Don’t miss out! If you are interested in joining the DC Cowboys on their Farewell Tour in 2012, selections will be made through a group audition process on November 1, 2011. Auditions are held in a very comfortable setting at our rehearsal location and are typically 1.5 hours long. Jazz dance training is the best preparation for the audition. Those auditioning are taught small sections or dance combinations from existing choreography and are then asked to perform them in small groups. You’ll never be asked to audition alone. Three to four current DC Cowboy choreographers and performers will evaluate your performance in the following areas:
- Movement ability (dancing skills)
- Overall appearance
While not a prerequisite, many of the DC Cowboys have previous performance, dance training, and/or musical theater experience.
If you are interested in auditioning and would like all the details including the audition location or you have additional questions about the audition process, please fill out the form to the right.
Next Annual Audition:
November 1, 2011 from 7PM to 8:30PM
The DC Cowboys is a volunteer organization that relies on the dedication and talents of its members to operate in the manner of a professional arts organization. We are looking for individuals who are responsible, able to attend rehearsals, and willing to make a commitment of more than one year to the organization. The DC Cowboys usually rehearse for two hours once a week and twice a week when a major performance is imminent. Though everyone is not required to be at all rehearsals, attendance is required at designated mandatory rehearsals in order to be considered for a performance.
The DC Cowboys perform on an average of twice a month at benefits & fundraisers, dance parties, gay rodeos (IGRA), hoedowns, circuit parties, gay-pride events, and country-western dance bars across the U.S. and Canada as well as in the local Washington, DC and Baltimore area.
