We are offering a week-long summer school for 11-18 year-olds who want to experience life as part of a professional dance company and learn from industry professionals. NeXt Gen Youth will develop dancers versatility, professionalism, confidence and artistry.
Each morning will start with a company class followed by a variety of professional masterclasses and choreographic practice. The week will culminate in a performance where dancers will present original commissions and showcase their talent.
Each day will focus on a different theme, offering dancers a variety of experience in technique classes, creative workshops, fitness & conditioning, professional practice and performance. The week also includes a professional photoshoot with a headshot and dance photographs to take away at the end of the week. This is a special opportunity to spend a week with like-minded dancers as well as learning from professional artists, choreographers and practitioners.
