) solo, choreographed by the performer and showcasing their own unique style of movement. There is no need to dance pretty during this solo--we want to see the real you!

If for some reason you cannot attend the audition, please email Please note that the audition is in the same time slot as our rehearsals.
