With a troupe of 23 excellent all round female dancers, we have 18 on-stage tracks plus 5 swings. Rotation of dancers, and days off are handled by our Dance Captain. Dance styles are varied and have range from Irish to Parisian Chic, Can-Can to Skins Work, to Musical Theatre, etc.
All our artistes are versatile, with a positive attitude. They are required to wear full costume and full skins. Once performances start there are two a day, seven days a week. Given the frequency of performances, they have to know their stamina and how to pace themselves accordingly, though we schedule one day off every 8-10 days.
All cast members live locally for the duration usually in shared holiday accommodation. Subsistence is included in the fee to cover this. Travel is by car, and those without have to make arrangements with drivers in the cast. Payment is made in several installments, each one of which must be invoiced for.
The job is hugely enjoyable - you will be performing to capacity audiences, whilst staying in a beautiful part of the world, less than 15 minutes from the coast in North Norfolk.
We at Thursford are committed to having a diverse range of skills, experience and talent working with us both front and backstage, and as such we’re keen for applicants from under-represented groups to apply; which include those from minority ethnic groups, lower socio-economic groups, the LGBTQ+ community and different backgrounds, to ensure we are truly representative of all.
