Dance Artist Development Program
Do you want to create your own creative voice as a dancer and/or choreographer? If yes, then the Dance Artist Development Program is the professional program for you!
This program is suitable for dancers and choreographers who want to develop their creative voice and practice to become the artist they intent to be, within a learning and supportive environment.
Choreographic Research Program
The purpose of the DiA Choreographic Research program is to capture the vision of the next generation of dance artists. This program is for students with an established background in choreography. It has proved particularly fruitful for mature students who have been choreographing for some time and wish to take time to reflect on their work within a supportive environment. Students will create original works that foster cross-fertilization between choreography and other artistic disciplines.
