New Creations Collective are looking for male dancers for their exciting brand-new outdoor production of The Secret Garden.

Where: South East England

When: 1st June-5th September

Deadline for applications: 12th April

New Creations Collective are looking for dancers for their exciting brand-new production of The Secret Garden. The production is an outdoor show touring to open air theatres, parks and heritage sites across the South East England Region this summer.

​Dancers must have at least 3 years of professional vocational training in both ballet and contemporary. All dancers must have very good natural acting ability as story telling is at the heart of the performance. Due to some more rural performance locations the ability to drive would be useful but is not essential.

Dancers must be open to working collaboratively during the process of creating this new production. Dancers must be reliable, willing to work outdoors, fully committed to excellence and professionalism and passionate about the company’s chief principles and aims.

We are open to hearing from both experienced professionals and recent graduates.

​Applicants MUST be available for the following dates. The addition of further performance dates is highly likely so we will therefore be asking cast members for first refusal on all dates between 3rd July-5th September.

​Production Dates;
Rehearsal Week 1 – 1st-5th June
Rehearsal Week 2 – 7th-11th June
Outdoor Pilot Performance – 12th June
