Auditions for Toy Guns Dance Theatre’s local performing company Spring/Summer dance season. Performers receive a stipend of $100 as well as free classes, high fives, and hugs.
The local company will be doing a series of public performances this spring culminating in an outdoor show at dusk June 13/14 and 20/21. As well we will be performing at the 2014 Edmonton Fringe Festival August 14-24th (we will be previewing the Fringe show early July and then going on break from July 14-August 9th while our touring company is performing in Winnipeg and Calgary.
*If you are only able to commit to one of the productions please contact us as we would love to see you at the audition and are more then willing to work around scheduling conflicts if they are brought to us before rehearsals commence.
We are happy to work with emerging artists with a strong dance background or with experienced performers that have a movement background. If you have questions about the style of dance we create here is a promo video for our summer season http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=NMGWzjEl4Lo or contact Artistic Director Jake Hastey: [email protected] to talk about your involvement and appropriateness for our work.
