Expressions Dance Company (EDC) is now seeking expressions of interest from male and female dancers wishing to be considered for an audition for a professional position in the company. The company is seeking to fill 1 male and 1 female position from the start of 2018.

“Weir’s movement always generates excitement. There’s a visceral thrill of seeing bodies propelling through space, dancers launching themselves or being hurled in all directions. The intricacies of Weir’s lift transitions, executed seamlessly by her superb ensemble, are another Weir hallmark.” The Courier-Mail
“A stunning display of grace, strength, and pure raw emotions.” Brisbane Times
