Eight to Eighty - The Architecture of Age

Looking for local community dancers for our major performance season in August within the Darwin Festival. We are looking for dancers of all ages and from different cultural backgrounds and styles

We aim to create five performance groups focusing on age, each with about five to seven dancers. The age brackets are; 8 – 12 (primary school aged), 13 – 20 (Adolescence), 21 – 35 (Young Adults), 36 – 59 (Middle Adults), 60 - 80+(Retirees)

We are also looking for two small groups of dancers that dance in a particular style, that cross age and generation, for example a sixteen year old, a forty year old and a sixty four year old who all dance in a classical Indian style.

Auditions for aged focused groups - Saturday April 21st at Tracks Studio, Frog Hollow Centre for the Arts, 56 McMinn St

9.30am - 11.00am (for ages between 60 - 80+)
11.30am – 12.30pm (age 8 - 12)
1.00pm – 2.30pm (age 13 - 20)
3.00pm – 4.30pm (age 21 - 35)
5.00pm – 6.30pm (age 36 - 59)

For the audition we ask that you prepare a short movement study (about 1 minute) or dance that is about yourself. It should show us how you like to move. We will also be doing some activities to see how people look and work in a group scene, and to understand the themes of the performance project.

To register for the audition phone or email Tracks and let us know your age and which audition time you wish to attend by Wednesday 18th April. Email Tracks:  or Phone: 8941 1410

If you are interest in being one of the two cross generational groups or have any enquiries at all, please contact us as above. Ask to talk to David or Tim, or leave a message
