We offer several public workshops a year. At the end of choreography workshops, we give the participating ladies an opportunity to perfom on stage at Bogart's during a show. Whether you choose to perform or not, every lady walks out of our workshops with more confidence and new friends. We also offer private workshops for birthdays, bachelorette parties, and girls' night out!
We are SO SO busy, and expanding like crazy! As we prepare for new partnerships and touring over the next year and a half, we're looking to expand the troupe!
In order to be considered for audition, you'll need to fill out an application and submit a dance resume and headshots. We are only looking for folks between the ages of 22-35 (yes, we're accepting men as well!) with 5 or more current, consecutive years of classic dance experience (ballet, tap, jazz, contemporary, ballroom), with up-to-date training (No, that tap class you took for 3 months when you were 5 does NOT count, nor can you claim you have 20 years of tap experience with it!), or 3 choreography workshops or the bootcamp. If we accept your application, we'll send you a contract that will lay out expectations that you'd have to sign before you audition. Then auditions will consist of learning 8 8- counts of choreography and performing it in small groups in front of a judging panel. You will be sent a video of the choreography 24 hours prior.
Still think you want to audition? Read this CAREFULLY.
You'll need to send a proper email (remember...you're applying for a job, not sending a text to your friend) stating so to: CinCityBurlesque@gmail.com. The subject line should read POTENTIAL AUDITIONEE. You'll then want to request an application from us, fill it out, and return it with a headshot and full body shot. If it meets with our requirements, we'll accept you for auditions at Arthur Murray Sunday September 13th at 12:00. IF after the audition we feel that you may be a good fit, you'll be an intern for 90 days. You will be required to be at rehearsal, learn choreography, and help kitten and stagehand at any shows during that time. You will NOT be dancing in any shows, be given a stage name, be allowed to use CCB social media, or be in any CCB photos until after the 90 days are up. If after the 90 day "probationary" period we still believe you are a good fit you'll become a full troupe member.
We look forward to hearing from you!
