Shift youth dance company audition

Sat 9 September


For young dancers aged 14-19 years

Are you interested in joining one of London’s leading contemporary dance youth companies? Then book your audition for Shift.

Who can join Shift?

Anyone aged 14-19years old can apply to join Shift. Some dance experience is desirable but not essential. We are looking for interesting young artists who show creative potential and who are willing to work as part of a team.

Shift members need to be ready to Commit. Shift is for the whole academic year. Dancers meet every Thursday during term-time from 5.30pm-8pm with Hilary Stainsby, Shift’s rehearsal director.

The Audition

Participants need to book one of the two Auditions offered:

Saturday 9 September, 10am- 1pm

Saturday 9 September, 1.30 – 4.30pm

The Audition Session will consist of a technique class and creative workshop led by Shift’s Creative Director, Hilary Stainsby which will last 90 minutes. This will be followed by informal one-to-one interviews with the panel to find out more about each participant and why they would like to join Shift. 

Entry to the company is by one of these auditions only. We cannot offer a place in the company to anyone who does not attend an audition.

Applicants do not need to prepare anything in advance, just bring your energy, enthusiasm and creativity. You will also need to fill out an Applicant Information Form and we ask if you can, to bring a headshot with you on the day. 

Booking deadline: Thursday 7 September, 12pm noon

There is no fee to audition.

Times: 10am - 1pm & 1.30 - 4.30pm
Duration: 180 mins
