2018 ESSENCE Festival headliner Janet Jackson is giving rising and established dancers the chance of a lifetime.
Taking to her Instagram page on Thursday afternoon, the entertainment icon personally announced a worldwide casting call for dancers looking to be a part of a few upcoming projects she has in the works.
“Hey you guys, I’ve got some exciting news,” Janet said in the video clip. “I’m looking for dancers to dance with me on some really cool upcoming projects.”
The dance queen was all smiles in the selfie video, which also featured a few members of her team, who joined in to help spread the word.
Per the instructions of Ms. Jackson and her team, there are 2 ways interested dancers can audition.
In-person auditions will be held Monday, April 23, at Starwest Studios Burbank, CA from 9AM – 5PM PDT. Those who can’t make the in-person auditions should upload a video of themselves showing off their best Janet Jackson choreography, or dancing to their favorite Janet Jackson song. Audition videos can be uploaded to Instagram, Facebook or Twitter and should include the hashtag, #DanceWithJanet.
