“Reawakenings” Call for Dancers, April 2024

Call for Dancers
April 2024

Moving West Dance Theatre, based at the Performing Arts Center of MetroWest in Framingham, is looking for dancers to participate in a multi media dance production in early November 2024. The production entitled “Reawakenings” will be a collaboration involving two choreographers, live music, film and dancers in both new and recreated original dance works. This project is supported by grants from the Massachusetts Cultural Council, the Framingham Cultural Council, and the Mabel Burchard Fischer Foundation.

Dancers need to commit to weekly rehearsals in Framingham late summer and fall (determined by availability poll) with performance dates of Nov. 8 & 9, 2024. Dancers should have a history of dance training and performance and be comfortable with group improvisational explorations of movement. The production will include professional musicians in piano, violin, guitar, and more. All performance artists will receive stipends for their collaborative commitment.

Dancers of all ages and experience are welcome in this production. Interested participants should contact Lynne Johnson Grynkewicz, Artistic Director, by phone or email by May 30, 2024. Questions can be addressed through direct contact.
