Inaside Company Audition

Thank you for your interest in Inaside Chicago Dance! Now in its 19th Season, Inaside is boldly pushing the boundaries of Jazz dance while upholding its tenets of Integrity, Passion, and Pride. Interested dancers should be skilled in the foundations of Jazz Dance (classic and contemporary); Modern dance and its use of spirals, deep contractions, and floor work; as well as classical ballet placement with the use of turnout and ankle articulation. Auditionees should be interested in growing consistently as well as uplifting the artform through positive connection with the community we serve.

There will be two portions to the audition process in order to keep safety at its highest priority.

Part 1 (Virtual): The virtual audition will include a warm up and the learning of a few phrases. A great space with strong Wi-Fi will be helpful. You will record the final combo you learned and have 5 minutes to email to Inaside for review. Two cameras will be needed to make this process seamless, as you will record yourself with one device while being prompted through the Zoom meeting.

After all information is reviewed, dancers moving to the next portion of audition will be notified via email and invited to audition in person to learn more repertory on Saturday, April 10th in Chicago. YOU MUST PARTICIPATE IN THE VIRTUAL AUDITION TO BE CONSIDERED FOR THE IN-PERSON PORTION.

Part 2 (In-person): A socially-distanced, masked audition to get to know the work ethic, performance quality, and general compatibility of auditionees. Auditionees will take a full ballet class and learn choreography to showcase quick-study and artistic skills. Note: if you are invited to this round and have come down with symptoms of COVID-19 or have been exposed, we will reschedule your in-person audition for a later date.

If a contract is offered, you will need to be in Chicago for a Company meeting on Thursday, July 29th. You will also need to be available to assist in our Summer Intensive August 2nd-7th from 9:30am-3:30pm daily. Inaside typically rehearses weekly between the hours of 9:30am-2:30pm. All times are subject to change.

Register here by March 17th.
