BROOKLYN, NY - Dancewave is proud to announce our 2013-2014 Company auditions. The Dancewave Company experience is an immersive, pre-professional modern training program for young dancers. Starting with Young Movers Ensemble for 10-13 year olds through Dance Company I (high school junior and seniors), our young dancers gain the opportunity to grow through an increasingly challenging program that incorporates modern and ballet technique classes, rehearsals with renowned choreographers, and a wide variety of exciting performing opportunities. This training provides young artists in the making with artistically substantial learning experiences while guiding their needs for individual achievement and team work building in an atmosphere of respect and open

Our Dancewave Companies enjoy a rich array of opportunities to experience exemplary works of art beginning with the opportunity to learn landmark pieces of modern choreography under the mentorship of leading choreographers such as: Paul Taylor, Twyla Tharp, Bill T. Jones, Garth Fagan, Susan Marshall, Mark Morris, Donald Byrd, Trisha Brown, Doug Varone, Lar Lubovitch, Christal Brown, Donald McKayle, Meredith Monk, Jawole Willa Jo Zollar, Elisa Monte, Sara Pearson/Patrick Widrig, Carla Maxwell (Limon-based), David Dorfman, Ronald K. Brown, and Andrea Miller. Our companies have been invited to perform at venues such as Governor's Arts Awards, Jacob's Pillow Dance Festival, the Metropolitan Museum of Art, the New Museum, Bay Street Theatre, Joyce Theatre, PS 122, The Brooklyn Children's Museum, The Kitchen, DanceNOW Festival, City Park Foundation's Summerstage and on PBS.

As a member of a Dancewave Company, dancers have the opportunity to pursue focused study in a variety of dance classes. Companies are structured in order to build upon each other with increasing expectations and benefits as dancers progress. Company members are required to participate in certain required classes and electives in addition to weekly company rehearsals.  Members should expect to participate in 3 - 8 hours of class/rehearsal per week.

Dancewave believes every child who demonstrates a strong inclination to perform earns the opportunity to explore and develop their talent in our nurturing and challenging programs. Dancewave Scholarships provides financial assistance to students committed to improving their lives through dance. In 2012, Dancewave gave away over 2,000 in scholarships! Our scholarships make dance classes possible for many students!
