A Los Angeles choreographer is currently seeking dancers, ages 18+, to participate and perform in an upcoming project.

Dancers will be asked to improvise and portray a character and/or feeling that may change throughout the dance.

The dance is being created for submission to a highly respected, long-standing and well attended dance festival that will be held one one day April 12-15, 2018. A video submission of the completed dance is required for submissions and will be professionally filmed. The festival offers immense exposure to entertainment professionals.
