Call for young dancers: Maypole Remixed outdoor dance commission

As part of U.Dance 2018, the nation’s annual youth dance festival, are offering youth dance groups and dancers from the East of England the fantastic opportunity to take part in a new and exciting youth dance commission created by Folk Dance Remixed

They are recruiting up to 40 young dancers, either from dance groups or individuals, aged 12–19 (up to 25 years for dancers with additional needs), from all dance genres to create and perform Maypole Remixed - a vibrant, new outdoor dance work centred on a maypole. 

Maypole Remixed will celebrate some of the old and new dance and music cultural heritages to be found in the region - fusing traditional folk dance styles from the East of England with contemporary hip hop dance and especially commissioned recorded and live music.

There will be three creative workshops and rehearsals with professional dancers and live musicians, leading to two outdoor performances on Saturday 14 July as part of the U.Dance 2018 festival. 

You can apply as a dance group, or an individual, by completing the expression of interest form by Friday 11 May. You must commit to attending all the rehearsal and performance dates below. Travel bursaries are available.
