Sorry, you missed this event, SIGN UP to get information on our forthcoming shows

Audition applications for Shuffle youth dance company are now open!

Do you love to create, move and perform? Are you looking to develop your choreographic and performance skills? If you’re aged 9-14 (school years 5 to 9) and want to build on your creative and technical dance skills in a warm and supportive environment, perhaps Shuffle is for you!

Shuffle meet every Saturday of term time for a full academic year, working alongside their artistic director Ihsaan De Banya. Prior dance experience is desirable but not essential: we are looking for committed young artists who demonstrate creative potential and the ability to work well in a group and individually.

Entry to Shuffle is by audition only. To attend this year’s audition, please reserve your space by booking online using the green BOOK NOW button on the left hand side of this webpage and completing the application form found here: Application Form. We also ask all applicants to send a photo of the participant’s face or a headshot to childrenandyouthdance@theplace.org.uk for audition purposes. These will be deleted after the audition.

The audition will take place on Sat 7 Sep 2019, from 10am - 12pm.
Registration will begin from 9.30am; please arrive in time to start promptly at 10am.

The audition will consist of various tasks delivered by Ihsaan De Banya and Lucy Evans, followed by a 15 minutes chat in smaller groups with the panel. At 11.45am, parents and carers should re-join their young dancers in the audition studio for a question and answer session with the panel.

Please note: Alternative audition dates and times will not be available. Unfortunately, due to the quantity of applicants and the availability of spaces, we will be unable to offer all applicants a place.
