The Columbus Modern (CoMo) Dance Company's ninth season runs from March 2021–February 2022. CoMo's mission is to provide an opportunity for working professionals to pursue a professional dance career part-time. Dancers are provided with a small performance stipends. Hourly paid teaching opportunities may be available. A signed contract will be provided to outline expectations and any paid opportunities for the season. 

Usually, most dancers begin in our second company to learn the repertoire and see if CoMo is a good fit. The second company is unpaid. CoMo's second company is currently on hold, and all dancers are in the main company.

CoMo Dance Company produces an average of three full-length productions annually and performs at many other community events. Dancers are provided with company technique classes, admission to CoMo's weekly adult modern dance class, opportunities to choreograph, and participation in guest artist residencies. CoMo works with regional and national guest artists to commission works on the Company.

The Columbus Modern Dance Company currently rehearses Monday & Tuesday evenings in person at Dublin Dance Centre & Gymnastics from 8:30-10pm. There are additional optional weekly opportunities for a virtual class/rehearsal and an in-person all levels adult modern class. Full weekend guest residencies (10hrs+) are offered several times a season. Usually, the commitment for professional Company Dancers is an average of 4-6 hours of rehearsal per week, considering additional classes & performances.
