Skills learned across the three main focus areas of Technique, Creativity and Performance will support students’ development across all areas of contemporary dance, including improvisation, movement and choreography. Through this program, students will also have access to some of the best teachers, choreographers and dance practitioners in the industry, in addition to accessing behind-the-scenes opportunities including class viewings and rehearsals at Sydney Dance Company throughout the year.
