Audition for Company positions and Fall Rep Workshop
Printz Dance Project is seeking new company members for their upcoming repertory shows at the Joe Goode Annex, SF as well as for their 2020 performance season. These are PAID positions.
In addition, 10-12 dancers will be invited to enroll in Artistic Director, Stacey Printz's Invitational Fall Performance Workshop with the workshop piece performing alongside PDP in the November shows.
Must be available for Tech/Performances November 4th-10th. Most rehearsals are Wednesday evenings and Sundays (times TBD) in SF, with a few additional rehearsals added as needed (in SF, East Bay or Marin).
PDP is looking for dancers with a high level of skills in a mix of any of the following styles: contemporary, modern, jazz, hip-hop, plus a strong ability to partner with vibrant, expressive performance quality. Dedicated, hardworking, positive people are a must. We work hard/play hard and believe in people and process as core values. Must be down to dig-in, explore, laugh, and sweat. No divas please.
Dancers are encouraged to come if interested in a company position, only the performance workshop, or both.
Stacey Printz : Artistic Director/Choreographer of Printz Dance Project (PDP) with her company has performed in San Francisco for 19 years, and toured across the nation and internationally in Russia, Lithuania, Ireland, The Virgin Islands and Mexico. Printz was nominated for an Isadora Duncan Dance Award (Izzie) for her 2011 work Hover Space, with her most recent work GLASSlands premiering at Z Space Theatre last May, and was then presented at YBCA. Printz's choreography credits in theater/multi-genre, performing arts pieces include: As You Like It at Cal Shakes, Aaron Davidman's Wrestling Jerusalem, Sarah Shourd's The Box, Washington D.C.'s Woolly Mammoth Theater production of The Arsonists, and YBCA Director of Program and Pedagogy, Marc Bamuthi Joseph's internationally recognized works, Scourge, The Break/s, the Bessie nominated Red, Black & Green: a blues, and /peh-LO-tah/, which recently toured to Kennedy Center and BAM. In addition she has choreographed many regional musical theater productions (including West Side Story, A Chorus Line, Grease and more). Printz has taught her hybrid contemporary-jazz technique across the United States, including places such as New York (Broadway Dance, NYU, Peridance), Los Angeles, Memphis, Arizona, Colorado, Utah and Internationally (including Italy, Switzerland, Denmark, Austria, Ireland, Russia, Belgium and more). In the Bay Area, Printz teaches for A.C.T.'s MFA program, at Alonzo King LINES Dance Center where she has been on faculty for 17 years, and RoCo Dance MV. Printz graduated cum laude from UC Irvine with degrees in sociology and dance.
In describing her aesthetic, SF critics have said: Printz's movement vocabulary in itself is a fusion of styles: modern, hip hop and contemporary jazz. Hip hop and jazz are not easy genres to incorporate into rigorous artistic work, Printz is able to combine the three by focusing on the technical challenges of modern dance, the lyrical expression of jazz and the staccato attack of hip hop.
