How do I register for Choreographer Auditions? Boston Bollywood is seeking choreographers and instructors for it's season five performance. Teaching experience is required. This is a paid opportunity. Our choreographer audition process has changed from prior seasons. All choreographers must register online.
Before filling the registration form, please read the following instructions carefully. Registrations will close at 11:59 PM February 14th and no walk-ins are allowed.
Choreographer auditions will consist of two rounds. In the first round, choreographers are expected to do the following:
Tape yourself doing the choreography that you’d like to audition in one take. Cell phone cameras are sufficient to take these videos.
Upload the video to YouTube as an unlisted video. Here’s a tutorial on how to upload a video and make it unlisted: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=XwkL9_ESjcU
The Artistic Director will evaluate the audition videos and those selected in the first round will be invited for in person auditions/interview for the second round on Feb 18th. Please indicate your availability on Feb 18th in the registration form. Please direct any questions to email@example.com .
Notes: Your chances of advancing to the next round will increase if you do the following:
Teach the choreography to another dancer and have them dance in the video with you.
Where and when are choreographer auditions going to be conducted? Second round of Season Five Choreographer auditions will be held at Green Street Studios, Cambridge, on Feb 18.
What if I can't make choreographer auditions? Please complete the registration form and include a minute long video of the choreography you wish to audition. Please note that a video submission is harder to judge and in person audition will help us understanding the vision of your piece better.
What is the deadline to submit an idea? Feb 14, 2018.
What styles of music/dance are you looking for? At Boston Bollywood, we strive to experiment with Indian/South Asian and international dance styles. It is, however, mandatory to use music from the South Asian Music industry or by a South Asian artist. Paired with a Costume Designer and an Artistic Director, the Choreographer will be on a dream team. Together, they will marry the vision of the choreography to the essence of Bollywood. Please go through the following document which has the names of all the songs used in the past seasons. Please refrain from using them in your audition pieces.
Who is eligible to audition? Choreographers (18+) of all levels who are passionate about Bollywood!
What if I have never choreographed to a Bollywood song or do not know Indian film music? No problem! If you are looking for inspiration, email firstname.lastname@example.org stating your dance background and a few videos of your work and we will take it from there.
How long should the final piece be? The maximum length of the piece is 3 minutes and the minimum length is 2.5 minutes. Director's approval is required for shorter or longer pieces.
What is the audition format? In the second round, choreographers will be asked to perform one minute of their choreography. They may be required to teach a few 8-counts to the director. They should also prepare to answer questions about the following:
Vision of the piece
Level of the piece (Beginner, Intermediate, Advanced)
