The audition will consist of a company warmup and learning CoMo repertoire.

The Columbus Modern (CoMo) Dance Company's eighth season runs from March 2020–February 2021. CoMo's mission is to provide an opportunity for working professionals to pursue a professional dance career part-time. Dancers are encouraged to contribute to administrative work and will be provided with a small stipend for these areas. Hourly paid teaching opportunities are frequently available. A signed contract will be provided to outline expectations and any paid opportunities for the season. 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 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. Read about guest artists from our first seven seasons.

The Columbus Modern Dance Company currently rehearses Monday & Wednesday evenings at Dublin Dance Centre & Gymnastics from 8:30-10pm + full weekend guest residencies (8hrs+) every few months. The commitment for professional Company Dancers is an average of 4-6 hours of rehearsal per week, considering additional classes & performances. Our second company, CoMo II, rehearses Thursdays from 8:00-9:30pm. Additional rehearsals may be added near performance times.

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, University of Nevada Las Vegas, Case Western, University of Iowa and many more.

Apprentice positions are also available by audition to offer dancers continued training and performance opportunities. Summer internship opportunities are also available. High school students are invited to audition for our preprofessional opportunities.
