Lion Heart Company Training
Lion Heart Dance Company will also be selecting dancers to participate in their Company Training Program (CTP) at this audition.
In 2016 the company launched their own training program to give professional dancers an ongoing and supportive environment to maintain their dance practice. This group of dancers are invited to join company members in two free classes per week. This group is given various opportunities to collaborate, create and perform together. Dancers who are currently a part of CTP have performed for Lion Heart Dance Company at UNDRGRND, the World Convention of Public Health and have also created video content. This program has also proved to be a good environment for dancers to network, collaborate and pursue their own projects.
Dancers can express their interest in this program via the online application form for The Scarlet Trace audition.
Any other questions or queries can be sent to firstname.lastname@example.org.
