We are delighted to announce the full list of companies participating in our Professional Placement Scheme (PPS) in 2021/22.
Applications are now open to join the scheme. Undertake extensive professional development and refine your performance skills, as a member of an established professional dance company:
Tanzmainz (apply by 9am, 23November 2020)
James Wilton Dance - new for 2021
Jasmin Vardimon Company - new for 2021 (open to 2020 graduates or earlier, only)
Scottish Dance Theatre - new for 2021
This postgraduate pathway is open to graduates of two/three year dance training programmes at higher education level, who would therefore usually be 21+ years of age, or to dance artists with some professional experience.
Please note: those who are interested in a placement with Tanzmainz must apply by the earlier deadline of midday, Sunday 15 November 2020.
Due to Visa restrictions, students outside the UK are only eligible to apply for a placement with Phoenix Dance Theatre in Leeds.
This year we are delighted to increase the number of companies on board, welcoming Scottish Dance Theatre, Jasmin Vardimon Company and James Wilton Dance to the scheme. As companies around the world adapt to the restrictions of the pandemic, developing resilience and new ways of engaging audiences, I am thrilled to be leading a course that enables dancers to continue to gain real-world professional experience, whatever form that may take.
The breadth of work, styles and focus on the list is exciting, and offers dancers a great deal of choice. We continue to recruit the very best of today’s emerging talent, and are excited, as are the companies, to see this year’s applications.
