Children's Choreographer, Upstage Performance Group

Children's Choreographer, Upstage Performance Group

During the summer, Upstage Performance Group delivers a weeklong 'showbuild' in Tetbury, Gloucestershire with young people aged 11 – 15 years. Over five days we devise a piece of theatre with original script, music, design and dance. We’re looking for a choreographer who is:

- Experienced at choreographing children & young people.

- Able to create simple, memorable dances (to original songs) with limited time

- Happy to be assistant to our set-designer (and support children with design).

The songs themselves are written on Monday/Tuesday. Whilst we often use movement early on in the process (e.g. as a devising technique), our dance rehearsal takes place on the penultimate day (Thursday), in one long afternoon rehearsal.

The week runs 25th– 29th July. There's no need to be local as accommodation (and food) is provided. Transport is not provided, though you may be able to hitch a lift if a facilitator is driving from London. We arrive on the Sunday evening before. The fee is £480 for the week.

If interested, email Oscar at including your CV and a covering letter. Interviews will take place on 10th and 11th May in Whitechapel, London.
