Looking for Dancers: Audition Call Out

We are looking for one female and one or two male dancers with outstanding ability in contemporary dance, sound professional training and substantial performance experience for two different projects in 2018 and 2019.

Initially contracts will be offered for these projects only, but subsequently further work may be offered.

Journey of the Magi

Inspired by T S Eliot’s poem, Journey of the Magi is a festive, light-hearted, joyful event with a moving and profound message. Aimed at families, the show attracts all ages and tours to churches, schools and community venues across the UK. Positions are vacant for a male dancer and a female dancer/cover dancer. This show requires varied character work and strong contemporary technique.

Bread of Life

Bread of Life is a deeply moving production of movement, story and music choreographed by Suzannah McCreight (https://www.suzannahmccreight.co.uk/). About communion and community, it is a full-length show made up of solos, duets and group work, all set and performed in the round. The show tours to churches and community venues across the UK. A position is vacant for a strong male dancer, who must be experienced in lifting.

We are looking for dancers for both projects who:

  • Have completed full-time professional dance training
  • Are quick at picking up material
  • Have excellent performance skills
  • Will be committed both in research and in rehearsal to fulfil the role required
  • Are willing to tour nationally
  • Are sympathetic to the Company's Christian ethos

Both shows express and communicate contemporary Christian beliefs and values, so therefore knowledge and understanding of these will be an advantage.

Springs delivers an extensive education programme and so the company is also looking for dancers that may be interested in teaching. Please include teaching experience in your application if relevant.

Rehearsals and touring will be part-time. Dancers are paid on a self-employed basis.
