Extensions Dance Company holding auditions Saturday
Extensions and Extensions II, the University’s professional dance companies, will hold auditions at 11 a.m. Saturday, Sept. 12 in the Rodgers Recreation Center, Room 039. Students who wish to audition should be prepared to learn ballet, modern/contemporary and jazz combinations and perform in small groups.
Directed by assistant professor Lindsay Guarino, Extensions is a full year commitment. The selected ensembles will have the opportunity to train at an advanced level of technique, work with nationally renowned guest choreographers and faculty, and perform on campus and throughout the New England region.
Salve Regina’s professional company, Extensions performs in two main-stage concerts at the Casino Theatre and at off-campus at events throughout the region. Extensions trains at an advanced level of technique while working with a variety of guest artists who visit campus and set choreography in intensive-style workshops.
Extensions II was developed as a junior company in the fall of 2014, providing performance opportunities to more dancers. This year, the company will perform in on-campus events such as the Banned Books Read-Out and the Mercy Center’s Festival of Lights in addition to working with two invited guest artists and a variety of student choreographers for the Student Choreography Showcase in April 2016.
Students who plan to audition should arrive early to warm up and register. For more information on Extensions, contact Guarino at (401) 341-2422 or firstname.lastname@example.org. Updates and casting will be posted to the Extensions Dance Company Facebook page.
