Female Dancers

New Creations Collective are looking for dancers for their exciting brand-new production of The Secret Garden. The production is an outdoor show touring to open air theatres, parks and heritage sites across the South East England Region this summer.

Dancers must have at least 3 years of professional vocational training in both ballet and contemporary. All dancers must have very good natural acting ability as story telling is at the heart of the performance. Due to some more rural performance locations the ability to drive would be useful but is not essential.

Dancers must be open to working collaboratively during the process of creating this new production. Dancers must be reliable, willing to work outdoors, fully committed to excellence and professionalism and passionate about the company’s chief principles and aims.

 

We are open to hearing from both experienced professionals and recent graduates.

Applicants MUST be available for the following dates. The addition of further performance dates is highly likely so we will therefore be asking cast members for first refusal on all dates between 3rd July-5th September.

Production Dates;

Rehearsal Week 1 – 1st-5th June

Rehearsal Week 2 – 7th-11th June

Outdoor Pilot Performance – 12th June

Due to Covid restrictions we are going to look at online submissions first, shortlisted candidates will then be invited for a short interview with the director and a company class on Sunday 18th April in Kent (Applicants must therefore be available and in the UK on this date!)
