Only 12 participants will be selected to participate to the residency’s program.

Residency
The training (2 x 30 days) will be composed of two parts:

the theoretical part, on the one
hand, will include warming up techniques, study of the company’s recent choreography
and repertoire, exchanges with artistic directors and members of the company, two
public performances, and workshops on the topic of “management”.

The practical part,
on the other hand, enables the young dancers to discover everyday working life of two
different companies with their respective artistic identity, cultural context, creative
repertoire and functional structure. Training participants will discover tools to manage
real life situations and will develop entrepreneurship skills adapted to the specific needs
of the labour market in the world of dance.

“Start for Dance” offers candidates an opportunity to increase their employability and to
strengthen their professional development. Throughout the whole training period,
participants will be supported by experts, trainers, and pedagogues from the world of
dance and the business management sector.
Moreover, project partners will gather and exchange experience, knowledge and best
practice and hopefully, in the end, employ new dancers for their companies.

1° Work phase in Eupen, Compagnie Irene K – Belgium: 9 April – 18 May 2018
2° Work phase in Siena, Compagnia Francesca Selva – Italy: 22 May – 16 June 2018
