Ignition: Free physical training programme for young men aged 16-20

Frantic Ignition

Ignition is back!

Are you male? Aged 16-20? Are you risk-taking and energetic? Do you want to be challenged and achieve what you never thought was possible? Then this is for you!

Ignition is Frantic Assembly's free, national training programme for young men aged 16-20. Taster workshops are an opportunity to try out Frantic Assembly's high-energy, risk-taking, physical style. Trial workshops build on skills learnt in the Tasters and discover the Ignition 2017 Company. Both workshops are completely FREE and you don’t need any experience to take part, just bring your energy and personality!

By coming to a Trial workshop, you are also automatically part of the Back Up programme, meaning further training with Frantic Assembly and other exciting opportunities at Dance Base, just for you, even if you don’t get into the company!

Think you have what it takes? Register now for the open Taster Session and Trial at Dance Base in Edinburgh:

Taster Workshop on Saturday 9 September, 15.00-17.00: The Taster workshop is a good opportunity to try out our style of theatre, gain new skills and meet the Frantic Ignition team.

Trial on Sunday 24 September, 2-hour time slot between 10.00-18.00:  Trials build on the skills learnt in Tasters, and from these workshops the next Ignition Company is chosen.
