Join us at The Place on Sat 21 Jul for an invigorating and creative taster session with The Place’s junior youth dance company Shuffle.

What can I expect?

Our Shuffle taster sessions provide an opportunity to experience what it is like to be a Shuffle company member.  

The session will consist of a contemporary dance class led by Creative Director, Ihsaan de Banya, with an opportunity to learn sections of the current company piece taught by company members. You will also have the chance to talk to the dancers about their experiences and you then get the opportunity to ask Ihsaan or the company dancers any questions that you have.

If you have any questions or special requirements that we need to be aware of to help support your experience with us, contact the children and youth dance team on 0207 121 1080 or

I want to audition for Shuffle do I need to attend the taster?

No, you do not need to attend a taster session prior to auditioning but it is recommended so that you get an insight into the 'company life' and to hopefully confirm if you’d like to audition for the company.
