You cannot have within your possession or do any cannabis products while on the road with your dance troupe, PERIOD!!!! NO EXCEPTIONS! Different states and municipalities have different laws and we cannot keep up with them as we pass through States.

Because the troop will be inspiring people of all walks of life, we are seeking dance troupe members of varying body types (slender and curvy), but you must be able to perform in a fast-paced high-energy environment with like-minded individuals. Additionally, we invite individuals with various physical disabilities such as those in wheelchairs, as well as amputees, etc. However, you must be able to perform with the whole dance troupe within the confines of your disability. We have witnessed people in wheelchairs and multiple amputees perform amazing dance moves and acrobatic feats many fully able-bodied people would find challenging or outright impossible. These are the kinds of inspirational individuals we are looking for!
If you or someone you know might be interested please contact us. We will require a 5 minute or longer audition video featuring you alone or with your able-bodied or disabled dance partner, performing your most impressive dance, or acrobatic feats. Selection will commence immediately after we receive video entries. Just keep in mind that this is your audition video. If your partner wishes to join the dance troupe, they must submit their own Individual audition video and supporting information themselves.

Simply provide us with your full name including middle name, current mailing address even if it is a shelter, and your performance video).
While it may seem an intrusion, for legal and insurance reasons we need to know your covid-19 status (whether you currently or have had it). While you would not be abe to go on the road with your dance troupe while still sick with covid (and we will be doing random temperature checks etc), you may still join the dance troupe insecure your spot. Placements are limited so don't wait!
We can't wait to hear from you and see your performances!
