October Events!

Hello Geeks!

We have a busy October planned for you, with three separate appearances in the next two weeks! Check out everything we have planned:

  • Book Signing Preview! – On Thursday, October 8th, we’ll be at the Rainbow Rowell lecture and book signing at the main Carnegie Library. After Rainbow’s lecture, we’ll present excerpts from Finding Margo, Losing Gus to entertain guests waiting for their turn at the signing table. We’ll have more details later this week, and there’ll be signs up around the first floor directing you to our location. Snippets of the show will be interspersed with short Q&A sessions, so you can come see a preview of the show, ask your questions, and still get over to the signing table when your number comes up! Check out the CLP Events website for info on signing up for the event!
  • The Maker Faire!Saturday, October 10th and Sunday, October 11th, Geeksdanz will present at the Pittsburgh Maker Faire! We’ve presented at the Maker Faire before, but this year it’ll be bigger than ever! Check out the Current Projects page for full details!
  • Finding Margo, Losing Gus – Encore Performance! – Did you miss the premiere in August? Never fear – we’re presenting a FREE encore of Finding Margo, Losing Gus at the Main Carnegie Library of Pittsburgh on Sunday, October 18th at 2 pm! Once again, full details are on the Current Projects page!

Whew! With so many events coming up, we hope you’ll come to see us at least once!

Bring it, Sir!

Thanks to everyone who braved the awful weather and came out to see our first Mad Libs show – it went really well, and we’re expecting an even bigger crowd this month when the weather will hopefully cooperate more! Our next show is on March 15th at 8 pm, and we’ll have a special guest with us, in the form of past Geeksdanzer Jamie Campbell! We’re excited to perform with her again, so come out – you won’t want to miss this!

In addition, Ellen and the danzers will be presenting a workshop, Movement for the Improviser, on March 15th from 2 to 5 pm. Registration is limited, so head over to the Steel City Improv Theater workshop page to sign up!

And finally, a sneak peek of the antics that went on during our promotional photo shoot last weekend. Stay tuned in the coming weeks for the big announcement!

Open Audition!


Choreographer Ellen Deutsch is looking for enthusiastic, friendly dancers proficient in both modern and ballet technique to audition for her new company.

Geeksdanz’s mission is to introduce dance to audiences that would not normally be drawn to it, and to illustrate the universality of dance as a means of emotional expression. Geeksdanz achieves this by systematically applying the context of dance to an enormous variety of topics and interests, and targeting performances towards the specific audiences who share those interests.

Previously a solo project, Ms. Deutsch is now seeking to establish Geeksdanz as a fully-fledged dance company rehearsing and performing in the Pittsburgh area. To that end, we are looking for as many dancers as we can get our hands on. Come one, come all!

DATE: August 25, 2012
TIME: 5 – 7 pm
LOCATION: Pittsburgh Dance Center
4765 Liberty Avenue
Pittsburgh, PA 15224
(In Bloomfield above the Starbucks in the old theater)


  • The audition will last approximately two hours and will consist of a modern warm-up (with occasional ballet combos) as well as modern repertoire and an improvisation exercise.
  • You may wish to bring kneepads, long sleeves and long pants for the improv section, but it’s not required.
  • Please bring a full resume with you.

For more info about the audition or the company, please contact me.
