Inside ODCSummer Audition Workshop 20117/25-298:30am-6:30pm APPLICATIONS DUE JUNE 1Inside ODC serves as a preliminary audition to ODC/Dance. It is an excellent way to experience ODC's movement style and be introduced to the creative working process, which for over 40 years has been characterized by its intellectual scope and physical challenges. During this week you will work closely with the ODC dancers and artistic directors, learn technique, read and discuss articles on dance and art, perform repertory and build choreographic studies with the ODC dancers. On Thursday evening, July 28, you are invited to join us for a dance performance at a local theater (tickets approximately $15). The final day of the workshop, Friday, July 29, will culminate in an informal performance by participants and ODC dancers of material learned and generated during the workshop. All dancers are welcome to invite friends and family to join us for this special performance opportunity at Studio B in the ODC Dance Commons. Reception will follow the performance in the lobby.Application process:1. Completed Video Audition Form2. Video excerpt on DVD depicting your technical and performance skills.
