The Conservatoire is currently recruiting for an Independent Governor.

About the Conservatoire

The Conservatoire, through its member schools, delivers world leading higher education and vocational training in the performing arts (dance, drama, circus arts and technical theatre).  As members of the Conservatoire, the schools work together to uphold the highest standards in education and training, to collaborate artistically and to share resources, whilst retaining their distinctive identities, traditions and expertise.

The Conservatoire is a higher education institution, a company limited by guarantee, and a registered charity. The Conservatoire’s Board of Governors holds full responsibility for the Conservatoire’s policy, strategy, and performance.  They are the trustees of the charity and directors of the company.  The Board delegates responsibility for the management of the Conservatoire to the Chief Executive Officer.  The Board also agrees the Conservatoire’s strategic plan and approves the annual accounts.

The Conservatoire’s Board of Governors comprises a governor nominated by each of the member schools (six in total), three elected governors (one student and two members of staff), the Chief Executive Officer, and independent governors who shall at all times outnumber all other governors.  There are currently eleven independent governors on the Board.

The role

The Conservatoire is currently recruiting for the role of independent governor.  This is a tremendous opportunity for individuals with relevant experience, credentials and interests to contribute to the Conservatoire’s mission and vision.  It is actively seeking to increase the diversity of its Board, and to attract candidates with interest and leadership experience in one or more of the following:

  • Higher education and knowledge of current good practice in the sector;
  • Financial management, forecasting, planning and/or audit; and
  • Performing arts (or the arts/cultural sector generally)

Independent governors are appointed for an initial term of three years, renewable by mutual agreement up to a limit of nine years.  The Board meets at least four times per year and is supported by a system of committees.  Appointment to a committee is encouraged, but not required.  It is essential that members of the Board devote the necessary time and effort to the role.

The role is unremunerated, but reasonable travel and other expenses incurred while undertaking Board business will be reimbursed.

Process & Timetable

The selection process is being run in-house by the Conservatoire and applications will be viewed by them directly.  If you are interested in the role, please send a brief statement of interest highlighting your relevant experience, accompanied by your CV.  Application materials may be sent to the Clerk, Kathleen Formosa, at kathleen.formosa@cdd.ac.uk.  The deadline for receipt of materials is 5pm on Monday, 14 May 2018.  Successful candidates will be contacted shortly thereafter.

New Adventures has announced three Young Associate Artists to work alongside its creative team in the process of creating a major new production which will celebrate young people. Congratulations to Rambert School graduate Arielle Smith, selected as Young Associate Choreographer, and RADA graduate Ali Hunter, selected as Young Associate Lighting Designer!

Arielle Smith started her training at the Hammond School in Chester and then went on to train at Rambert School. From a young age Arielle has had a passion to choreograph, and it was at the National Youth Ballet founded by Jill Tookey, that Arielle really discovered choreography.

In her final year as a dancer in the company she was the very first recipient of the Nijinska cup for an outstanding female choreographer. She then went on to choreograph several works for the company, Inversion, Athena, Suitesong and T-Symmetry.

Since graduating Arielle has performed with Rambert dance company and gone on to choreograph professionally. Her work Cradle premiered at the Barbican last year as part of a collaborative project between Rambert School and London Schools Symphony Orchestra. She works closely with Rambert School and Legat as a choreographer and teacher and also continues to work for The National Youth Ballet now under the artistic direction of Mikah Smillie.

As an independent choreographer Arielle has produced two works The Thing’s We’ve Done and Lot’s of Varied Expectations (which was featured at Resolution festival at The Place in 2018).

Arielle is passionate about drawing attention to the talent amongst young artists and feels so excited and privileged to join the team at New Adventures on this project that celebrates young people.

Ali Hunter studied Modern Languages before doing the Postgraduate Diploma in Lighting Design and Stage Electrics at RADA. In the past year she has gained the following lighting design credits: Moments/Empty Beds (The Hope Theatre), Woman Before a Glass (Jermyn Street Theatre), Doodle (Waterloo East), Cinderella and the Beanstalk (The Old Market, Brighton), No Place Like Hope (Old Red Lion), Rattlesnake (Live Theatre Newcastle, York Theatre Royal, Soho Theatre), Tenderly (New Wimbledon Studio), Katzenmusik (Royal Court Theatre, 2017), Behind Closed Doors (Drayton Arms Theatre, 2017), Flood (Tristan Bates Theatre, 2017), Dry Room (WSD Taipei, 2017), The Real Estate (Italia Conti), Foreign Body (WoW Festival and UK Tour, 2017), The Sugarman, All in Minor, Black Widow (The Place Resolution Festival, 2017).

