Mind The Gap
South East Dance and Hofesh Shechter Company announce Mind the Gap, a unique mentoring programme for recent dance graduates
We’re thrilled to be working with Hofesh Shechter Company, offering seven outstanding dance graduates from across the south east a unique and industry-leading professional development opportunity.
Mind the Gap will provide the successful candidates with a comprehensive induction to the inner workings of a leading company, offering the opportunity to attend HSC classes and rehearsals, a 5-day artist development workshop at Trinity Laban and the chance to perform in East Wall; a large-scale participatory project with East London Dance, LIFT and Historic Royal Palaces.
With a focus on supporting graduates from minority backgrounds who hail from regional areas, the aim is to generate sustainable practice for many artists who might otherwise have little access to such opportunity. It is a flagship programme that South East Dance will increasingly look to roll out, particularly once doors open to the organisations new home and creative hub for artists, The Dance Space, in early 2020.
