Junior Artist Program

From student to Professional

Junior Artist Program

The Junior Artist program has been designed specifically for artists making the transition from young dancers to professional artists. The program covers all facets required for the Junior Artist to be best prepared to enter the performing arts industry. The Junior Artists work with professional dancers and creative teams in an environment that is professional, sharing and encourages contributions to the creative process.

There are many reasons that the transition from young artist to professional can be a make or break moment for a young dancer and during the two-year development of this program one phrase continued to resurface… ‘lack of opportunity’
Being a professional is not just about technique or physical preparedness it requires forward thinking, business awareness and strategy development. A dancer/creative needs to understand themselves as an entity, a portfolio with multiple assets and earning potential, that once better understood allows the artist to effectively harness their career opportunities. The Junior Artist Program has been designed by artists who continue to work at the peak of their industry with the support of researchers with an acute awareness of graduate programs within and outside of artistic practice.