The Young Associates will be working with New Adventures’ award-winning creative team Matthew Bourne, Etta Murfitt (Associate Artistic Director), Lez Brotherston (Set & Costume) and Paule Constable (Lighting) on the creation of a new production.

The talent search for the young people to perform in this brand new production alongside New Adventures dancers is now underway.

On Friday 6 April, Leeds City Centre will host ‘COLLIDE’ – a free, multi-site, one-day dance event specifically for boys.

Organised by Northern School of Contemporary Dance (NSCD), with funding from Leeds Inspired, the event features over 30 all-male dance performances happening at 7 different locations across the city centre from 11am-3pm, as well as free participatory workshops.

Members of the public will be able to witness and experience a range of different dance styles on the day, from hip hop to contemporary, and from ballet to street.

Performances will take place every 15-30 minutes at Victoria Leeds, Victoria Quarter, Trinity Leeds, Briggate, Lands Lane, Dortmund Square and Leeds’ award-winning Kirkgate Market. Kirkgate Market will also host a central information hub for the event, where visitors can go to find out more about the day, pick up a map and take part in dance workshops specifically for boys.

NSCD has invited professional dance companies from across the North to perform, including Company Chameleon, Hawk Dance Theatre and Northern Rascals, as well as community dance groups in Leeds including DAZL, Kick off Boys dance project and Northern Ballet Academy.

The event aims to highlight opportunities for male dancers in Leeds, from community dance classes through to professional training.

Tracy Witney, Head of Learning & Participation at Northern School of Contemporary Dance said:

‘‘Leeds is a dance-rich city with many opportunities for children, young people and adults alike to take part in classes within their local community. However we have noticed male dancers are markedly underrepresented, across both our own and our partners’ provision. Most classes for example have a female to male ratio of roughly 80:20. This event highlights the fact that boys dance too, and we want them to know where they can find classes and performance opportunities in the dance styles they may be interested in.’’

This is a key event in the Leeds dance calendar, with NSCD continuing its work as a member of the Leeds Dance Partnership to establish the city as an international centre of excellence for dance.

A highlight of this event will include performances from Leeds’ own boys youth dance group ‘Kick Off’. The group meets once a week for free classes at Leeds City College and is a joint initiative between NSCD, Phoenix Dance Theatre, DAZL and Leeds City College for boys aged between 12 – 18 years.

Rambert School graduate company Retrospect Dance Theatre will premiere a full-length feature film of In Light of Those You Love at Whirled Cinema, London on 12 April.

Founded by graduates Christopher Thomas and Hannah McGlashon, Retrospect Dance Theatre is a unique dance theatre company that brings together multiple art forms to create highly diverse theatrical work.  Over the last year, Christopher and Hannah have been performing excerpts of In Light of Those You Love at events around the UK and at international platforms, and have now developed the piece for film.

Both dancers are also currently performing in Mark Bruce Company’s Macbeth, and Christopher was recently named as one of the inaugural Young Associate Artists at Sadler’s Wells, joining a two year early-career choreographic development programme.

In Light of Those You Love – Film Screening

Retrospect Dance Theatre welcomes you into the home of Katherine and Tom Heath. Watch them wallow in darkness as they discover the truth of what lies beneath their cold exterior. Filmed in the ambient setting of their Asylum home, this couple stuck in a numb state, show the true nature of destruction and psychological agony, abusively exploiting their ability to love but how much can one person take?

As figures merge in and out of the darkness, perceptions of reality are blurred leaving human shells writhing in a state of insanity. Katherine and Tom are stuck wondering how everything went so wrong and question why their once perfect life now haunts their nightmares.

Screening Date: 12 April 2018
Location: Whirled Cinema, London, SE24 0HN
Time: 7:30pm

Tickets are available at Eventbrite.
