Cleveland Ingenuity Festival 2013

Greetings Readers!,

It has been quite some time since we’ve shared with you what the company has been up to. Busy none the less. We’d love to get you back up to speed on everything that’s happened but that will all come in a later post. Today we’d like to share that we have the privilege of performing at the 2013 Cleveland Ingenuity Festival! On Saturday the company will be performing an excerpt of “Walking on Clouds” in a warehouse with a twist! Our founding/artist director, Mary Verdi-Fletcher has collected footage from a documentary that shares the feats of people with and without disabilities coming together to capture the inaccessible buses. It promises to be an unforgettable and moving performance. If you’re visiting the Cleveland area this weekend, we recommend that you stop by the Cleveland Port at 1pm on Saturday to see the company perform!

DUMBO Auditions!

Happy New Year Everyone!

The company has returned to the studio to continue working on upcoming performances and the school is back in session getting ready for our production of Dumbo! In May, The Dancing Wheels Company and School will be bringing Dumbo to life on stage at the “St. Ignatius, Breen Center”.

This Saturday, January 26th from 2-3:30pm at the Dancing Wheels Studios we will be holding 
open call auditions for the student piece in Dumbo.  Students auditioning will take a small
modern class/warm up, learn a small section of choreography and then be asked to
present a small performance of their choice.  This can be either a small dance,
they can give a small speech, show a picture they have drawn, or sing.  We do
ask that these pieces be no longer than 30 seconds to a minute.  All students
will receive a part in the show, this is just an opportunity for them to
understand how an audition works.  They should wear dance attire with no loose
clothing. Also, have your hair pulled back and neat.

Auditions are taking place at our studios in Cleveland, Ohio at The Masonic Temple.

3615 Euclid ave. Cleveland, Ohio 44113

For more information/questions, email our school coordinator; Emma Parker at school@dancingwheels.org

Look forward to seeing you there!

When Dancing Wheels performed at West Virginia Northern Community College this past October, Bus 52 met us there to learn about what we do and why we do it. Here is the final product of that collaboration!
