PCDC seeks to fulfill two Company Dancer contracts as well as additional Apprentice contracts. Both Company Dancer and Apprentice contracts will be from September 12, 2022 through December 31, 2022, with a strong possibility for rehire starting January 3, 2023 for the company’s 40th Anniversary Season and additional touring possibilities in 2023. Rehearsals will begin September 12th in preparation for winter performances at Peridance's KnJ Theater on December 9 - 18, 2022. Both Apprentices and Company Dancers rehearse approximately 10-20 hours/week. Company Dancers are paid $18/hour for rehearsals and receive a $50-100 stipend per performance depending on scale of the event. Apprentices are paid $25-50 for performances. Both Company Members and Apprentices have access to free space at Peridance when available as well as free daily ballet classes and other discounted classes. The Company is not a union company. Peridance seeks to create a welcoming and inclusive environment for all employees, and welcomes dancers of all backgrounds to audition for the Company.
