Rehearsals will begin shortly after casting is complete and will initially be unpaid until such time as bookings begin. Rehearsal times and locations TBD; expect twice a week until all choreography is learned; then twice a month for maintenance. The times and locations will depend on where most everyone lives and their availability. Locations may rotate and may include both in-person and online meetings, and/or a hybrid of both. Great consideration will be taken to conduct the rehearsals as conveniently as possible for everyone involved. Attending Oriental Dance class at least once a week is required; class will be provided to dancers at no cost either through studio classes in person, or through live or prerecorded online classes (an excellent opportunity to add another dance technique to your repertoire!).
The inauguration of this professional performance group will launch hotel/casino bookings, as well as corporate and private gig opportunities. Only dependable, passionate dancers need audition!
Requirements if cast: •Must attend rehearsals. •Must be available for major shows (dates given in advance). •May need to contribute $20-$60.00 per choreography for costuming expenses. •Must be available for promotional video and photo shoot.
