Bellevue College Dance Company (BCDC), under the guidance of the director and run by the students, is set up to be a stepping stone for dancers that come from private studios, that are looking to transition to either a university level program or to gain insight into what the dancer life is like outside of their studio walls. It is also a safe and encouraging space for dancers that would like to explore creating choreography on their own, with feedback from the director or other experienced dancers in the company.
BCDC has several opportunities throughout the year to perform, culminating in their season closing with the BC/DC Dance Ensemble Show the first weekend of May. It is a wonderful opportunity to work with a lighting designer and choose their costumes. Dancers also get a chance to dance in work by the director or choreographers from the greater Seattle area.
Rehearsal times vary, based on the choreographers’ needs. Most rehearsals will take place Tuesday and Thursday afternoons.
BCDC is currently looking for intermediate to advanced level dancers to choreograph and/or dance for the company. Dancers can be trained in any style or genre of dance. Dancers currently in the company have training in Ballet, Jazz, Contemporary, Tap, Hip-Hop, Salsa, Bollywood, Traditional Chinese, Vietnamese and Cambodian dance plus many more!
Dancers for the company are required to be Bellevue College students, faculty or staff and are encouraged to take dance classes at Bellevue College.
If you are interested in the Dance Program or would like more information, please contact the Director, Jenna Spinei.
