We realize that there is expense involved, so resumes and photos will only be collected from dancers remaining on stage at the end of the audition.

Remember, this audition is open to a public audience as part of DanceWorks Chicago’s on-going effort to illuminate the work of art. Audience members may come and go throughout the day.

DanceWorks Chicago is committed to building a foundation for early career artists by providing a laboratory from which dancers and choreographers propel themselves and the art form to a new level of artistry through training, collaboration, mentorship, and performance. Thank you for joining us in this journey.

Pre-registration forms can be submitted using the web form below.  Pre-registration will close at 10am (Central time) on Friday, August 3.
