2023/2024 Apprentice Program, September 2023–May 2024
Collide Theatrical’s Apprentice Program provides the skills needed to pursue formal positions within the Collide company and in the world of theater dance.

Selected apprentice dancers will take technique class with the company 3–5 days a week, have an opportunity to perform in a Collide show, and participate in an apprentice showcase at the end of the year.

The technical classes include a variety of styles rooted in ballet and jazz, but also including tap, acting for dance, and hip hop. Apprentice dancers will also have an opportunity to participate in monthly master classes with Broadway touring dance captains and industry professionals.

This is a tuition-based program.
Scholarships are available for underrepresented artists.
Enrollment is competitive and audition-based.

We are now accepting video submissions
In your video, please include around 3 minutes of ballet center work including adagio, pirouettes, and grand allegro, and 3-4 minutes of jazz highlighting technique and acting abilities. Please also submit a head shot and resume, if you have one.

Apply to be Ballet Co.Laboratory’s 2024 Emerging Choreographer!

Ballet Co.Laboratory believes in the development of the whole dancer and works to invest in artists’ professional growth. Each season, through our Laboratory II: Emerging Choreographer Program, one choreographer is hired through this program to create a new, full-length, staged ballet production which is performed by the upper-level students at The School of Ballet Co.Laboratory, ages 11-20.

Choreographers applying to this program are encouraged to think critically about how ballet can continue to evolve in becoming more inclusive and forward-thinking. Rather than create a piece that is simply based on movement, artists are asked to create a production with a storyline that sparks the imagination and challenges the audiences’ perception of what ballet is. Choreographers are encouraged to expand upon the classic narrative by rethinking the characters, adding characters, or even reimagining the characters’ paths. 

All applicants must live in Minnesota, have had formal ballet training, and consider themselves to be an emerging choreographer.

Deadline is tomorrow, June 1!

Off-Leash Area announces an artist call for proposals for the second Off-Kilter Cabaret “Inside Outside Inside-Out”.

Off-Leash Area’s Off-Kilter community program highlights and supports artists with disabilities in creating original performance work. The second Off-Kilter Cabaret is an evening-length cabaret-style production comprised of 5 to 7 acts in any performing art form curated by the Off-Kilter Leadership Team – leaders in the disability community, two-thirds of whom are themselves persons with disabilities.

Performances will be held November 17-19 at the TEK Box at the Cowles Center for Performing Arts in downtown Minneapolis, a fully accessible black box theater with a floor-level stage. The event will include accessibility accommodations including ASL interpreting, captioning, and audio description.

The CFP opens June 1, and artists with disabilities are asked to submit proposals by the deadline of July 14 of a 5-10-minute original performance on the theme of “Inside Outside Inside-Out”. Off-Leash Area co-artistic director Jennifer Ilse says, “We want to prompt artists to propose risky, rebellious, and thought-provoking performances, informed by their own experience of being included or excluded, feeling within or outside of oneself, or even just discombobulated.”

The Off-Kilter Advisory Team includes writer and storyteller Amy Salloway, arts accessibility consultant Jon Skaalen, national touring musician Gabriel Rodreick, and Sam Jasmine, host of the Disability and Progress program on KFAI. Off-Leash Area is excited to be partnering again with Young Dance, whose mission is, “transforming lives through movement.”
