The Joffrey Ballet, Cirque du Soleil, Hubbard Street II, Alvin Ailey: these are just a few of the companies where alumni of the renowned School at Jacob’s Pillow have gone on to dance professionally. This weekend, Jan. 19–20, the school launches an international tour of master class-auditions for its 2013 season, which includes contemporary, jazz/musical theater, commercial, and ballet programs. The tour begins in NYC with try-outs for the contemporary and jazz/musical theater intensives, then moves on to Chicago, Long Beach, Miami, Los Angeles, and Paris, with additional stops in NYC. Students can also audition via video (required for those interested in the ballet program). Here is the full audition schedule, and here are more details on how to apply. Merde!
