Work Placements

Our work placements are designed for young people who may be interested in careers in the arts or dance. They give you opportunities to experience the world of work.

At DanceXchange, we know that it’s hard to get work in the arts. More than ever, dance is now a portfolio career. From the outset, you need to learn how to run your career as a business.

Placements and internships 

We offer a small selection of work placements and internships each year. They include potential opportunities at IDFB 2016. You’ll gain valuable insights and experience into many aspects of our transformative work.

We offer short term work placements for Year 10 pupils, especially either young people studying dance or those from the Hodge Hill district. This is our Arts Champions area.

And we may be able to offer placements for dance students in Further or Higher education.

Every year we have several paid six month internships, that include project management and communications opportunities.

Please note: Our opportunities do not include teaching or performance.
