Peridance Contemporary Dance Company (PCDC) has been a powerhouse of energetic and evocative dance since its inception in 1983. The Company, known for Artistic Director Igal Perry’s timelessly elegant and brilliantly musical choreography, has an illustrious performance history at venues including the Joyce Theater, the Rose Theater at Lincoln Center, and internationally in Italy, Israel, South Korea and Bulgaria. PCDC is housed within Peridance Capezio Center in the Union Square area of New York City, with the Salvatore Capezio Theater as its resident performance venue.The dancers are all classically trained – they hail from Japan, Korea, USA, Spain, Italy, and Brazil. The Company’s annual NY Spring Season serves as a launch pad for over 30 annual performances, new works, and programs each year.
Dancers must have excellent ballet and contemporary technique, versatility, musicality and stage presence. Rehearsals are paid hourly and performances are paid per performance. The Company is not a Union Company. Full-year contracts begin Fall 2017. Apprenticeships and paid company positions are available.
