Call for Dancers


Hawkinsdance is seeking up to 3 dancers for their upcoming 2019-2020 season. Company dancers will work closely with Shelly Hawkins and guest artists and perform at all concerts and events, though additional dancers may be sought for specific projects as needed. 


Hawkinsdance will be presenting a concert at the MSA Annex Festival Grounds in Spring 2020 (date TBD).  They will hold their second concert at the Scoundrel & Scamp Theater May 1st- 3rd, 2019.  Hawkinsdance is also working on a dance film project throughout the year, and will be performing at other events throughout the season. The company will be working with a guest artist in January, and may also be hosting a winter workshop. 

As the company grows, we intend to offer positions to working professional dancers interested in the Tucson lifestyle. We hope to be moving to weekday rehearsals in the Spring, and are therefore seeking dancers who have some weekday daytime availability. We are also interested in dancers who are strong choreographers that may be interested in creating new choreographic works, however choreographic skills are not a requirement. 


  • Hawkinsdance seeks professional dancers with strong modern, ballet and jazz dance technique, who can demonstrate contemporary partnering and shared weight concepts, and who have a clear artistic voice in improvisation. 

  • Dancers must be age18+

  • Dancers must fill out the online audition registration form if attending the audition

    • If attending the audition, dancers must bring a resume and headshot

    • If unable to attend the audition, dancers may fill out the open call submission form.


Rehearsals in the fall will be in Saturdays and Sundays from 4:00-9:00. Starting in January we hope to be able to hold some weekday daytime rehearsals but will still have studio space available to us on Saturdays and Sundays from 4:00-9:00. The rehearsal schedule is dependent upon casting. 


For more information please email Shelly Hawkins at, or send us a message on our 'contact' page.
