The Apprentice Company Dancer will join the Company on a two-year paid apprenticeship programme starting in July 2024.
We’re looking for dancers, age 21+, who are passionate about the artform and who can demonstrate a high level of commitment to their dance training and development so far, having completed a degree or equivalent.
As a core member of the creative team, you will:
- Take part in the Company’s weekly training programme
- Rehearse and perform in Company repertoire at theatres, events and festivals
- Support the Artistic Directors in the choreographic and creative development of a wide range of projects
- Actively engage in the delivery of our learning and participation programme
Whilst the role will primarily be working at the Company’s home base of Openshaw in Manchester, the successful candidate will also tour nationally and internationally throughout the year – locations will vary depending on the Company’s touring schedule and projects that are taking place.
We particularly welcome black, Asian and ethnically diverse applicants because these groups are currently under-represented in the dance workforce.
