Upcoming Audition Opportunities


Open Stage at The J - Call for Submissions 

The goal of “Open Stage at the J” is to bring our dance community together to present some of the best work available in a supportive environment and to expose new audiences to the talent we have right here in Kansas City.

On behalf of the Jewish Community Center of Greater Kansas City, it is with great pleasure we announce the fourth annual “Open Stage at the J”, a choreography festival for Kansas City contemporary dancers and dance companies. In the past, our showcase has been an "invitation only" for companies, but this season, we are opening up a few spots for new choreographers. We would love to hear your ideas!

Submissions Due: November 15, 2019

Please contact Maggie Osgood Nicholls with questions.
