THE First Utility Magic Weekend consists of seven mouth-watering games across two fascinating days of Rugby League, and we need one magic dance squad to entertain tens of thousands of Rugby League fans.
The Magic Weekend, held on the weekend of May 17-18, is a festival of the best talent that Rugby League has to offer and is one of the most highly-anticipated events on the sport’s calendar each season.
On Saturday April 12, women aged 16-and-over are invited to attend an open audition at Yorkshire Dance in Leeds to perform at the event. Dancers who perform within Rugby League at present are especially encouraged to attend.
During the audition, dancers will be taught a short routine that will then be performed in groups.
In addition, dancers will also be invited to perform a pre-prepared solo or group piece. This performance should last a minimum of one minute if solo or two minutes if in a group and music for this part of the audition should be supplied via your own iPod or iPhone.
Those who apple must be physically fit and have excellent dancing ability and communication skills.
We are looking for dancers who can engage with a crowd and have experience of promotional dance work. It is also preferable for applicants to have experience of performing in front of large audiences.
Those who attend should wear suitable dance attire (baggy clothing is not acceptable). All clothing must be tight-fitting.
