Callout: dancers aged 16-25 needed to perform in Atlantik 1050

The Jaialdia Mix

Atlantik 1050 is an exciting new FREE project for young people aged between 16 – 25 years old. We are looking for a group of young people with some experience or an interest in traditional dance to be involved in a collaborative project with the Basque Country. You will participate in 15 sessions from June to September, working with a professional choreographer and musician to combine Basque and Scottish traditions in a contemporary way. This exciting new dance to original music will be performed in the Edinburgh Fringe Festival in August and then at the ‘Atlantikaldia’ Festival in the Basque Country in September 2019.

This international project is a unique cultural dance experience. The selected young people will visit, rehearse, socialise and perform together, creating a pop-up community of talented young dancers from two northern cultures sharing their indigenous music and dance.

If you are interested in being part of Atlantik 1050, please contact: emmasmith@dancebase.co.uk to request an enquiry form, which will include more information about the project.

Applicants will be invited to attend a workshop audition at Dance Base on Saturday 15 June, from 1-5pm.

The deadline for applications is Monday 10 June at 1pm.
