2018 Job Posting: Flash Mob Choreographers

2018 London Dance Festival
Call for Flash Mob Choreographers

The London Dance Festival is inviting all London dance artists to apply for the job of Flash Mob Choreographer for the 2018 festival. The festival will take place in various locations in downtown London from June 29 to July 1. The Flash Mob performance will happen on June 30th in Ivey Park.

We are seeking for one or two choreographers to create an engaging flash mob dance. The dance may be choreographed in any style that is accessible for participants of all ages and abilities. Most of the dance must be simple and easy to learn, but it may also include a small section of more advanced steps for experienced dancers. Performances will take place outdoors on a grass or concrete surface.

Choreographers will perform the dance at Ivey Park on June 30th as part of the Community Showcase event. The choreographers will also tour the city in June to facilitate a series of workshops in which they’ll teach the dance in studios, businesses, public schools, and organizations.

Choreographers will be paid for the creation and performance of the dance, and the facilitation of workshops. Artists are welcome to apply as a team or individually. All applicants must be available for workshop bookings at various times throughout the week in June. (We respect that applicants may have other jobs and commitments and the selected artists’ schedules will be taken into account when booking workshops). Applicants MUST be available on Saturday, June 30th (no exceptions can be made).

To apply, submit the following to londondancefestival@gmail.com:

  1. Applicant resume, including previous choreography and performance experience. Please attach a cover letter.
  2. Artist biography (max 150 words).
  3. Two high resolution photos to be used for promotion of festival events (will only be used if selected, please include photographer’s name).
  4. Web link to footage of previous choreography. Video submitted must be from the last five years. (Please ensure web links are active and working).

Application deadline is May 5th
