Participation

Shuffle dance company

Shuffle is the junior dance company at The Place for young dancers 9-14 years.

Shuffle (for young dancers aged 9-14) meet every Saturday of term time from 1.00pm-2.45pm. The company is led by artistic director Ihsaan De Banya, who works collaboratively with the group to create new dance pieces that are performed throughout the year. Shuffle can expect to have on average one dance performance opportunity per term, although this varies depending on the platforms that are available for us to apply to.

Entry to Shuffle is via audition only. Shuffle auditions take place in September each year, with a chance to meet the artistic director as well as current members of Shuffle. Please check our audition page here for more information.

Shuffle requires a year-long commitment from September through to July: regular attendance is important to ensure smooth creation and rehearsal processes. The full cost of Shuffle is £360, which covers the cost of a company hoodie, session fees throughout the year as well as all performance opportunities. Commitment to paying the full fee is necessary: we do not offer refunds unless for medical reasons (and on receipt of a medical note).

For any questions regarding Shuffle, please contact the Children and Youth Dance Team on 020 7121 1080 or by emailing childrenandyouthdance@theplace.org.uk
