APPRENTICESHIP CO. This apprenticeship aims to: • Build highly skilled, employable performers who are confident

• Feed the Hip Hop ecology, sustaining the high quality of work by current makers
Why There is an essential gap in the industry where often those underrepresented and from lower economic backgrounds fall short and get deprived from engaging in high quality artistic opportunities to progress a career in the arts.

There is a persistent lack of diversity and inclusivity in cultural organisations, leadership, governance, workforce and audience, due to the lack of understanding and catering of creative opportunities, which is why it is difficult to curate opportunities that can cater to also include those from different backgrounds.
Continuing Just Us Dance Theatre’s responsive style of working they have created the first UK Hip Hop apprenticeship dance company. This will create an access route specifically for young black and ethnic minorities or dancers from low economic backgrounds and provide an alternative pathway into the professional sector.
Being part of this annually ran company will include:

• A weekly wage
• Morning classes in a variety of styles (Hip Hop styles and non- dance practices including capoeira and Brazilian Jiu Jitsu)
• Workshops to equip them with knowledge on how to sustain a self-employed career (including self-care sessions for the body and mind)
• Rehearsals to create a new piece of work, that will have a national tour
