We’d love people to dress in character – see our gallery for the vibe!
We are hosting an artist sharing day where dancers will have the chance to learn some hip hop & folk dance, and beat boxers will collaborate with musicians. It’s a fantastic opportunity to join in a creative, inspiring and fun workshop day and meet new artists.
If you are available this summer, you can also audition to be in the company for our summer 2016 tour and/or workshop team.
We are remounting our show, Step Hop House, and developing our Street Dance the Maypole workshops and Ceilidh Jam experience. If we are unsuccessful with our funding bid we will be taking a smaller company on tour. We’ve had 3 hugely successful summer tours so far and we’re looking forward to making 2016 the best yet!
If you’re up for joining a groundbreaking company, are prepared to learn new moves and fuse folk with hip hop, love working outdoors, can be part of a team to build and strike the set with grace and good humour, who will camp on the odd occasion and put their all into the show – then come on down!
‘I walked away with a smile! It was like seeing an old black and white Charlie Chaplin movie and watching it change into colour, traditional styles of dance, music and mime mixed with the new, beautiful and genius….’ Lil Tim, breakdancer
