For the 2021/22 season, DJD is seeking male and female dancers who are passionate about jazz dance and the work of DJD for both our Company and Professional Training Program (PTP). Due to the unique times we are in, DJD will be conducting a multi-stage virtual & in-person audition process.
Every couple of seasons DJD presents a performance created by the professional dance company. This fall we chose to continue on that path, though we took the focus off the performance, and put it more on the creation. The dancers spent about seven weeks on their personal creative processes. They were asked to really focus on where they are on their jazz journeys, and without the pressure of an opening night deadline, create something, without the stress of a finishing a piece, without worrying about lighting or costumes, just to focus on movement.
On November 21st we filmed these unadorned works in progress, we hope you will enjoy these beautiful raw glimpses that these beautiful artists have made.
We are thrilled to be able to share this work with you for free, however if you would like to make a small donation in support of DJD we would truly appreciate it. CLICK HERE to donate.
