Friday 6th January 2017, 10:12am Apprenticeship Placement Companies Announced for MA Contemporary Dance Performance (PAS)

Ahead of the closing date for applications this weekend, we are delighted to announce the companies who will be working with our MA (PAS) students from September 2017 are;

This one-year,  full-time programme provides an opportunity for students to undertake extensive professional development and refine their skills as a performer, whilst being an apprentice with a professional dance company.

The distinctiveness of this programme lies in the offer of a work placement with a professional dance company of between five and nine months.

As Postgraduate Apprentices, students work alongside professional dancers at their chosen host company, experiencing the creation, rehearsal, production and touring of a professional performance programme or project, including any related education and community outreach work. Whilst on their placement, students are supported by a tutor at NSCD.

The placement experience is supplemented by a wide range of technical and creative work delivered at NSCD, involving performance platforms, classes with VERVE and research-based activities. Crucially, apprentices develop an understanding of the wider skills required of a professional dance artist, through small-scale projects, introductions to local networks and awareness of a variety of activities such as workshop teaching and project management.

The closing date for applications for the programme is Sunday 8th January with auditions held at NSCD next week. Click to apply and choose your audition slot.
