CALLING ALL VINTAGE-LOVING DANCING GALS:

On Monday evening January 14th, the Old City Sweethearts host OPEN AUDITIONS for those interested in joining Philadelphia's premier vintage chorus girl company. Established in 2014, the Old City Sweethearts are dedicated to reviving the art of the chorus girl through original choreographies and tribute pieces, and seek to share the joy of vintage dance and vaudeville with contemporary arts audiences through the development of original pieces and media that reflect the rich cultural heritage of jazz and related art forms.

The Sweethearts value diversity in all its forms, and we encourage women of all races, ethnicities, shapes, and sizes to audition!

Company members attend regular rehearsals, learn choreography, perform at events around the Philadelphia area with joy and finesse, and enjoy the sisterhood and friendship that comes from being part of such a talented team.

AUDITION FORM
Those interested in auditioning are required to complete the following form no later than midnight, Friday January 11th.

The audition form can be found here: https://goo.gl/forms/UpoDbQO3B59eHcD72

WHAT WE ARE LOOKING FOR
— Dance ability and coordination
— Capacity to learn choreography quickly and accurately
— Performance capacity and physical aptitude
— Positive attitude
— Ability and interest to work in a group setting
— Dedicated availability to rehearsals and performance

WHAT'S INVOLVED IN BEING A SWEETHEART?
The Sweethearts rehearse three Mondays a month (usually 1st, 2nd, and 4th) from 7-9 PM in the Fishtown neighborhood of Philadelphia. Troupe members are required to attend 24 rehearsals a year, and pay dues of $8/month. No Sweetheart will be turned away for financial difficulties.
We average 1-2 performance opportunities a month, usually paid. In addition to participating in rehearsals and performances, we are looking for Sweethearts who are willing to contribute in other ways to keep the troupe successful — choreography, costumes and props, business development, social media, etc.

AUDITION SCHEDULE:
Monday’s audition will run from 7PM-9PM.
Auditioners may arrive as early as 6:30PM to warm up and check in.

WHAT TO BRING
Shoes: The Sweethearts perform in black heels. Please bring black character heels or similar to perform in.

Attire: Please wear clothing that you can move freely in, which will allow the evaluation panel to see your quality of movement. Bonus points if you show off your vintage style!

While costuming varies for any given performance piece, troupe members must be willing to perform in minimal coverage similar to what an Esther Williams-style swimsuit would offer. If you would not be comfortable performing in this kind of attire, please speak to the Company Director.

Please feel free to share this event if you know someone who would be a good addition to the Sweethearts. And watch this space for more details about auditions! We can't wait to meet you!
