25 July – 19 August 2016
Would you like to dance with the only dance company from Africa selected to be part of the Commonwealth Youth Dance Festival at Glasgow? Would you like to spend one month dancing in Namibia? Would you like to work with an NGO that harnesses dance and other arts to engage, inform and empower young people to tackle social issues?
We are seeking 6 outstanding, self-motivated and energetic dance students or graduates with a desire to experience dance in a development context. You will be working with members of the OYO Dance Troupe to create a piece that will be performed to reach learners and members of the public. The piece will directly tackle a social issue that is pertinent to the moment and the community. We are looking for talented individuals who have the skills to work creatively and to a tight deadline, who are vibrant, reliable performers, comfortable as role models, confident at building new relationships, and ready to adapt quickly to new people in a new culture.
On this Dance Experience with OYO, there will be 3 weeks of full-day rehearsals in Windhoek to exchange skills and create the new piece, immediately followed by performances. For further details, costs, and to apply, please read the attached information document or email OYOinternship@gmail.com , or call 00264 61 254 915 to speak with the Director. http://www.ombetja.org/
