MARIN, California– During the day they are hiring managers and contractors, at night they glide across the stage as performers. Dance company Don’t Quit Your Day Job Dancers proves that dreams can live alongside any career path.
“We really want passion and purpose in life, and I feel like my company gave that to people,” said Doree Clark, artistic director of Don’t Quit Your Day Job Dancers. “They can dance at any age, at any skill level, and they will fulfill a dream of performing that they might have had as a kid and never did.”
The Performance Company hosts community members across a range of professions, ages and dance backgrounds.
“It wasn’t a 20’s or teenage group, it was a group of adults who wanted to dance,” said Jennifer Gotti, dancer and human resources manager. “We had people up to about 90 who danced with us.”
The Don’t Quit Your Day Job Dancers perform “Dansicals,” a form of storytelling that weaves movement and dialogue to convey meaningful messages. The company’s upcoming show, The Wild Soul, encourages true self-expression.
“This also includes letting go and enjoying what we have,” says Michael Serecsko, dancer and contractor.
Dancer Amy Rankin-Williams added, “Our world is quite intense, so a little laugh and a little bit touch someone’s heart, a little inspiration goes a long way.”
