  1. Calling DANCERS aged 15 - 21 for the workshop of a brand new musical this Summer (16th - 28th August)



    Spirit Young Performers Company will be casting just five exceptional dancers to be part of the Workshop Cast of a brand new musical. These dancers will spend 2 weeks of Summer working with a West End creative team, in a small cast of world-class young performers, for a live performance before industry pros.



    When/where does thew workshop take place?

    All rehearsals take place in London, UK. The cast will rehearse between Monday 16th August - Friday 27th August. Approximately 10am-5pm per day, though hours could occasionally vary depending on rehearsal requirements. The workshop performance will take place on Saturday 28th August. 
    What should selected dancers expect from the experience...
    This is as close as you can get to the professional workshop experience. You will be part of the development of a brand new musical. You will spend two weeks working with a professional creative team. You'll be expected to be flexible and adaptable, as the songs will be developing and changing throughout the process. You'll get a first-hand view of how musicals are made, in their very first stages. There will be just 9 dancers in the production, responsible for bringing the big dance numbers to life for the very first time.  At the end of the two weeks there will be a workshop performance, before an audience of industry professionals and producers. Dancers will also be able to invite friends/family to watch as well. This will be a presentation of new work, performed in a stripped-back theatre setting with live band.
    What does it cost?
    We're proud to be offering this opportunity for just £560. This covers two weeks of workshop with a professional creative team, plus the performance before industry pros. There are no hidden or additional costs. Scholarships are available to a limited number of perfomers from low income backgrounds. We can also accomodate instalment payment plans for any performer who needs this.

  2. Maybe I'm being dim but I can't see anything about choreographers, track record of comps attended





    The dance company is launching in September 2016; it is brand new so we do not have a track record of competitions yet.


    Until now we have just had the Performers Company, specialising predominantly in musical theatre. This company is immensely successful with many students being cast in the West End, as well as our performance troupes being chosen to perform on ITV, West End Live, Move It etc in the last year alone. So whilst the dance company is brand new, we are confident it will follow suit in becoming quickly successful. 


    The dance company will work with a variety of choreographers throughout the year. You can read about Performers Company staff on our website. For an idea of standard, our latest musical theatre troupe's performance at West End Live is available to view online too here as well as many other performance videos on our official channel

  4. Dear parents/guardians of young dancers,

    It may be of interest that - from October 2014 - Spirit Young Performers Company will be launching an Elite Dance Troupe. The performers selected for this troupe will perform in professionally filmed showcases and represent us at prestigious live events.

    We're looking for skilled dancers aged 10-17 who are dynamic and compelling performers. These dancers will train and rehearse with us every Sunday in Central London from 4pm - 6pm, working on jazz, contemporary, lyrical and modern routines. Performances will be professionally filmed every term and released to thousands of viewers and subscribers on our online channel. We are also lined up to perform at competitions and prestigious live events.


    For those who do not know, Spirit Young Performers Company is an acclaimed performing arts school, best known for filming our performances with a professional multi-camera filmcrew for invaluable showcase.

    We will be auditioning for the Elite Dance Troupe in July. To register your interest, please visit our website.
