Are you a dancer looking for the perfect company to join? Sibikwa Arts Dance Company is looking for two exciting dancers and one intern to complete their company.

The Dance Company was established in 2008. It is made up of an eclectic group of dancers, who are charismatic and passionate about their craft. They perform anything from traditional Indlamu and Tswana dance to an African infused Japanese dance form, Butoh.

The company has a well established community arts and education dance programme. The dancers visit schools demonstrating aspects of South African dance and provide teachers with support material.

“We seek young ambitious dancers who have an interest in developing the community within the industry and a high teaching interest, plus further more people who can explore the signature of Sibikwa in our productions of 2012 and years to come,” says the Sibikwa Arts Dance Company's Yuhl Headman.

“The Dance Company is poised for another active year in 2012. We are currently putting all our plans in place for the forthcoming year, as in hosting the Motsamai community dance festival, an education programme with schools in the Ekurhuleni area and a prison programme,” says Headman.

If this sounds like the perfect position for you, and you have at least one year professional dance experience, shake a leg and submit a CV that details your training and relevant production experience to before January 5.

Auditions will be held on January 11 and 12 at the Sibikwa Community Arts Centre on the corner of Liverpool and Bolton roads in Benoni.

Dancers who wish to audition should prepare a three-minute solo dance piece, be able to teach a short combination that illustrates their signature style as dancers/choreographers, and be prepared for an interview on the second day of auditions. The audition process will extend over two days commencing at 10h00 on both days.
