2024 Summer Company Dancer Positions
Frog in Hand auditions are here!
We are looking for dancers to join our 2024 Summer Company.
The Summer Company is a diverse ensemble of artists who join together to train, create and perform across the GTA. Artists must be available from the end of May - through to the end of July 2024 for full-time work.
*The Summer Company is contingent on funding results (this initiative is funded by the Canada Summer Jobs program).
We are seeking:
Physically and emotionally imaginative folks between the age of 19-30
Highly skilled dancers with a professional practice, versed in dance techniques
Artists skilled at character development and storytelling
Folks who love collaborative process, and multidisciplinary work
Folks with artistic merit (technical ability, dynamic range), capacity for non-verbal storytelling, interest/ability to work within community settings. Beyond this, we take into account potential casting for specific repertoire, and we are seeking to create a strong team of individuals who we think will work well together intensively over the full summer season. We always cherish strong collaborators - dancers with ideas, listening skills, empathy, and a care-centred approach.
To be eligible, participants MUST:
Be under 30 at the start of the employment (May 2024);
Be a Canadian citizen, permanent resident, or person to whom refugee protection has been conferred under the Immigration and Refugee Protection Act for the duration of the employment
Have a valid SIN number, and be legally entitled to work in Canada.
Be willing and able to travel to work in Mississauga.
Summer Company dancers will be paid Ontario’s minimum wage and will be employees of Frog in Hand. Work is anticipated to be 30-35 hours per week, in person, for an expected total of 9 weeks.
To submit an application, please fill out our Google Form (link above).
Submissions are due Monday, March 4 at 11:59pm EST.
We encourage applicants to self-identify if they are part of an equity deserving group.
Frog in Hand prioritizes Mississauga-based artists, or folks with roots and practices based here.
Frog in Hand is committed to workplace health and safety. All workers have the right to: know about work conditions, refuse unsafe work, and participate in health and safety discussions.
Vaccination is highly recommended but is not required to work with Frog in Hand because we are considered to be in a "post pandemic" environment. Our policies around protecting workers still remain: masking, testing, and staying at home if sick - but we don't need vaccination as a requirement to be an employee at this time. When working with immunocompromised people, there may be a mandatory masking policy if decided by Frog in Hand staff. This policy can be revisited as health conditions evolve.
If we can make this application process more accessible to you, please email us at email@example.com
Auditions will be held in Mississauga on March 9th, 2024 with callbacks on March 10th, 2024.
