Dancers ages 10 to 18 years old are invited to audition for Infinity Dance Project, Inc., a pre-professional dance project directed by Tracy Navarro and Rebecca Wind for students that are serious about the art form.
Company auditions include a $25 fee per student. The pre-professional company auditions for dancers ages 12 and up will be from 10 a.m. to noon on Friday, Aug. 9 at the Center for the Arts at the University at Buffalo. This company will rehearse on Sundays from 6 to 9 p.m. beginning Aug. 25.
New this season is a junior company for dancers ages 10 and 11 years old. Auditions for this company will be from 10 to 11 a.m. on Friday, Aug. 23. The location for the audition is to be determined. The junior company will rehearse a maximum of two times per month starting Sept. 8 and will perform in the annual January show.
Through participating in Infinity, students interested in furthering their dance education will gain preparation skills and performance experience that will enhance their future career prospects and heighten their appreciation for the art form. Dancers will audition and be cast in concert dance pieces with rehearsals that will be modeled after professional settings. Infinity Dance Project is not a dance school; it is a performance outlet, which will allow serious performers to take part in a performing experience that simulates college and real world situations. This preparation will help guide them in their transition from the studio or academic situation into the higher education and professional world.
The year is divided into semesters. Each semester will culminate in a concert of works presented to the community as well as other artful performance opportunities and a relationship with the Zodiaque Dance Company, the resident company of the University at Buffalo’s Department of Theater and Dance. Infinity Dance Project members will also take part in lectures from educators, college dance majors and professionals in the field offering insight to the journey ahead. Infinity Dance Project will bring your training full circle and lead you confidently to the future.
The annual Infinity Dance Company performance will be on Jan. 19 in the Drama Theatre in the Center for the Arts at the University at Buffalo. Tickets are available at the box office at the Center for the Arts, by calling 645-ARTS or online at tickets.com.
