HOLLY'S LOOK HEAR ARTIST'S SHOWCASES IN NYC & VEGAS



We've got incredible news! A4D member Holly Dayton is holding two of her Look Hear Artist's Showcases; one in NYC on March 22nd and a second one in Las Vegas on March 25th. Holly created Look Hear with the intent to bring healing to the community by providing love, support, and encouragement for performers.

Holly explains it this way: ‘What we do as artists, is quite difficult, to be honest. The lives we choose and the path we're on is not easy. In New York, it means facing countless no’s, hours waiting on the street to be seen at an audition, and  working long hours at a side job. In Las Vegas, it means being in a show for several years but being artistically unfulfilled. Or perhaps, fighting feeling stagnant and settled in your craft. 

So why do we do it? Because choosing this path also means pursuing your passion, living life to the fullest, feeling the fire and the high from an audition or a performance on a stage. That’s something I would never trade.’

The next Look Hear events will mark the 6th one in Las Vegas and the 2nd in NYC. The bonus is a community is being built and encouraging friendships are being formed.

Here's your chance to join Holly on Friday, March 22nd at Renew Queens (47-20 11th Street, Long Island City, New York) or Monday, March 25 in Las Vegas at the Artifice (1025 South 1st Street Las Vegas, Nevada).

Each event will be a night of celebrating the beautiful talent and creativity of the community; a night to encourage and lift up one another. Holly's mission? Be Inspired. Get Creative. What is your story?

 A4D is about more than ‘jobs and auditions.’
It’s a community where dancers are growing into faster, better, and more productive versions of themselves.


Our Meet-Up Leaders

These members have been making themselves valuable to each other and have generously participated on FORUM4DANCERS for as long as we can remember. Collectively, these members are in SAG-AFTRA, EQUITY, have appeared on Broadway, Regional Tours, National Tours, International Tours, TV shows, National Commercials, Cruise Ships, and Industrials. They've appeared in music videos, been back up dancers for big name stars, and have appeared in large production Las Vegas shows. They all started their careers not knowing where dance would take them, but what they've learned along the way, they freely share with other members to help them find their greatest potential. They represent nearly 100 combined years of membership on A4D!

Our July 2016 Meet-Up

Meet-Ups are a total win 4 dancers. Sharing works. Whether it happens In Grover’s kitchen, a dance studio, or a neighborhood Starbucks, the results consistently surprise the heck out of us. At the July 24 Meet-Up, A4D's Suzy Miller backed Grover into a corner and probed him for ‘insights’ about his first movie role in ‘The Unsinkable Molly Brown.’ She got the truth. So did a dozen other dancers in the room.

Grover gave himself permission to ‘risk everything’ in front of the cameras. He decided to go for it. That was only part of the pay-off. A year later, the same performance secured a co-starring role with Gene Kelly in ‘The Young Girls Of Rochefort.’ The benefits didn’t stop there.

A4Ders... in various states of hope and laughter... took it all in. Thankfully, Garrett Minniti's cameras were rolling and recorded all the personal treasures that surfaced. Take a look at all the fun that was captured.
