Dakshina/Daniel Phoenix Singh Dance Company is currently recruiting strong male (2) and female (2) dancers with a solid background in modern dance and/or ballet and release technique for a summer residency in 2014 followed by an 18 month contract that begins February 15, 2015.
Dancers must be able to live in Washington D.C. for four weeks from June 15 to July 20 for the Sokolow residency - a restaging of Anna Sokolow's iconic modern dance works, staged by Lory May, former principal dancer and currently the director of the Sokolow Dance Foundation. This is a rare chance to learn the gems of modern dance repertoire including Frida, Magritte Magritte and September Sonnet. Don't miss this unique opportunity to dance in Sokolow's powerful dances.
Following the Sokolow Residency, a few dancers will be offered an 18-month contract that will begin February 2015. The Company performs a variety of works from Sokolow to dances influenced by the Indian form Bharata Natyam. All performances and travel expenses are paid, and dancers receive a rehearsal stipend. The Company has several local, national, and international performance opportunities in the 2015-2016 along with a strong outreach program in area schools and community centers.
