FAQs

How can I become a member of NUDANCO?

To become a member of NUDANCO you must audition. Auditions are held in September and January for inclusion in that semester’s performance. Prospective dancers may audition for as many pieces as they want, but upon being chosen, may only perform in 3 dances. Once you have auditioned and are accepted, we ask that you pay a $30 membership fee, due at the beginning of the semester. For more information on auditioning, please see our Audition Information page.

What kind of dance styles does NUDANCO work with?

NUDANCO works with a wide variety of inter-disciplinary dance styles, including (but not limited to): contemporary, modern, ballet, jazz, lyrical, hip-hop, African, tap and Irish step. Styles can and do differ from semester to semester, depending on the preferences of our chosen choreographers.

When does NUDANCO perform?

Our annual showcases are held in early December and early to mid April. We also offer opportunities to collaborate with other student groups – the availability and date of these performances varies with each semester.

Where are rehearsals held?

Company rehearsals are primarily held in the dance studio, located on the second floor of the Curry Student Center – room 242. We also hold rehearsals in the Fenway Center, CSC ballroom, the Marino Center, or Squashbusters. For directions, please consult the map below.

Do you hold classes?

Because we are a performance based company, our main focus is rehearsals. In the event that Northeastern provides us with more than enough scheduled hours, NUDANCO hosts classes taught by our student choreographers. Classes are open to all (including non-company dancers) and free of charge. To see what/if classes are currently scheduled, please see our Events page.

What level of commitment is required to be a NUDANCO company member?

We ask that dancers attend all rehearsals, the mid-semester run-through, dress rehearsal and of course, our showcase. Rehearsals are typically 1 hour per piece on weeknights after 6 pm, or on weekend afternoons. Dancers are allowed to be in 3 pieces at most (4 if you’re a choreographer), so the max amount of rehearsals a week would be either 3 or 4. In addition to the usual scheduled rehearsals, choreographers may chose to hold extra rehearsals towards the end of the semester.

What about costumes?

Costumes are left to the discretion of the choreographer, and each dancer pays for his/her own costume. In an attempt to keep costs low, we ask that choreographers stay with a $30 limit.

Upcoming Events

Choreographer Auditions for NUDANCO’s Spring Showcase – “Raising the Barre”: Thursday, January 15th from 6-9 PM. Location: Curry Student Center Studio B. New and returning company members are encouraged to come audition their ORIGINAL choreography for our Spring 2015 performance. The theme of this show is “Raising the Barre”. If possible, we’d love to have your choreography somehow incorporate this theme. Feel free to explain the connection during choreographer auditions if you are able to encompass our theme into your piece. Even if you have never danced with or choreographed for our company in the past, we still encourage you to come audition. We are always looking for new and exciting dances to include in our showcases. Any style of dance is welcome, and even though our theme title includes the word “barre”, your choreography does not necessarily have to be ballet. Check out the Facebook event here for more info: https://www.facebook.com/events/1572890259612819/

Dancer Auditions for NUDANCO’s Spring Showcase – “Raising the Barre”: Saturday, January 24th from 9 AM-9 PM. Location: Fenway Center. Arrive between 9:00-9:30am to check in/sign in and received your audition number. Stretch/self warm up until 9:30am. At 9:30am all of this semester’s choreographers will show you a sample of what their piece will look like. This will give you an idea of what pieces you want to audition for throughout the day. Once the choreographers have finished their mini-showcase and the E-board has made any final announcements, it’s time to dance!

Each choreographer will be allotted 45mins to teach the auditioning dancers a combination (first in a large group and then breaking up into smaller groups). Dancers will perform this combo for the choreographer and then the remaining time is up to the choreographer’s discretion (they may ask the dancers to do combinations/specific turns or jumps or even improv across the floor, etc). After all the auditions for all of the pieces have been completed, NUDANCO will post on our website (nudanco.com) the results.  Facebook event: https://www.facebook.com/events/405359702922379/

Please view the “Audition Information” section of the “About” tab for more information about how both choreographer and dancer auditions work.

Feel free to email the e-board with any questions you may have (nudanco.eboard@gmail.com).
