New apprenticeships at Norrdans – apply now!

Hello dance student! We are looking for two apprentices for the next season (20/21). An apprenticeship at Norrdans means a lot of dancing and joining our mission to bring contemporary dance and choreography to the citizens of northern Sweden.

The season will entail works by Shumpei Nemoto, Nicole Beutler, Ludvig Daae and Martin Forsberg. You will also be dancing in the piece ”Magnet” by Maria Ulriksson. Also there will be workshops, teaching, community dance and a bunch of really interesting guest teachers.

Our requirements

You need to be enrolled in a higher dance education/university/conservatory that will approve the apprenticeship. The apprenticeship runs for the entire 20/21 season, from early August 2020 to June 2021. You should be in your last year of education.

You should have a fundamental experience within contemporary dance and knowledge of diverse improvisation practices. We are a small company in rural Sweden, so good social skills and experience of isolation might come in handy! 😉

Audition process

Usually we have a quite conventional audition workshop. However, the situation this year has made us a bit more creative. You now apply via our form where you’ll present yourself by submitting a cover letter, a portrait photo and a video of you improvising (We do welcome kitchen and living room improvisations!). Successful applicants will receive further instructions on tasks to perform, document and submit. After another selection, a smaller group of dance students will be invited to online interviews. And Voilá! We’ll have found our apprentices.

We’re looking forward to dance with you!
