Audition: The Gray 2019

The Gray is excited to announce upcoming auditions for their 2019 season! This is a free and open audition for professional dancers.

Date and Time
Wednesday, February 6, 2019
Registration begins at 11:30
Audition 12-2pm

Location
YAW Theater
6520 5th Ave S Seattle, WA 98108

This audition is being held to cast two new works choreographed by Beth Terwilleger in 2019. Beth is looking for a diverse group of dancers with strengths in technical dance ability, musicality, character development, and stage presence. This audition will be run similar to a rehearsal with Beth observing the level of fearlessness and creativity dancers bring to the table. An openness to discomfort and growth is a necessity when working in her pieces and she is looking for dancers who are ready to take on these challenges.

Please arrive warm and ready to dance!

**Please note!: There is a fantastic class taking place right before the audition at YAW from 10-11:30. It is a post-ballet technique class taught by Coriolis co-director and choreographer Christin Call and would be the perfect complementary warm up to the audition. http://www.yawtheater.com/class/
