12 Female Corps Dancers needed

Dancers should have a strong ballet, modern and contemporary dance background. They should be dynamic performers with articulate musicality and ability to work in unison. Dancers may work with props and fabric.

The choreography requires individuals who can project a strong stage presence, which might be enhanced by a taller stature. While a taller build may complement the performance, we're open to considering diverse talents and will evaluate all applicants based on their skills and abilities.

Please bring ballet slippers or jazz shoes and wear comfortable, form-fitting clothing that is appropriate for movement.

Rehearsals begin on or about April 15, 2024.
Technical rehearsals begin May 3, 2024.
Performance dates are May 11, 13, 17, 19m, 22, 24, 25, 2024.

Rehearsals will take place at the Washington National Opera Studio in Takoma.
