DANCESTREAMS 35th ANNIVERSARY SEASON 2020-2021
(due to Covid-19 restrictions we will not hold a traditional audition at this time)
We are optimistic that we will be able to return to Dancestreams in the fall, with precautions! All our choreography is commissioned to a range of established, mid-career and emerging professional contemporary Canadian choreographers. As well, master classes and workshops with guest artists are presented throughout the season. Our dancers have been fortunate to learn from Serge Bennathan, Peggy Baker, Julia Sasso, Marc Boivin and many many others. Dancestreams is a non-competitive performance based repertory company, committed to sharing the results of the creative process with a variety of communities throughout our region. We bring professional quality contemporary dance to areas that may not have regular access to modern dance performances. Our six hour Sunday rehearsals are traditionally held in the Qualicum area, but location is often rotated to accommodate the dancers selected for the Company.
We are looking for committed dancers who are team players with a strong work ethic
and a passion for dance. If you are interested in becoming a member of the
Company, please submit
1) a short letter of interest describing why you want to
be in Dancestreams and which aspects of the program appeal to you the most, as
2) a short video of you demonstrating your understanding of plie,
tendu, jump(s) and a short choreographed solo or improvisation.
