Press Release & Calendar Listing For Immediate Release June 9, 2017 Dance & Dancers ART PRODUCTIONS will be holding GRAND AUDITION for professional dancers and graduate students from 17 – 25 years of age, on Tuesday 7th and Wednesday 8th of February 2017 at the Teatre-Auditori Sant Cugat in Barcelona, Spain. GRAND AUDITION aims to give professional dancers and graduate students the opportunity to plan their futures and to find their home company. It provides a unique opportunity for dancers to audition for multiple ballet companies at one time and in one place. D&D has invited Artistic Directors from world leading ballet companies to come together at GRAND AUDITION, where they will observe all the participants in a ballet class on the day one. Selected dancers will be asked to perform prepared variations on the second day. If a dancer meets the criteria and standards required by one of the artistic directors, he/she will be offered a place within that ballet company. David Makhateli, former principal dancer of the Royal Ballet and Director of D&D said: “With GRAND AUDITION, we are contributing to a better and more efficient way of recruitment for ballet companies. For young dancers, GRAND AUDITION offers an exceptional opportunity to demonstrate their talent in front of several Artistic Directors for a fraction of the cost of individual auditions.”We at Grand Audition very grateful for support of our partners: Teatro-Auditori Sant Cugat, Gaynor Minden, Dinamica Ballet, Dance Europe,Youth America Grand Prix (YAGP) www.grandaudition.net
