Following its successful bid to win £48,500 from ITV’s The Peoples Millions in November, Dance Factor Lincolnshire is seeking dance teachers and a producer to allow them to roll the project out across Lincolnshire from February 2015.
The People’s Millions funding will allow Dance Factor to expand the project to span seven districts and engage more than 750 young people in dance.
The project will take dance into local communities providing 11-18-year-olds with free evening street dance sessions which culminate in various semi-finals, including one at Guildhall Arts Centre, Grantham, and a grand final showcase event in May.
The project requires a number of passionate and enthusiastic dance teachers and/or dance schools to help with delivery of the street dance sessions for participants. There is also the opportunity for someone with an interest in teaching dance that lacks experience, or has no experience of teaching street dance, to join the project as training for the suitable candidate could be made available.
A producer is required to support the planning, running and management of the semi-finals and the grand final event.
The deadline for both opportunities is Friday, January 9. To find out more and download application forms visit the Register Me page on Dance Factor Lincolnshire’s website.
Young people can also register their interest in being involved in the project on the website.
Dance Factor, is a run by InspireDance, with support from various partners including, artsNK, Transported, City of Lincoln Council, South Holland District Council, Boston Borough Council, North Kesteven District Council, North Hykeham Town Council, Positive Futures, Sportivate, 1Life and Leisure in the Community.
