offering a fixed-term, part-time post for a dance practitioner who can engage effectively with young people and develop our youth dance programme -
including the formation of a (traditional/folk-based) dance company for young people that can perform locally, nationally and internationally. The successful applicant will either be a folk dance teacher/practitioner with demonstrable experience of working successfully with young people OR a contemporary dance practitioner / teacher who wants to explore traditional music and dance in a range of work.
You will be prepared to learn and develop in post and have an enthusiasm for engaging with young people – and collaborating with the best traditional and other dance practitioners available to us. Folk dance isn’t about attempting to recreate the past – it is about engaging young people with traditional dance forms so that they can draw on that rich cultural history in their artistic expression.
The terms and conditions will be negotiable with the successful candidate within the resources we have available, but it is envisaged that the post will be for 2 years and
occupy the equivalent of up to 16 hours a week in the first 12 months. Some work will take place at Halsway Manor, some will be outreach – for example with local schools or at festivals nationally. Planning and administration work can be done from
home or from Halsway Manor.
Please phone Paul James at Halsway Manor at any time for an informal and confidential chat.
