Mind the Gap

Mind the Gap is a free-to-access programme which helps young dance graduates to transition from higher education into the professional dance industry. Piloted in 2018 as a face-to-face programme, with Hofesh Shechter Company, for 2020 we are trialling a new online version that will allow many more new graduates to take part.

The programme will start in Autumn 2020, and run for approximately four months. Applications will be through an open call out, and graduates selected will be supported through regular online one to one sessions with South East Dance Senior Producers. External experts will also be invited to give online talks and lectures on topics such as mental health, staying healthy while on tour, how to work with a dramaturg/producer, and where to look for and find work.
