LSS are working in collaboration with Element Arts Company and giving the opportunity to rehearse and perform with their professional dancers. Priority will be given to those with full membership. If you are new to the LSS please try one of our Sunday dance workshops and ask the teacher to recommend you for this ala to the dance team.
At least some of the people in this section will need to have some agility/physical confidence as the section incorporates props into the choreography. If this concerns you, please still apply, as we can discuss suitability.
8 places, 3 still available.
