Announcing 2019-2020 Season Auditions
Sasso & Company is looking for female identifying dancers with exemplary contemporary and ballet technique to join our company for the 2019-2020 season.
The company was formed in 2014 by Artistic Director Lacey Sasso as a premiere contemporary dance group comprised of strong, fierce, passionate women. The company’s work is bold, emotional, and captivating for the first time dance viewer as well as a seasoned dance lover.
Sasso & Company’s first season was fully backed by a Kickstarter campaign allowing for the full creative focus to be on the psychology behind Love in Motion. In 2016, Dancing the Distance was performed to two SOLD OUT audiences at Cambridge’s Green Street Studios. In 2018, the company performed Deeply Rooted to packed houses at The Dance Complex and further explored our mission of collaboration through our immersive performance at the SOWA District’s Kingston Gallery for In Pieces.
In our most recent season, the company collaborated with independent artist, Colleen Roddy to create Movement Filtration, a sold out evening of dance and craft beer at Dorchester Brewing Company. The 2018-2019 season culminated with Days Gone By presented at the Dance Complex and featuring three world premiere works, fan favorite repertoire, and “any minute now.” collaboratively choreographed with BAR Dance for Empower One Another. Artistic Director, Lacey Sasso is excited to continue to grow the company’s presence in Boston through both formal and informal performances in traditional and non-traditional spaces in the 2019 – 2020 season.
