Try MARK KAPPEL, he is an established dance agent for many years and might be able to help you. Here is the website;

http://members.aol.com/MARKKAPL1/MARKKAPL1.htm

Or another geat one is "Santa Barbara Artists Management" run by Sayat Assatrian, he is a great guy and has extensive contacts in the industry. Here is the website address;

http://www.sayatartists.com

I am not trying to scare you here but right now is a very bad time of the year for guest artist engagements in the USA :( , or atleast good paying ones, 1000.00+ per performance 8) . Additionally, there are soooo many dancers entering the free-lance market right now because of companies cutting back, companies having labor problems i.e. Wash Ballet, or companies just closing their doors :cry: . My best advice for you, and I speak from years of experience here :wink: is to look :shock: into guest artist engagements in foreign markets such as Europe, Canada, Australia, etc. Of course all of this depends on your background experience.

A helpful website if you are looking for work as a dancer is Needdancer.com. Proved more beneficial to me than dance agents. Check it out.

Well if it isn't agents you want there is a plethura of resources on the web to bookmark for guest artist opportunities.
here are a few;

Playbill Castings and Jobs at http://www.playbill.com/jobs/find/

New York Foundation for the Arts at http://www.nyfa.org/level2.asp?id=54&fid=2

World of Ballet which is a fantastic free website at http://f16.parsimony.net/forum27624/

Here on CriticalDance there is a good "Auditions and Opportunities" forum.

Voice of Dance also has a good callboard for guestings and auditions. I don't know their website address offhand but google it and you should be able to find it.

Dancers Pro is great at http://www.dancerspro.com/

Grover Dale's Answers4Dancers is pretty good too at http://www.answers4dancers.com/

One thing you don't want to do when looking for guest artist work is limit yourself to just one resource. Use them ALL and use them as much as possible.

PS - Anyone care to go fishing :wink:

Well, Antuan, Jane1007, and Juri, I'm not surprised that you all three have similar feelings about the site, since you're all three posting from the same computer.
