Dancer Audition Registration

Dancers with professional performance experience are invited to dance and experiment with the 2019 Sandbox Artists - Tanya Chianese, David Herrera, and Raisa Punkki. Selected dancers will be paid $15/hour for participation. 


The Sandbox Series is designed to support artistic exploration. In Dec 2018, 3 choreographers were chosen for 8 3-hour sessions over a period of one month purely for the purpose of creative exploration. This project is meant to support imagination and risk; it is not project based and is not intended to replace the traditional pre-production rehearsal process.

Each choreographer will choose up to 6 dancers (with whom they have not worked with before) in one large open audition. For participation in the project, choreographers will be paid $1000, and each dancer will be paid a weekly fee of $90/week. The 24 hours of rehearsal space is paid for by ODC. Choreographers must have 10 years of professional choreographic experience. Dancers must have professional performance experience.

Previous Sandbox choreographers have included Katie Faulkner, Amelia Rudolph, Kim Epifano, Jo Kreiter, Scott Wells, Erika Chong Chuch, Nicole Klaymoon, Gerald Casel, Maurya Kerr, Amy Seiwert, and more!

 Sandbox is funded by the Mellon Foundation
