Freelance Dance Practitioners

We are seeking to recruit a number of freelance Dance Practitioners to help deliver and grow our successful Schools’ Programme and nurture long-term relationships with our partner schools.

The dx Schools’ Programme is an integral part of our outreach strategy, aiming to extend our engagement with children and young people in diverse communities across the city, and to develop the next generation of audiences, performers and leaders.

Through our schools’ work, we aim to develop the skills, creativity, confidence, and wellbeing of the students, and to inspire the teaching workforce with creative approaches they can use beyond our sessions.

The Dance Practitioner role primarily involves working with our partner schools to develop and deliver tailored programmes of regular activity in education settings, as well as Continuing Professional Development for teachers. It may also involve working with children and young people on additional special projects, performances and events, in line with the dx outreach strategy.

If you are a motivated and inspirational dance practitioner, with a proven track record of working with children and young people in education settings, a high level of technical and creative skills, and a strong belief in the importance of creative learning, we’d love to hear from you!
