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 post-COVID. 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 during the pandemic.

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 (post-COVID), opportunities to choreograph, and participation in guest artist residencies. CoMo works with regional and national guest artists to commission works on the Company. Read about guest artists from our first eight seasons.

The Columbus Modern Dance Company currently rehearses Mondays (virtually) & Tuesday evenings (in person - masks required, no contact) at Dublin Dance Centre & Gymnastics from 8:30-10pm. Full weekend guest residencies (8hrs+) several times a season will resume post-pandemic. Usually, the commitment for professional Company Dancers is an average of 4-6 hours of rehearsal per week, considering additional classes & performances. Currently, participation is only 2-3 hrs per week during the pandemic. 

CoMo Dancers come from around the United States. Our performers hold degrees in dance from universities such as Agnes Scott College, University of Notre Dame/Saint Mary’s College, The Ohio State University, Miami University of Ohio, Ohio University, Ohio Wesleyan, University of Nevada Las Vegas, Case Western, University of Iowa and many more.
