This role is to start as soon as possible
Initial contract: 10 days at £150 (total: £1500)
We endeavour to collaborate with someone who would like to work with us on a long-term basis and grow with the organisation and therefore future additional work will be available (subject to funding).
We welcome applications from people of all backgrounds and experiences, particularly those currently under-represented in the arts in Wales, including D/deaf and disabled people, Welsh speakers and people of the global majority.
If you would like to ask any questions about the role before applying, or discuss any access needs please contact firstname.lastname@example.org.
Emerging Choreographers Support Programme
Ransack Dance Company are calling out to emerging choreographers based in Wales, who would like to collaborate with us on a professional development project.
After a successful collaboration project with choreographer, Liam Wallace, last year, we would now like to open up another training opportunity to an additional choreographer this year.
The idea is that we would support you by offering one-to-one support from our Director and Fundraiser to apply for funding to run your own professional development project in collaboration with Ransack. Funding would include a budget to pay yourself fully for your time spent on the training project and any travel/accommodation needed to join us in touring activity.
Within this project we can offer practical support such as shadowing opportunities, including shadowing our production rehearsals and touring performances, mentoring from our Director and opportunity to research and develop your own performance work / projects with our dancers. We would work together to design and carry out a personally designed project, from which you feel you would benefit the most.
If you are interested in discussing this further please get in touch with our Director, Sarah, at email@example.com.
Deadline for expressions of interest Friday 26th May
We welcome choreographers of all backgrounds to apply, but are particularly keen to support people from under-represented groups in the arts in Wales, including D/deaf and disabled people, Welsh speakers and people of the global majority.
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.
As part of the project, 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. 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 training:
- Daily professional company class with Ransack Dance Company.
- Joining the company to research and develop choreographic ideas for our new work.
- Access to the wider EXPLORE training programme with Artis Community, including paid shadowing opportunities on their community dance programme.
-- Paid training expenses of £100 per day.
