Boston Dance Theater (BDT) seeks versatile dance artists with strong technical, creative, and performance abilities for part time contracts for the 2023/24 season. 

BDT has immediate openings for multiple positions within the company. BDT supports artists through four different contracted positions that run 39 weeks out of the year; Core Member Sr, Core Member Jr, Apprentice, Trainee Program. Core member positions are salaried (informed by the MIT Living Wage Calculator for Boston Metropolitan Area) and come with health, vision, and dental benefit package options. All dancers rehearse Monday-Friday for approximately 20 hours per week. Responsibilities include interpreting company repertoire, participating in company-wide professional development (assets for artists, anti-racism, and conflict resolution) training, facilitating company class, and serving as BDT ambassadors within the broader dance community during a time when Boston Dance Theater’s at-home activity is increasing and the company is preparing for national touring.
