DANCE IMMERSION PROGRAM

In tandem with the creative synergy of ARTS FISSION, the 2-year apprenticeship program is designed to develop the capabilities of a new generation of dancers with a different dance profile. The scheme aims to enable recent dance graduates to go beyond generic technical training and adopt a broad-based learning approach that works across traditional discipline boundaries.

 

The apprentices are given opportunities to discover and develop their full capacities under master mentorship.  The goal is to hone their craft into a rigorous discipline that can navigate the complexities of today's creative world and become a thinking dance artist.  Basic monthly stipend is provided for successful candidates.

 

Akin to post-graduate program, the  Arts Fission 2-year Dance Immersion Program will introduce dance entrants through project-theme learning based on the company's current creative and research works.  The non-linear way of dance practice provides possibilities for fresh graduates to discover other connecting components and enables them to arrive at the larger perspective of multi-disciplinary practice in professional dancing of the new millennium.
