Join Pivot’s Opening Group Number under the choreography and direction of Zoë (@zoe_danceartist). We’ll cook up a fun choreography that is sure to be a crowd-pleaser! Whether you are a new performer who’d like to test the waters without having to worry about choreography, or an experienced performer that wants to try performing in a team…everyone is welcome! Expect some sassy dance moves, sexy floorwork, and potentially some chair dance too!

Group Ethos & Rules
Be supportive and kind to all group members. Socialising and group bonding is very much encouraged!

 Please check your schedules and ensure that you are available to attend all rehearsals. The minimum requirement is attending at least the first 5 rehearsals (dates to be confirmed by 21st May 2024). However, we understand that life happens, and in the event you
can no longer make a rehearsal, please do reach out to Zoë and she will be happy to work on accommodations.


 Have fun!

Benefits of being a part of the Opening Number

Guidance on Performance Technique, movement quality and choreographic devices (which may come in handy in choreographing your own amazing performances in future!)

out of choreographing a routine, it was perfect! And her choreos had us feeling good

about the show & venue

The venue will be at Old Dr Bells Baths, Great Junction Street, Edinburgh, EH6 5JB

there will be 1 x AGM Podium Pole which is 45mm diameter and 300cm in height. The pole can be either spin or static (and easily changed mid performance should you wish) and this will be stage right. The podium pole will be weighed down with 50kg stabalising ballasts. The podium pole will be approximately 6.4cm off the ground allowing for easy transitions on and off. We will have atmospheric lighting to illuminate your performance and more information will be available on options at a later date.

There is a bathroom with lots of mirrors (including full length), and a cafe which will act as our Green Room for you to store your items and warm up in. Please note PPS nor Old Doctor Bells Baths hold no responsibility for any loss/ damage/ theft of your own items.

There is also a bar on the night. Please do not drink before performing.

The venue will be available for you to get ready & mark out your routine between 12pm and 5pm on the day; you can come and go as you please. there will be a performer & volunteer brief at pm before doors open at 5:30pm which is mandatory.

all performer fees are wholly non-refundable or transferable to another show. this is because our venue deposit is partially covered by your fee, as well as insurance & photography.

if performing as a doubles/ small group only one of you will need to purchase a performer slot, and email me to let me know who is joining you so i can send out a payment link to your doubles partner/ group members for them to confirm their space with payment.

should you no longer be able to be a performer please drop me an email as soon as possible. life happens & no one will be mad! please just keep communication open.

please tell your friends & family to get their tickets early! 

you can use whatever props you like other than liquids / glitter / fire / confetti (flower petals okay). if you're unsure just ask. wear anything you like other than anything that may scratch & damage the poles, and due to the licensing of the venue, no nips or flaps (pasties okay).

this will be an over 18+ event so you are permitted to use any music/ theme but anything that is racist/ homophobic/ sexist/ whorophobic/ transphobic/ islamophobic / fatphobic will not be permitted.

it is important we respect the venue as best we can. this includes cleaning up your litter & mess when leaving and keeping it as tidy as possible. please respect any neighbours when leaving the venue.
