Professional Dance Theatre Intensive for Years 10 – 12 in July

Applications Close May 10

INCITE Youth is contemporary dance company Force Majeure’s professional dance theatre program for students in years 10 to 12. This program has been developed by Artistic Director, Danielle Micich, in consultation with education experts across NSW

INCITE Youth offers a rare opportunity for students to work with one of Australia’s leading dance theatre organisations, creating professional pathways for young people into the dance industry. The program will run throughout the July 2019 school holidays, presented in partnership with Carriageworks and supported by Create NSW.

This is a new pilot program offered by Force Majeure and complements their existing INCITE Masterclasses and INCITE Intensive programs aimed at professional dance makers. Read our article on this year’s INCITE Intensive here.

After many years of experience as a maker, performer and mentor, Danielle Micich has spent the last four years developing an extensive industry-leading professional training program – INCITE. The program provides artists with the requisite tools to maintain their practice and hone their creation process as dance theatre makers. INCITE Youth is an exciting new addition to this program, providing HSC students the access industry standard training that directly links to their high school studies.

The one-week intensive program will focus on the following tasks:
• In-depth research of the students’ chosen stimuli 
• Understanding how to create improvisation tasks
• Critical thinking around composition of their solos, including choreographic principles and choreographic structures
• Development of motif and phrase
• Development of personal style

INCITE Youth is best suited for students that have:
• An interest in choreography and creation
• Potential to score highly in composition rather than performance
• An interesting and unique movement style

Applications will be assessed on a creative writing task or video response. For the 2019 pilot year, we also invite teachers to encourage suitable students to apply. Limited places available.
