Applications and auditions for SDC Pre-Professional Year

Sydney Dance Company is pleased to invite applications from talented Australian and New Zealand dancers wishing to take part in its Pre-Professional Year program in 2018.

Now in it’s fifth year, Sydney Dance Company’s Pre-Professional Year provides a unique opportunity for aspiring professional dancers to attend a one-year nationally accredited course with Australia’s leading contemporary dance company.

Lead by Linda Gamblin, the Pre-Professional program is designed to be rigorous, challenging and rich in practical skills development and professional career preparation while encouraging individualism and diversity. Students are provided with opportunities to explore the endless possibilities of contemporary dance, and fully immerse themselves into the role of a professional artist. Each student's personal creative voice is embraced and nurtured, encouraging them to develop into reflective and forward-thinking dance artists.

The Pre-Professional Year delivers a nationally recognised qualification, CUA50113 Diploma of Dance (Elite Performance) through an auspice arrangement with Australian Teachers of Dancing Limited (RTO 31624).

Students will work with some of Australia’s most renowned choreographers and dance educators with a major performance opportunity at the end of the year. Students will develop their technique, artistry and performance skills alongside Sydney Dance Company in a professional environment.

The course will also provide students with invaluable networking opportunities with the artistic team from Sydney Dance Company, as well as leading Australian and international choreographers.
Students will study at Sydney Dance Company’s home, based in the stunning arts precinct at Walsh Bay and be exposed to the endless cultural and artistic experiences that Sydney has to offer.

Applications close August 20. Auditions take place on September 25.
