The New York Institute of Dance & Education and its affiliated Kaleidoscope Dance Threatre are holding workshops and a tryout in New York City over the next few days.
The events started Thursday and continue through Saturday for the dance company, founded in Auburn by Sean McLeod and now based in both Auburn and New York City.
The first workshop was scheduled to take place Thursday afternoon. A second session is scheduled from 6 to 8 p.m. Friday at Gibney Union Square, 890 Broadway, Fifth Floor, New York City. Cost is $50.
An free audition session for the dance company is scheduled from 5:30 to 7:30 p.m. Saturday, Sept. 10, at DANY, 305 W. 38 St., New York City. Dancers are asked to bring a hard copy of a head shot and resume.
NYIDE is touting the event as an opportunity for central New York and Finger Lakes region dancers.
"With a 25-year history, NYIDE and Kaleidoscope Dance Theatre have established themselves in New York City and can offer a direct NYC bridge of access for professionally aspiring dancers who can't live in NYC full time!" a press release said. "KDT also works in Central New York, so you could dance with a professional NYC company while living in Syracuse, Auburn, Geneva, or Rochester!"
