Auditions | Pilot EDC Youth Ensemble 

Expressions of Interest Due May 25th

Expressions Dance Company (EDC) have announced they are piloting a new Youth Dance Ensemble as part of their commitment to support the next generation of Queensland’s dance artists.

Designed for ages 14 – 18, the EDC Youth Ensemble will focus on artistry, self-creation, refining contemporary techniques and choreography throughout a 8-week long program concluding with an open showing to family and friends.

Facilitated by ex-EDC dancer Riannon McLean, participants will be nurtured and empowered to learn in a safe and insightful environment. Throughout the program guest teachers and choreographers will include the EDC ensemble and respected dance industry professionals.

The program will focus on the versatility, unique talent and individualism of each dancer to build confidence, encourage commitment and embrace the experience of working together as an ensemble.

As the EDC Youth Ensemble will be in its initial pilot stage in 2018, participants will have the unique opportunity to shape the future of this exciting youth program. It is our vision to create a program that enriches and enchances existing skills and responds to the needs of young artists at this formative stage of their creative lives.
