RKDC seeks male dancers to learn part of the 5 SOLDIERS repertoire to join the company in New York and Washington DC in January 2018.

Where: DanceXchange, Level 5, Birmingham Hippodrome, Thorp Street, Birmingham B5 4TB

When: Friday 10 November 2017

Dancers need these qualities:

  • Very fast at learning
  • Good memory for complex material
  • Able to do some preparation alone
  • Strong posture and ‘military’ look * (although please read the notes below)
  • Fit, strong and high stamina levels
  • Good acting ability
  • Team player
  • Valid passport and able to attain a USA Visa

*We welcome applications from people who feel they may not ‘look’ like the British Army, or who wouldn’t think they could be part of a show that represents the military. Through this show we are breaking so many stereotypes, and we are very proud of this. So much so that the Army are supporting us. We want this show to reflect the UK’s diverse society and be representative of society fully.
