First press release

My first press release is below. I sent it out this morning to various newspapers in an effort to get people to audition for an upcoming performance. Now I've just added to my job skills, and here's the proof:

Auditions are being held Jan. 30 for "Hansel & Gretel's House of Rock," an original show by Moving Arts Dance in Concord.

Created and directed by Terrin McGee Kelly, the production will be a chance to build your resume by performing with a professional company. The show will include a variety of phantasmal characters in a dark and magical forest. It will be set to a variety of music, including rock and roll, and soft metal, and will be a treat for all ages. A variety of parts are available for children, teens and adults, from non-dance roles through professional dance roles.

Participants should wear clothes that are easy to move in and show your body, bare feet and hair back with no bangs (no baggy clothes, please). Dancers should arrive warmed up and ready to learn choreography, and arrive on the floor ready to go 15 minutes before their start time. Start times vary by age and experience: 4 p.m. for children ages 5-8; 5 p.m. for children ages 9-12; 5 p.m. for age 13 to adult who are beginner dancers and character actors; and 6 p.m. for others age 13 to adult.

A $5 audition fee is required. If cast in the show, a participation fee will be required to cover costs related to rehearsals, costuming and performances. Fundraisers will be available to students to help cover their fee.

The Moving Arts Dance Theater is at 1281-C Franquette Ave., Concord. Go online to or call 925-825-8399 for more information. Moving Arts Dance is a 501(c)3 non-profit charitable arts organization. Donations are tax-deductible.
