What we do
Located in the heart of the Pike Place Market in downtown Seattle, Can Can’s intimate, underground setting is evocative of Paris at the turn of the 20th century. Celebrating over 12 years and nearly 7000 shows, the company presents multimedia productions with original music, projections, and apparatuses that accentuate multiple genres of performance including dance (classic, modern, cabaret, burlesque), acrobatics, singing and comedy. Shows run Wednesday through Sunday (with an average of 10 shows a week for full-time contractors), year round.
What we are looking for
Can Can, one of the most celebrated cabaret theatres in the US, is doing a national search for dancers and singers (male and female) to join Can Can Production's professional dance theatre company. We offer coveted paid positions with competitive compensation for full-time performers. We are looking for strong technical dancers with a history of classical training. Bonus if you can MC, dance, and sing. Must be willing to relocate/reside in Seattle for the duration of contract. Performance quality is essential. Our performers are extremely diverse, from all backgrounds and dynamic in their own individual ways.

The rehearsal schedule is 3 days a week generally beginning 2 months prior to opening of the show.
