DRILL's next dance program for young people, Junior Company, is here and we're looking for dancers to become a part of our 2019 Company!

Junior Company is a contemporary dance program for young people aged 9 to 14, running for eight weeks over October and November. In 2019 DRILL will be offering two Junior Company programs, one in Glenorchy and one in Clarence.

The Glenorchy Junior Company will be rehearsing and performing at the Moonah Arts Centre, led by choreographer Angela Barnard. The Clarence Junior Company will be rehearsing at Industrie Performing Arts and performed at Rosny College, led by choreographer Hannah Vermeulen.

Junior Company is a non-competitive, collaborative dance experience that values the young dancers’ input, and encourages them to engage with a theme and respond with their own choreography.

The project includes:

  • Contemporary technique classes during which participants will learn dance phrases that promote freedom of movement, including floor work.

  • Instruction on safe dance practice.

  • Discussions on the topic/theme of the work.

  • Learning movement material made by the choreographer in response to the theme.

  • Choreographic tasks that ask participants to create and share their own choreography, both individually and in groups.

  • Activities that facilitate sharing, communication, and the creation of new friendships.

  • The creation of an original contemporary dance piece, performed in a theatrical setting with lights, sound and costumes.

In the final week, the company will present the work, performing for their peers, family and community. The dancers will also perform at the MONA 24 Carrot Carnival on November 7th.

The fee for Junior Company is $150, which includes all classes, rehearsals, costume and a piece of DRILL merchandise to keep. Payment plans are available, allowing you to pay this in smaller instalments.

There is no formal audition process for this project, and DRILL will endeavour to include all interested participants who attend the call out and who can commit to the project (as much as capacity allows). Interested participants MUST register below before the respective call out days.
