Bombshell Dance Project is seeking dancers ages 15-18
to join our second company for our June 22nd performance at Moody Performance Hall.
Dancers will perform a world premiere by artistic directors Taylor Rodman and Emily Bernet in our summer concert, LIKE A GIRL, on June 22nd at Moody Performance Hall. Rehearsals will take place June 4th - 22nd in Dallas, Texas.
A little bit about the show…
Like a Girl is a presentation of three world premieres by Bombshell Dance Project. Through their collaborative choreographic process, Emily Bernet and Taylor Rodman will produce an evening of explosive, full-bodied movement that captures the female experience, reimagines feminine ideals, and challenges social norms. Inspired by a fight choreography workshop lead by PrismCo Movement Theater, the headlining work, Like a Girl, will draw on the athleticism, power dynamics, and contrasts between strength and subtlety in the movements of a fight to explore the social constructs that surround the phrase, “fight like a girl.” With the rise of powerful female characters in popular culture, we are interested in revisiting what it means to fight, play, or act “like a girl.” In preparation for this piece, we are inviting members of our community into the process by sharing a questionnaire designed to delve into our perceptions of what it means to be a girl, how these perceptions have evolved from our grandmothers’ generation to young girls today, and how an individual’s understanding changes over time, leading to a work that delves deep into the multi-layer strength of a girl.
This program will also serve as the premiere of our project based second company (that could be you!!) in a world premiere by Emily Bernet and Taylor Rodman. Our process will focus on fostering collaborative spirit and professionalism through an intense rehearsal and performance experience for focused, talented young artists at no cost.
Dancers will receive a small stipend for their work. There is no application fee or tuition to participate.
To apply, please complete the application form, including a Youtube or Vimeo link to video footage of three minutes of solo improvisation to your favorite jam.
LIKE A GIRL is supported in part by The Dallas Arts District Foundation.
