Job Description

Creative Academy is seeking an experienced choreographer for the commission of their piece ‘Level Up’.

Role and Requirements

Once entrusted in this role we require you to collaborate with our company to create a 20 minute piece of choreography. This will involve:

  • Proposing creative tasks and original choreographic phrases regularly to develop the progression of our piece.
  • Provide the company with a clear vision and direction for our piece in collaboration with our stimulus.
  • We are looking for a choreographer with a professional outlook and reliable work ethic which matches the company. This is an artistic assessment piece and our company is looking for a choreographer that brings out the strengths within our team.
  • A preferable requirement for this role is choreographic experience within both the commercial and contemporary sectors as we want our piece to be in a contemporary commercial fusion style.
  • For employment purposes we require you to have acquired an Undergraduate Degree, public liability insurance, a Disclosure and Barring Service (DBS check) and a unique tax reference number.

Stimulus
