Eisenhower Dance is Seeking Mature Dancers with strong technique in Ballet and Modern and with Performance Experience

Eisenhower Dance is a contemporary repertory dance company based in the Detroit Metropolitan area. The Company boasts a diverse repertory by nationally-known choreographers. Repertory has included works by Edgar Zendejas, David Parsons, Lar Lubovitch, Ron de Jesus, Ahmad Simmons, Gina Patterson, Jamey Hampton, Harrison McEldowney, David Dorfman, Stephanie Pizzo and artistic director Laurie Eisenhower, among many others.

Mature dancers should have a strong background in ballet and modern technique, along with performance experience. Ability to relocate to the Detroit area and transportation is required for Company members. Dancers are contracted from Mid-August through June. The contract length is variable but is generally between 40-45 weeks with national and international touring. Apprentice positions will also be considered during the audition.

A dancer must be a U.S. citizen or have a valid work visa that allows him/her to work for at least two years to be considered.
