Hofesh Shechter Company is offering an opportunity for eight outstanding young dancers (18-25 years old) who can demonstrate high levels of commitment, enthusiasm for Hofesh Shechter’s work and exceptional talent to join our apprentice programme, Shechter II.


This is an exciting offer for dancers at the start of their promising careers to work with Hofesh on a programme which will tour both in the UK and internationally, as well as opportunities to work with our main company. There will also be involvement with the delivery of our wide and varied participation programme.


Fixed Term – 11 months (Start date: 2nd January 2018)

Apprentice Dancers will be paid an apprentice salary of £250 per week


Auditions will be held in London and are allocated on a first come, first served basis:

  • UK Based Dancers: 25th August 2017
  • Internationally Based Dancers: 26th August 2017


All dancers should be available for the full length of the contract and for the recall audition (if selected) which will be held on 27th August 2017. Booking closes on 13th August.

For full details, please see the Apprentice Programme Audition Pack on our website:

Dancers must be eligible to live and work in the UK in order to participate in this programme, as regrettably we cannot provide work permits for apprentices.
