Lion Heart Dance Company is excited to open applications for our Youth Company for 2023 - an opportunity for a select group of promising dancers to train and perform at an elite level.
Designed to support studios in developing high-potential emerging talent - without taking away from their regular training or overburdening them with commitments - the dancers in the Youth Company will take part in a transformative and exciting year-long program. With a focus on "high intensity, low frequency" training, the dancers will participate in monthly intensives on a Sunday where they will undertake workshops with company artists and teachers, learn repertoire and be challenged to develop as artists alongside the adult company. In term 3, the Youth Company will perform in their own full length work as part of the adult company season.
This program has been specifically designed to provide a unique opportunity for additional growth that seeks to partner with the phenomenal studios of Melbourne, who provide essential training and education for young dancers, rather than competing for these young dancers' time. With competitions, concerts, academic studies and exams, there is already so much being asked of our young talent; the Lion Heart Youth Company will meet monthly for a full day to train with laser-focussed intent and at a very high level.
Please note: successful applicants will be asked to gain permission from their current studio director to participate. Applicants must not already be committed to another on-going external training program that may clash or cause them to miss out on sessions.
