Shuffle Dance Company Selection Taster

One of London’s leading youth contemporary dance groups is looking for new dancers!

If you are aged between 9 and 14 and thinking about developing your dance, choreographic and performance skills all whilst being in a friendly and supportive company, then Shuffle Dance Company might be the group for you.

Dance experience is desirable but not essential; we are looking for committed young artists who demonstrate creative potential and the will to work in a group and individually. Shuffle runs according to the academic year, with regular rehearsals on Saturday afternoons with Ihsaan De Banya, the company’s Rehearsal Director.

We are holding auditions on Sat 15 Sep, at two timeslots:

9.30am-11am
11.15am-12.45pm

Please note: You will only have to attend one session

Price per person: £5

If you cannot afford the audition fee, please get in touch with our friendly team who can provide further information on your Iris Tomlinson Fund and the application process.


The selection taster will consist of warm up/ technique and creative workshops led by rehearsal director Ihsaan and associate director Aaron Vickers. This will be followed by informal group discussion with the panel to find out more about the participants and why they’re thinking of joining Shuffle. Applicants will not need to prepare anything in advance; just bring your energy and enthusiasm.

Entry to the company is via these auditions only. Alternative audition dates will not be possible.

We ask that you send a photo of the participants face for identification on the audition day to childrenandyouthdance@theplace.org.uk. The deadline to do this is Mon 10 Sept. Please get in touch if this is not possible and our team can support.

Please get in touch with the Children & Youth Dance team if you have any questions: childrenandyouthdance@theplace.org.uk / 020 7121 1080
