Australasian Dance Collective’s Youth Ensemble 2021
Applications Now Open
2019 was the inaugural year for the Australasian Dance Collective (ADC) Youth Ensemble. This year the collective had an intake of 30 talented dancers aged 15-18 years. They are now seeking applicants for the 2021 ensemble.
The Youth Ensemble comprises of young like-minded individuals who share the same passions and creative pathways. Over three terms Youth Ensemble Director Riannon McLean will lead a program that will enhance young dancers’ learning by offering each ensemble member a strong focus on dance artistry and performance as well as the development of choreographic skills, techniques and investigative practice for partnering techniques.
Creativity, growth and the pursuit of artistic individualism are at the forefront of Australasian Dance Collective’s Youth Ensemble program ⏤ they aim to enrich, inspire and support the young dancers of our community. Instilling a strong sense of self and achievement, our young artists are nurtured and supported to build upon a strong foundation to become diverse arts practitioners.
Developed alongside the ADC main company calendar, Youth Ensemble members benefit from direct access to the company dancers and staff. The program culminates into two performance seasons as part of their 2021 program, where their Youth Ensemble collaborate directly with company dancers, as well as have the opportunity to create, facilitate and produce their very own body of work.
The program takes place on Wednesdays (5:30pm – 8pm) and Sundays (12-4pm) throughout Terms 1, 2 and 3. For further information about the program visit australasiandancecollective.com/youthensemble-eoi-2021
