Get Dancing… Creative Team Brief

A Showtown and LeftCoast co-commission

Scope of works for Creative Team for Get Dancing

We are looking to appoint a creative team who will lead on the development of a new participatory dance project for Blackpool with an integrated digital strand.

This is an ambitious and experimental project and we are looking for artists with a contagious passion for their artform and experience in delivering large scale work.

 In this team we have opportunities for:

  1. Creative Lead with a specialism in dance
  2. Digital Artist
  3. Musician/ composer

Please note: We are open to individuals applying for one of the roles above. We are open to companies/organisations applying for all three. We are open to a group of collaborators applying together for all three.

Get Dancing is an ambitious creative proposal to develop a new dance for Blackpool. Inspired by a long tradition of creating new novelty dances in Blackpool the work will seek to bring together local, national and international communities to inspire people to dance together culminating in a performance in October 2021.

This is an exciting and far reaching project that will bring different communities of people together to celebrate Blackpool’s international influence in popular entertainment.
