Janet Jackson is holding auditions for dancers. She made the announcement in a video via Instagram Thursday. “Hey you guys,” she begins. “I’ve got some really exciting news. I’m looking for dancers to dance with me on some really cool upcoming projects.”
As the clip continues, it shows a variety of different people explaining the rules of Janet’s social media open call for new dancers, which is explicitly open to people of all ethnic backgrounds and sizes.
Hopefuls can show off their best choreography or freestyle to their favorite Janet track in a video and post their auditions to Instagram, Facebook, Twitter or musical.ly, along with using the hashtag #DanceWithJanet.
If you want to in audition in person, head to Starwest Studios in Burbank, California, on April 23rd.
One of Janet’s newest dancers, Allison Buczkowski, gave some advice to hopefuls. “Dancers should definitely do their research and know who they are auditioning for,” she says. “Be sure if you are auditioning in person or via one of the social media platforms, you are showing who you are. Don’t be what you think Janet will like.”
She adds, “What’s unique about Janet’s dancers is, she allows us to be ourselves. So be yourself, come ready to dance and break a leg!”
