Work Experience

In order to minimise the potential spread of infection of Covid-19 we are unfortunately unable to offer our usual work experience and professional development opportunities and placements to school, college and university students at the moment. Please keep checking back to this page, or follow us on social media for updates – this is an important part of our work and we will reinstate them as soon as we are able.

In the meantime, please do not apply for work placements at the moment as we are unable to process your demand, but for information, under normal circumstances we can offer an office or practical dance based placement with us: single days, multiple days or up to one week in total. Applicants must be 16 or over, placements may not always be available subject to company touring schedules. We will try our best to accommodate your request. Once the placements open again, please allow 28 days for a response from us.

In normal circumstances we also offer special Experience Days to schools, colleges and university groups, where students can visit us in our beautiful rehearsal and creation space in Leamington Spa Town Hall to enjoy a day in the life of dancer: take part in company class, watch rehearsals, dance on one of our sets (subject to availability) and get a chance to speak to our dancers in a Q&A session. Modified experience days (class with our dance teacher in a separate studio, digital Q&A with our dancers, and access to rehearsals compliant with our Covid protocol) may still be possible during Covid-19 for smaller groups, so please get in touch if you are interested.
