Auditions for the 2019-2020 season will be held on Saturday, September 7th, from 2:00-4:00 at the Pamela Trokanski Dance Workshop for all three companies: Pamela Trokanski Dance Theatre, PTDT Apprentice Company, and The Third Stage.  For more information and frequently asked questions, please read our Auditions Posts.

More Details:

Each of the three companies bring their own unique energy to dance in performance. Find out more about the different requirements for each company and what kind of commitment a PTDT dancer makes.

PTDT and Apprentice Company dancers should arrive 10 minutes before audition dressed to dance, in black leotard, black leggings or tights, and bare feet. (Dancers may bring footwear such as foot undies in case they need them.)

Older Third Stage dancers may wear dancewear, yoga pants, or other comfortable clothing.

All dancers may be asked to prepare a short movement phrase that they feel demonstrates their skill sets.

About the Companies:

Importantly, each of the three companies has its own unique focus on dancers/movers at different points in their lives and each require somewhat different skills sets.

The Pamela Trokanski Dance Theatre is a post-modern/contemporary dance company comprised of highly trained, athletic dancers, most of whom balance their work in dance with outside careers in non-dance related fields.

The PTDT Apprentice Company is for younger, serious minded dancers, with two to three years of training in contemporary / ballet, who would like to work with the PTDT while exploring a pre-professional experience in dance.

The Third Stage is a multigenerational, contemporary company, with dancers ranging in age from 8 to 80+ and was created in 1994, based on Trokanski’s belief that Dance is not the sole property of a technically trained elite, but a form of expression, communication, and creative endeavor that belongs to all people of all ages.” While this company’s work does include technical training, the focus is on the use of the “non-traditional” dancer in concert dance and the use of every day movement vocabulary and improvisation to tell stories.
