Whether it's your headshots, your showreel or voice reel, your CV, or even your Spotlight profile, set time aside this month, and give it the update it needs!

6) MEMBER HIGHLIGHT
This month we celebrate Sophie Hirst! Sophie is not only an incredibly dedicated family member, she is a phenomenal artist, a wonderful yoga instructor, and a true definition of our mantra, 'find the fun'. WE LOVE YOU SOPHIE!
7) FACULTY SPOTLIGHT
This month, we celebrate Brian Gillespie of B-Hybrid Dance. He has built a beautiful home for contemporary artists in this city, and continues to host creative opportunities for anyone to get involved in. To learn more about his work and his collective, visit @bhybriddance.

Zoom links will be sent out shortly.
9) MINDSET & BUSINESS TRAINING
Virtual Masterclass with North Artist Management
Their books are currently open for dancer submissions!
Tuesday 16 February at 18:30 GMT
10) EXTERNAL EVENT
Each month, we will be working hard to offer you one additional external event for you to partake in if you wish. This class will be in addition to your membership so will have an additional fee, but it is not mandatory and will likely include a significant HOJ discount. This month we are providing a Fakedown Masterclass, a virtual 'fake audition' masterclass on how to successfully audition over zoom. Please visit our Facebook Group to vote on your preferred date for this workshop, and stay tuned for more details!
That's it that's all people! Here's our quote for the month:
"There's no such thing as a starving artist. There is such thing as an artist who doesn't believe they deserve to be paid well for something they love."
LET'S GO FEBRUARY.
THIS IS HOW WE DO IT
