How is it different?
The Mentorship Program differs from the other DiA certificate programs offered, in that it is designed purely to address the needs of the individual artist. Technique schedule and classes are tailored to the individual dancer by the program director. With an emphasis on personal attention and development, the Mentorship Program provides dancers with a better understanding of one’s own creativity and artistry. This program’s intensive approach will have positive effects on a dancer’s confidence and abilities so each individual can successfully move forward with their career in the dance industry.
What are the values of art disciplines, such as dance, music, visual art, literature and theatre, in the world? When is there coherence between these disciplines and what connects them? When is it meaningful for the different art disciplines to interact and when is this not meaningful? In other words, what are the boundaries for art disciplines to strengthen each other? How can dancers and visual artists work together in a productive way? How does music and literature invigorate each other? When is an interdisciplinary art project fulfilling its artistic goals and how do you structure such a project?
During the Dance in Art (DiA) Mentorship Research Training Program, the dancers will get the chance to do in depth research regarding these questions. They will become critically engaged with the complex cultural and social contexts of art disciplines, furthering their own artistic development. The research will also allow dancers to broaden their current practical experience. With the training program that DiA has to offer, dancers will deepen their knowledge in a number of sources contiguous with the art of dance, such as philosophy, visual arts, music and literature.
