About the application process:
Click the button above to be taken to the application form. Upon receipt of your application, you will be sent a video of a combination from the dance to learn - you are required to submit a video of you executing this as your audition video. You have seven days to return your video from the date it is sent to you. Please note that any applications without an audition video will be considered invalid. Videos returned any later than 7 days after your receipt will void your application. If you have any problems in submitting your application, please get in touch. Thanks for your understanding!
The Juniper Project intensive is more than just learning a dance - participants get the opportunity to delve into the creative process behind the choreography, learn about staging, movement quality, technique and stylisation, musicality and kinaesthetic learning capabilities. On top of all of this growth potential, the intensive culminates in a performance of the piece with Alexis at Infusion Emporium 7!
This intensive is designed for dancers of intermediate/advanced level - a minimum of 3 years of regular Tribal Fusion training is highly recommended. Please make a fair assessment of your experience level before booking, and read the requirements of participants to ensure you are able to fully commit to this project. The intensive is exactly that, and so please be aware of the commitment required to make it happen before you apply.
* Before the intensive weekend you will receive video breakdowns of sections of the choreography to learn in advance of the weekend.
* During the 2 day intensive, we delve more deeply into the choreography and shape it ready for performance - learn any sections of the dance that were not sent to you ahead of time, stage the piece with your fellow dancers, and work through movement quality and dynamics to bring the piece to life. Please be prepared for a dress rehearsal, in costume, during Day 2.
* After the intensive you are expected to continue working with the material in your own time.
* The finished product - performing the piece in the gala show at Alexis' festival Infusion Emporium on 27th or 28th October 2017.
Online support included
We'll have a secret Facebook group that we'll use to share ideas, get to know your dance colleagues, ask questions, share experiences and generally get to grips with stuff ahead of the intensive. It's a great place to get to know each other and share your excitement about the project.
The really important stuff
Please be respectful of the level required before signing up. You should be able to retain choreography, be comfortable with executing the fundamental movements of Tribal Fusion and be confident holding your own in a performance setting.
Be sure that you have the spare time to dedicate to working outside of the intensive.
You must be able to take constructive criticism and feedback on your technique and performance, and be able to put this into practice straight away.
You must be available on both the intensive weekend and on show day to participate.
You are required to invest time/money into creating a cohesive company costume. We will aim to use as much of your own existing costuming as possible, but please understand that you might be required to create something that fits the overall vision of the piece. I aim to keep costuming investment financially as limited as possible. However you are expected to have a professional looking costume - leggings and a tank top will not cut it!
If selected, please do not perform to the music for the project or any part of the choreography in advance of the final performance, and do not share any instructional videos or details of the project outside of the group.
Applications will be open from 31st March until 30th April 2017.
You will be notified of the success of your submission and audition video shortly after the end date for applications.
Videos will be made available in May/June, and you will be added to the secret group upon receipt of your payment.
This weekend will focus on getting to grips with the choreography, drilling tricky sections and staging the group for the performance. This will be an intensive weekend so please come well rested and prepared to dance all day. Colton Hills is not so close to shops and restaurants, so please bring food with you for lunch and snacks. Please bring all costuming, make up and jewellery/accessories with you for the dress rehearsal on Sunday. We will take a few promotional shots and use this day as an opportunity to make a digital record of what we have created.
