Neon Dance are seeking female and male dancers this Autumn. Neon Dance creates work for the stage and screen. Since 2004, we have produced a portfolio of bold, playful and risk-taking projects that ignite the public imagination.

Artistically led by Adrienne Hart, our work appears in diverse spaces across the UK - from theatres, festivals and galleries (The Intention (2012), Falling from Trees (2010)) to urban and digital space (Stages (2013), Archived'it (2011)). Collaboration is at the heart of our practice and we work across art form and alongside world-class artists on projects that often engage with contemporary science.

Our growing reputation as a bold and experimental company has helped us secure strong partnerships with Pavilion Dance South West (Dream Artist 2015-17), Sound and Music (Audience Lab 2015-16) and Sadler's Wells (Adrienne Hart, Summer University 2015-18).
