Big desire to dance?

27 April 2016

Company Chameleon is calling out for young people, age 11 to 18, to join Chameleon Youth, its new youth dance company for Manchester.

What’s required is a positive attitude, loads of enthusiasm and, most importantly, a big desire to dance and be creative.

Dance experience is by no means essential – the company is looking for a mix of abilities.

This is an opportunity to…

  • Develop your dance skills through an exceptional programme of classes
  • Understand the workings of a professional dance theatre company
  • Learn about producing professional dance theatre for stage
  • Take part in a wide-range of performance opportunities

Style: Company Chameleon’s style is a real mix of techniques, which means you’ll develop a strong palette of approaches to dance and movement.

Music: Where there’s dance, there’s music and the playlist is varied too – pop, hip-hop, rap, classical and everything in between.

Progress: As young people progress through the company, there’ll be opportunities to make your own work and develop choreographic talents. Elements of leadership, teaching and peer-to-peer mentoring will be introduced, along with ideas on how to take your artform forward.

Since 2007, Company Chameleon has toured the world performing, working with a huge number of leading companies, choreographers and performers along the way. This tremendous amount of experience will form the bedrock of the youth company and its hands-on approach to creative development.

All in all, this is an incredible opportunity to develop as a young dance artist.
