Residency Overview

The Cohan Collective is looking for professional dancers who are interested in working creatively with choreographers, composers and musicians.  You will have to be able to work in a variety of different styles of dance, take information and direction quickly and be skilled at collaboration and improvisation.  You will be required to attend all morning classes that will be in contemporary and ballet techniques.  As we are looking for experienced dancers, we cannot accept submissions from students, including those graduating in 2020. Please note: We will not be able to respond to any enquiries from students and student applications will not be considered.

Using the online application form please submit your CV and links to examples of your work (Vimeo, Youtube or wetransfer links are all fine).  Links should not be password protected and you must be clearly seen in any group work.  We will not be able to consider any applications without these requirements.

If you are applying from outside the UK and have a working visa you are able to apply.  We do not provide support to attain working visas. Please note: When applying from outside the UK, travel to the UK is not supported.  Only travel costs within the UK will be honoured.
