The Dancing Wheels Company, America’s first, professional, physically integrated dance company, is currently seeking male and female dancers for employment in the 2013 – 2014 season. Dancing Wheels is a national touring company that works with highly acclaimed choreographers each year. Most recent works include full-length pieces from Donald McKayle, Dianne McIntyre, Nai-Ni Chen, Christopher Fleming, Michael Uthoff, Peter Kalivis, and David Rousseve.
Dance positions offer full 52-week contracts, competitive rates of compensation, and an opportunity to travel throughout the country and abroad (with all expenses paid). Upcoming tours include: Moscow, Russia; Vancouver, B.C., and Washington, D.C. The company is auditioning male and female stand-up and sit-down (wheelchair*) dancers. Stand-up dancers must have a strong background in both ballet and classical modern dance techniques. Sit-down dancers with dance experience are preferred but we accept apprentice level for those with no prior dance experience, but demonstrate athleticism, wheelchair speed and agility.
All applicants should be comfortable with speaking in front of large audiences. Dancing Wheels provides training in these areas.
