Relay Dance Collective is excited to present Showcase -- an evening of new choreography, and a celebration of our fifth season.
Showcase highlights the diverse voices and creativity within our group by providing an outlet for select RDC dancers to create new works. Unlike Relay's more formal concerts at Velocity Dance Center, this September performance is about taking risks, collaboration, and experimentation.
"Showcase is a vital partner to our 'mainstage' show," said Gabrielle Gainor, RDC co-founder and Showcase participant. "Relay fulfills a niche in Seattle's dance community where artists not only get to perform, but receive opportunities to become more audacious dancers and creators."
Showcase choreographers include:
Presented in Dance Fremont's intimate studio theater, each of the two Showcase performances include a reception with either champagne or wine, and hors d'oeuvres.

Now announcing Relay Dance Collective's Season 5 audition:
Masterclass with Ella Mahler
2-4 p.m., Sunday, August 28
RDC is seeking male and female collective members members for its 5th season. Collective members should excel at both classical and contemporary styles; be available to rehearse on Sundays and week nights; and be open to both repertory work as well as a collaborative creative process. We're thrilled to have such an outstanding group of choreographers this year! They include current and/or former artists with Pat Graney, Spectrum Dance Theater, Au Collective, AJnC Dance, and Intrepidus Dance.
Master-class style audition will include technique and improvisation taught by Ella Mahler.
5TH SEASON CHOREOGRAPHERS:
THE FINE PRINT:
In order to create smoother scheduling this year, a dancer's skill/movement style (as well as past work with RDC if any) will carry the same weight as their availability in casting. We cannot consider dancers who are unable to attend ALL major tech/dress rehearsals in April.
We are not seeking freelance artists looking for project-based work. This is an audition for collective members who are excited to be part of a cohesive ensemble (no auditioning for specific pieces or choreographers). Please consider this before deciding to audition.
September, 2016 - April, 2017
Mature, self-possessed, and with a great attitude. Able to contribute, as well as able to listen and take direction. Interested in more than just performing; being an active part of the organization and artistic community. Passionate about helping to build RDC as a performing artist (and choreographer, warmup leader, instructor, community ambassador if those opportunities are wanted/available). Applicants must be able to rehearse in both North and South Seattle (Burien) and have reliable transportation.
