EXPLORE Programme 

Dancers Call Out for 'EXPLORE' professional development Programme 


The EXPLORE programme is delivered in partnership with our affiliated organisation Artis Community. The programme involves skills sharing and training across community dance and dance performance practices, training our staff to work between our two organisations. Each year we also invite a number of independent artists into the programme who would like to upskill in these areas.

Each year we invite emerging dancers, physical theatre performers and dance teachers to apply to join Ransack Dance Company's new research and development rehearsals and perform with the company. Due to Covid-19, this year we are going digital...We invite artists to apply to join us for online professional development rehearsals with our Director and professional dancers. We'll share our unique practice and repertoire, as well as researching and developing ideas for our brand new work!

Successful applicants will receive the following online training:

- Daily professional company class with Ransack Dance Company.

- CPD exploring existing repertoire.

- Joining the company to research and develop choreographic ideas for our new work.

- Paid training expenses of £165 covering three days.
