Epiphany is looking for a few serious, pre-professional dancers age 15-19 to join our team as a TrainingArtist. Although it is not a performing company, the TrainingArtist program offers trainees the experience of life within a professional company. Trainees will get to take classes alongside company members and will have the opportunity to learn performance repertoire. Trainees will also get the opportunity to shadow the artistic director in performance set-up and tech at the theater including setting lighting and sound cues, spiking the stage, and providing backstage assistance.
The program lasts for an entire year with bi-weekly classes on Saturdays from 1-5pm at Epiphany’s new studio space at The Mix (9125 Diceman Drive, Dallas).
Tuition is based on commitment level.
The TrainingArtist program is designed to work in conjunction with the trainee’s home studio. Rehearsals and performances with the trainee’s home studio will remain a priority, but trainees have a responsibility to communicate conflicts with the trainee director at the beginning of the season.
Trainee applicants must be technically proficient in ballet and modern on an advanced high school level.
Applicants must complete a formal dance audition and an interview with the trainee director to be considered eligible for admittance into the training artist program.
On performance days, the trainees are expected to report to the artistic director at the theater upon arrival and shadow/assist her in whatever tasks need to be completed.
