The Board of Dance City is looking to appoint new Board Members to provide inspirational leadership and strategic vision to take the charitable organisation onto its next stage of development. New Board Members will help us to ensure a sustainable business model that successfully serves our audiences, communities and stakeholders for decades to come.

Dance City is a charity and its main objective is that of promoting, maintaining, improving and educating by the encouragement of the arts. We primarily focus on dance, but touch on drama and music and many other artforms too.

These are voluntary roles and no financial remuneration is offered to any board member beyond reasonable travel expenses.

Time Commitment:

Minimum of four board meetings per year (usually late afternoon in Newcastle or on Zoom).

Annual Board Away Day.

Occasional individual meetings with Executive team or Chair.

Sub-committee meetings as required (at least quarterly)

Attendance at least two Dance City events per year.

The overall time commitment is estimated at 1-2 days per quarter.

Application process:

You are invited to apply by sending your CV together with a description of what you feel you can contribute, including areas of specialism you can bring to the Board and examples of how you meet the requirements of the role.

Your application can be in written, video or sound recording format. Please also include details of any business or other interests which might give rise to conflicts of interest, and how you would address this should your application be successful, plus any other information, including other board or advisory roles, that you think will help the panel.

There is an initial deadline for applications of 31 January 2021. However please send an application beyond that date as we are recruiting Board Members on an ongoing basis throughout 2021.

If you have any access requirements or need support with the application process, please contact Phil Douglas at Dance City:

We actively encourage applications from who self-identify as black, Asian, ethnically diverse, lesbian, gay, bisexual, transgender, queer, neurodiverse, disabled. We also welcome applications from people under 30 years of age.
