Oklahoma City, April 30, 2013 – Newly forming dance company, Dance Theatre OKC, will hold an audition Saturday, May 11 at 2:00 PM, at the Bruce Owen Theatre at Oklahoma City Community College, located at 7777 S. May Ave.

Male and female dancers with training in ballet, modern dance and/or jazz are urged to attend.  Company members and apprentices will be selected.  Apprentices will work with the company and have performance opportunities as they progress.  Dancers must be no younger than fourteen years of age.  No certain type or size of dancer is required, according to artistic director Elizabeth Hobi.  “I am looking for individuals, performers with heart, who project and connect with the audience.”

For the audition, dancers should bring either ballet or jazz shoes, or dance paws.   Registration will begin at 2:00 PM, and will be followed by a warm-up and audition in the format of a dance class.  Dancers will not be allowed into the theatre until 2:00 PM.  The audition is closed to the public and only audition participants will be allowed entrance.

Company members and apprentices will have class and rehearsal Mondays and Wednesdays 6:30-8:00 or 8:30 PM, and beginning in the fall, rehearsal will also be held on Saturdays 3:00-5:00 PM, as needed.
