DanceWorks Chicago is dedicated to creating a safe space for artists and audiences, now more so than ever. In alignment with the extension of the State of Illinois’ Shelter in Place directive, Team DWC has pushed “pause” on our menu of offerings including the Open Company Audition.

DANCERS, keep your heads up, your resumes polished, and be ready to dance your values when a new date is announced! Your patience is appreciated.

In the meantime, let’s work together (#PhysicalDistanceSocialConnection) to be the best version of ourselves so we come out on the other side of all of this stronger and more connected.

DanceWorks Chicago is always moving. It’s our tag line and our hope.


DANCERS, ages 18-24 years, DanceWorks Chicago is excited to invite you to present yourself at our Open Company Audition for SEASON 14! Click HERE for an audition flyer.

Team DWC looks forward to welcoming you and getting to know your work on stage of the Dance Center of Columbia College, 1306 South Michigan Avenue. Directions and parking information can be found HERE.


11am, doors open

Noon, audition begins with ballet

2pm-ish, audition continues with DanceWorks Chicago repertoire taught by DWC dancers

4pm, audition concludes

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.

INSIDER TIP: Arriving on Friday? Check out DayLab, an opportunity to take class, learn rep, and connect with Team DWC!

Audition pre-registration is highly recommended and will be available soon!
