RESET 2020 is a series of unique initiatives to support professional freelance dancers (at all career stages) BACK INTO ACTION.
These include a full class and training programme, mentoring opportunities alongside health and well-being coaching taking place at our home at Here East.
The programme has been carefully developed by Studio Wayne McGregor with Company Wayne McGregor dancers to meet their needs and those of other freelance contemporary dancers. The programme will be delivered by the company dancers and teachers drawn from our regular pool of diverse and world-renowned company class teachers and trainers.
The FREE programme will commence in August 2020 and there will be several options to interact:
- Ten week intensive training residency for experienced professional dancers:
A programme that builds in intensity, starting with at least two hours of class per day and building to two technique classes plus repertoire and fitness sessions.
This programme mirrors the activity that our company dancers will be undertaking to get back into action.
- Two week intensive training programme for professional dancers:
At least two hours of technique class per day.
- Weekend workshops and labs for recent graduates:
Day long courses consisting of technique class followed by teaching of repertoire and exploration of creative tasks, led by Company Wayne McGregor dancers
- Mentoring support from peers
- Access to talks on various aspects of being a freelance artist including finance, tax, marketing, fundraising, producing, health and wellbeing and nutrition
Elements of the programme will be live streamed to allow access for dancers from outside London and the UK.
