Southbank Centre are looking for an enthusiastic, skilled and experienced dance assistant to support their Winter Jam project on Saturday 13 and Sunday 14 December.  This is a great opportunity for you toget involved, develop your experience, have fun and add to your CV!

 Winter Jam is an intensive weekend of festive singing and dancing at the Southbank Centre.  Southbank Centre will be working with a group of Winter Jammers who will participate in fun and free workshop sessions to have fun, learn and perform. Winter Jammers will all be adults with and without previous dance experience.  The dance sessions will be led by the brilliant Hagit Yakira.

 The project is a collaborative Voicelab and dance project relating to Southbank Centre’s Winter Festival theme of alternative giving. Voicelab is Southbank Centre's vocal initiative, inviting everyone to explore their voice and participate in festivals, workshops and performances throughout the year. This project extends beyond singing, to include adult dancers interested in creating and learning contemporary dance, regardless of their experience or ability.
