ChoreoNova is a professional, award-winning contemporary dance company. Our works empower people. We perform regionally and produce innovative multidisciplinary works that make people think and feel. Check out our website to learn more about us.

We are looking for a female Latin ballroom/contemporary dancer for the lead role in “Ode to Chocolate Cake” for a performance early next fall 2019 in Pittsburgh, PA and/or Virginia. The piece comedically displays a woman chased, seduced, and haunted by a living slice of chocolate cake. She’s a dieting diabetic, so her resistance is important to her continuing health.

This incredible multimedia work combines dance with projection and animation. You may check out some of our work on this project to date at

We need a dancer who can make audiences live and breathe with them. If this is you, then we look forward to hearing from you.

Estimated 40-60 hours of rehearsal over a two-week period either in Pittsburgh, PA or in Virginia. Rehearsal and performance paid – amount to be negotiated. Exact location TBD.

Accommodations will be provided as well as a travel stipend.

All races and ethnicities welcome! Ideally, we need someone who looks like they could be on a diet.

You must have acting ability and skill in tango, paso doble, ballet, modern, and jazz and a flexible back.
U.S. dancers preferred.

You will receive professional film and images to build your reel.

Feel free to reach out with any questions!

Let’s talk and work out the details!
