Each work experience placement will include an insight into several departments with the organisation including Front of House, Technical, Marketing, Development and the Creative Team. Successful applicants will be set creative tasks and will have the opportunity to speak to staff about careers in dance and the arts. This is an office-based role and is recommended to those who are interested in finding out about what it means to “make dance happen”. The placement will not be primarily based in the studio or engaged in dancing and potential applicants should take this into consideration when applying for a placement.
Please note that students should apply for work experience directly, rather than parents or schools applying on their behalf. Applicants may submit a video application, answering the questions verbally if this is preferred.
