Parris Goebel is beginning work on her latest project, helping Sir Elton John create music videos for some of his biggest hits. 

The project was announced in early December when Goebel was brought onto Sir Elton's video judging panel, and she is now helping recruit talent for the first clip. 

Speaking to Seven Sharp when her involvement was announced, Goebel said she could put her moves to any of Sir Elton's hits saying: "As a dancer, I feel...I can see movement to anything, fast or slow. I think anything can be done". 

But for now, she and a panel of judges are helping Sir Elton find a director to put together a clip for his hit Bennie and the Jets. 

Goebel's specifically looking for the "freshest and most unique dance video - so dancers, get to work". 

Her advice for hopefuls?

"For me, I listen to eh music and I let it speak to my imagination - what colours do I see, what clothes do I see, what moves do I see? What's the energy, what's the vibe? Once I have an idea I just go for it," she says.

"Most importantly: make it timeless."

Applications will be accepted from anyone, anywhere. If you're keen to work with New Zealand's hottest choreographer and one of the world's biggest musical legends, head here to apply before January 23.
