Recent Dance Graduate Programme
📣 Application for the Recent Dance Graduate Programme 2020/2021 are now open. 📣 For more information on this years programme and how to apply visit here.
Barrowland Ballet and The Work Room are active in nurturing a thriving and diverse ecology of dance in Scotland. Together, we have launched the Recent Dance Graduate programme, with the aim of supporting emerging dance artists make the transition from training and navigate the early stages of their careers in Scotland. Each year we will support 3-4 recent dance graduates by providing a package of support.
With COVID-19, we are shifting and adapting many aspects of our programme for 2020/21. There are many uncertainties around what we will deliver face-to-face and what will be online the year ahead. However, we can commit to the selected graduates receiving:
- – One year of free membership to The Work Room & access to their membership programme;
- – Individual mentoring session with Natasha Gilmore (Artistic Director & choreographer of Barrowland Ballet) and/ or Anita Clark (Director of The Work Room);
- – Matching with a professional ‘buddy’ from the independent dance scene in Scotland;
- – Shadowing opportunities with Barrowland Ballet (in the current year, this has included during the creation of new production, creative programmes with schools and with Wolf Pack, our intergenerational classes)
We also envisage participation in our regular professional contemporary dance classes, which run weekly in Glasgow, as a key part of the Dance Graduate programme. These are currently on hold, but we will be resuming these when it is safe to do so. They usually take place on Thursday and Friday mornings, 9.30 – 10.45am.
