Boston Bollywood is seeking disciplined adult dancers (18+) for its 2021 Summer performance. Experience in some form of dance is required. Due to the nature of auditions, prior registration is mandatory**. Registration link is posted below. All registered dancers will be taught 45-60 seconds of choreography in a virtual zoom audition. At the end of auditions, dancers will be expected to send a video of them performing the choreography via a YouTube link. To participate in Semi-classical pieces, you will be required to attend the first class of the respective pieces virtually and send audition videos directly to the choreographer.
** Dancers who participated in our Season Eight show need not re-audition. They must, however, fill the registration form to indicate interest in participating in the 2021 Summer show.
What to wear? Please wear comfortable workout clothes. Avoid denim jeans as they can restrict movement.
At auditions, we will judge dancers' ability to learn new choreography and their performance will be used to determine level placements.
Level Placements Level placement will be determined based on the following criteria:
* Precision (Timing, correctness of moves, crispness of lines and angles) * Energy while maintaining correct precision * Grace (Ability to replicate style)
Notes: For Bollywood/Contemporary auditions, dancers will be placed in one of 5 levels. For Semi-classical category dances, first class of the piece will be considered an audition. Dancers must send a video of them performing the choreography. Choreographers will choose dancers for their dances based on their performance. Contemporary/Lyrical dances will take Bollywood/Contemporary levels.
All level placements will be final.
All dancers new to Boston Bollywood MUST attend the info sessions. Details about tuition structure, piece signup, show day, and the dancer contract will be discussed in this session.
Any dancer who did not participate in season eight must audition to participate in 2021 Summer show. Dancers who participated in season eight who want to audition for a higher level placement may also participate. This does not guarantee a higher level placement.
If you are selected as a choreographer in 2021 Summer Show and you wish to participate in other dances (pieces) in 2021 Summer Show, you are required to participate in Dancer Auditions.
