The jomdance-company

Concerning the structure the jomdance-company follows the general structure of dance troupes:

  1. The Primaballerina
    She embodies the most important dance parts and is the strongest and best dancer of the troupe. All other dancers are on stage to make the Primaballerina look perfect.

  2. The First Soloists
    They fill the shows with soli, duetts or trios of various kinds and they enlarge the corps de ballet if neccessary.

  3. The Second Soloists
    They mostly dance trios or quartetts and support the other dancers such as First Soloists or the Primaballerina. Furthermore, they enlarge the corps de ballet if neccessary.

  4. The Corps de Ballet
    These dancers are the columns of a dance company because without corps de ballet a show quickly becomes a show of soloists acts.

Company Members

Each production has a new cast. A special show-casting leads to the needed dancers.

Criterias for a successful casting are:

  • The dancer is graduated jomdance-stage-dancer or currently in education and already at least in module 4.
  • A special choreography taken from a video and praticed at home is excercised during the casting correctly in movements, spatial directions, dynamic and expressions.
  • The sequences studied during the casting are correctly excercised during the casting correctly in movements, spatial directions, dynamic and expressions.
  • The prepared own dance sequences relate to the topic of the new production — a pre information about the topic is given in the casting call.
