July 11 Auditions NYC
July 7th Submission Deadline
Growing, professional dance organization seeks strong, versatile male and female dancers for its 2014-2015 Dance Company and Performance Troupe. High-profile Summer and Fall performances already lined up and growing. The organization has performed at major awards shows and festivals, music videos, sports arenas and auditions for television networks.
We specialize in fusing jazz, funk and hip-hop dance styles with the urban flavor of today’s Bollywood. We encourage dancers of ALL ethnicities, as long as you have a genuine interest in learning about and representing the new face of Bollywood, which has many Eastern AND Western influences.

This is NOT for you if: you are seeking short-term “gigs” and/or “pay” only. Most of our performances are NOT paid, but are very high-profile and offer you value/benefits in many other ways
Due to our unique style, ALL Company and Troupe members (and potential instructors, which we often source from our Company and Troupe) are required to go through a formal intensive training program and probationary period, regardless of previous dance background.
