ORLANDO BALLET ANNOUNCES LIVE AUDITIONS FOR EXPERIENCED DANCERS
Company is adding new talent as it readies for another bold season
ORLANDO, FL. – Wednesday, June 30, 2021 – Orlando Ballet will host a live audition next month for experienced company dancers as they prepare for the 2021-2021 performance season. Auditions will be held at Harriett’s Orlando Ballet Centre from 11 a.m. to 1 p.m. on Saturday, July 10, 2021. Registration will be held from 10:30 to 11 a.m.
Orlando Ballet believes it is the only professional ballet company to perform a complete season during 2020-21, and is seeking experienced, company-level dancers. Orlando Ballet will also accept video and remote auditions from experienced professional dancers who cannot attend the audition in person.
“This past season clearly proved that Orlando Ballet is committed to building very strong and respected professional organization and we are planning for more dynamic and ambitious productions next season,” said Executive Director Cheryl Collins. “With Covid-19 squarely behind us and the strong support of our community, we are now focusing on providing competitive wages and benefits to our dancers.”
Orlando Ballet has open positions for both male and female dancers. Those auditioning must be 18 years or older and there is no fee to audition. Dancers are expected to bring a professional resume, a photo of them in 1st arabesque as well as a professional headshot, and they should be prepared to leave additional information if it is requested. Women are expected to wear pointe shoes.
“We have just completed one of our greatest and most dynamic seasons ever,” said Artistic Director Robert Hill, “we are in a well-positioned financially and now able to build our bench of talent. There is no better time to dance with Orlando Ballet.”
Choreographer-in-Residence Jorden Morris, whose production of “The Great Gatsby Ballet” will be performed in the upcoming season, shared his enthusiasm. “The success of any major ballet performance, especially one as vibrant as Gatsby, greatly relies on the dancers’ skills and spirit.
