Are you aged between 12 and 17 years and have what it takes to dance, choreograph, direct a film, sing, make music or even beat box?

If so, then Ludus Dance wants to hear from you.

The Lancaster dance centre is looking for young performers in and around the district to audition for its Ludus In the Spotlight Group.

Audtions are at the Ludus Dance studios, the Assembly Rooms, King Street, between 5pm and 6pm next Monday (April 29).

The Ludus In the Spotlight group will meet once a week for 10 weeks in an exciting project where its multi-talented members will create a piece for public performance.

Experienced performer Helen Gould, who has a background in musical theatre and music, will lead the project. Founded in 1975, Ludus Dance aims to inspire people to get involved in dance.

The organisation runs community projects, a regular programme of dance classes in its King Street studio and offers training and advice, working with all ages, people with special needs, youth groups and elders in residential care, amongst others.

Ludus also runs the Ludus Youth Dance Company, the North West’s flagship youth dance company.

Last year Ludus was involved in BIG Dance, a national event aiming to get five million people dancing in the UK.

Four hundred dancers from Lancashire performed at a mass dance event at the Preston Guild as part of the Olympic Torch Relay.

Group sessions for Ludus In The Spotlight will run on Mondays from 6pm to 8pm. The cost is £60, payable in two instalments. Places can be booked by calling 01524 35936.
