Audition for us! DMW holds auditions for all company members, including returning members, prior to the start of every Spring and Fall season. We’re always looking for more talent to join our company.

Choreographer & Dancer Auditions

Each season, we look for individuals to audition to be a part of our DMW Choreographers. These individuals, if chosen, will be responsible for creating and teaching a piece for the season end performance in the dance style of their choice. They will be responsible for running their rehearsal classes on their own each week, editing music, selecting class costumes and providing staging and lighting input. Each season, individuals looking to take classes and perform will audition to take part in the company. Individuals will only audition for the style(s) of dance that they wish to participate in.
