From Agents to Auditions... [13 Nov 2008|11:17pm]

 Hi there, 
I am new to Livejournal. I thought this looked like a great community to post in about my new DVD. I made this DVD to help dancers like you who have so MANY questions. Please visit me at www.keltiecolleendance.com to order or for more info! Here's is a little bit of info:

Professional dancers know that they have to work hard in order to make it. They spend hours learning choreography and perfecting routines that may only last a few minutes. They head to casting calls, sometimes with hundreds of other performers, only to face rejection. They are judged on technique, hair color, body type, and whether they have the right look. The life of a professional dancer is stressful but to most, it's also completely worth it, especially for the moment when they finally land their dream job. So how does one make it? In her new DVD, From Agents to Auditions, Keltie Colleen provides some wonderful advice for finding success in the dance world.

From Agents to Auditions is a great DVD, loaded with lots of useful information for people who are looking to break into the entertainment industry. From quick tips about what to bring to an audition to creating an eye-catching resume; and dealing with rejection, the film gives performers an idea of what they can expect from an audition and the steps they should take to secure the jobs they want. There are also a number of interesting interviews with a variety people including choreographers, dancers, talent agents and an accomplished music video director. They discuss their expectations for the talent they hire and provide honest answers to questions that every performer wants to know (What do you look for in a dancer? Where can I find information about casting calls? How do I find representation?). These interviews include Anastasia Miller (Director of Choreography/Commercial/Dance, Clear Talent Group and Alan Ferguson, Acclaimed Music Video Director) as well as many more!

dear colleagues [26 Mar 2007|02:25pm]
my name is Catherine.
I work in Moscow State theatre "New ballet".
Last year we got the premier of plastic ballet to
Beethoven’s Ninth Symphony.
We’ve shown it on different stages in Russia and now
We’d like to present it abroad.
There is a lot of information on net about dance and ballet festival,
But some of them don’t exist any more, some have outdated contacts.
Do you know any real festivals which are open to invite
Contemporary ballet troupe?
Or may be stage or theatre which can help with tour organization?

also we'd like to propose a joint project with foreign specialist,
for example we'll invite a choreographer and he (or she) will stage
any ballet he want in our theatre with our troupe.
Or there can be other ways of cooperation .
for further information write me:

Thank you in advance.

Help with dance resume? [14 Aug 2006|11:26am]

Hi! I'm Ben, new to the community. I have a question for you all. I have an audition coming up with Do Jump! Extremely Physical Theater. I have never done a serious dance audition before. My question is about my resume. I don't know how to make a dance resume! What information needs to be on there that is different from a standard resume, and what info does not need to be there? Are there any resources online or elsewhere that would help or provide info? Do I need a head-shot or other photo? If I don't have a lot of experience, what is the best way to present it on my resume? Any suggestions would be GREATLY appreciated. Thank you!

Hello everybody!

My name is Manuela and I've just joined this group :)
I confess I'm quite sorry to start my community life with a cross post :S but I really need your help!
The reason is that besides loving music and dance, besides practising ballet, I'm also a student, and at the moment I'm writing my master thesis about dance ;)

I need the opinion of dance professionals (students, teachers, dancers, choreographers, etc.) to write a specific chapter of my thesis, but I haven't collected many opinions so far O_o
So, I would really appreciate it, if you could take a look at this

1. How would you describe today’s contemporary dance? What are its main characteristics?

2. What are the specific aspects of the dance project that you (or your company/school) are pursuing?

3. If you had to identify the main difficulties of today’s dancers and choreographers, which ones would you consider the most urgent ones? Are there specific problems regarding Spain?

4. What measures should be taken to face those problems?

5. In general in this profession -on a scale from 1=not much 2=a bit 3=quite a lot 4=very much- what is your opinion about the importance of the contact with and the opinion exchange with other choreographers and their work?

and reply to the questions! You'd give me a huge help with my thesis!!

I should focus on contemporary dance in Spain in particular, so in case there are some dancers of choreographers from Spain, it would be great. Yet, I would love to hear your opinion even if you come from other countries!

Thank you very much in advance! :)

Culture Shock [01 Aug 2004|10:30am]

Hey everyone! I just joined and was wondering if anyone else in the community was part of Culture Shock/Future Shock in their cities? Or if any of you have it in your cities? I'm not sure how widespread outside of the major cities it is in the States, we only have five different troupes in Canada, I'm part of the Ottawa Future Shock. Anyways, awesome community/site, as soon as I finish the choreo I'm doing to Even If, by Method Man, I'll post it on the Dance Connection site!

Foot Care [26 May 2004|07:02pm]

[ mood | happy ]

I've added two new foot care baskets to my website. I put them together with dancers in mind, but these are perfect for anyone who is on their feet or just wants to pamper themselves.

http://www.thebasketcaselady.com/html/ladies__gifts_16.html Foot Indulgence


http://www.thebasketcaselady.com/html/ladies__gifts_17.html Dancing Feet

I know when my daughter was dancing 4 or 5 days a week, she took very good care of her tootsies. Now that she's on her feet all day working, she still indulges them with special treatment.

[ mood | accomplished ]

I've had a few requests for cotton leg warmers and for thigh high leg warmers. I've put my nimble fingers to work: cotton leg warmers, thigh high chenille leg warmers and another pair of cotton leg warmers

As always, any comments or questions are welcome!

Leg Warmers! [03 May 2004|01:00pm]

[ mood | accomplished ]

My daughter has studied ballet for 25 years. I've made many leg warmers for her and her fellow dancers. It would be my pleasure to offer these to other dancers. I can normally complete a pair of leg warmers in less than two days time. Dependent upon the amount of orders I get, I ask that you allow 2-4 weeks.

Break a leg!
