Gibney Company Audition

2023/2024 Season

Gibney Company seeks experienced dancers with strong technical, artistic, and creative abilities for full-time contracts for its 2023/2024 season.

Gibney supports its dancers, called Artistic Associates, with 52-week contracts, health insurance, and paid vacations. Artistic Associates embrace a broad spectrum of activities — in the studio, on stage, within the organization, and throughout the community.

Led by Artistic Director Gina Gibney and Director Gilbert T Small II, Gibney Company is the resident company of Gibney, a dance and social justice organization founded by Gina Gibney in 1991.

Gibney Company members are full-time Artistic Associates who contribute not only as outstanding performing artists but also as activists and cultural entrepreneurs who create and develop Moving Toward Justice Fellowship projects that serve the community. Artistically, the Company presents a broad range of aesthetics and techniques through commissioned works by both internationally renowned and emerging choreographers. Additionally, Artistic Associates have the opportunity to develop programming that supports the dance field, and to work on their own creative projects.

Previously known as the 6-member Gibney Dance Company, the Company was reimagined and expanded in 2020 as part of an ongoing visionary transformation supported by Andrew A. Davis. Today, Gibney Company consists of 13 Artistic Associates and recently announced their First National Tour to nine cities across the U.S.
