Where: Worldwide via Zoom
When: February 1 – 19, 2021
Deadline for applications: Registration open until program reaches capacity. Space is limited.
This 3-Week Dance Mentorship entails enhancing technique, developing choreographic skills, the creation of a dance film, and relationship building. The goal is for mentees to work with Charles Slender-White and FACT/SF company members and take away specific movement execution tools and choreographic skills that they can use in their own practices as dancers and directors, as well as build long lasting relationships in the field.
Mentees can choose to participate in one, two, or all three weeks of the program. It is also possible to participate in technique only, repertory only, or both. Technique and rehearsals take place Monday through Thursday, while Fridays are special movement practice sessions with Guest Artists and Discussions with Guest Speakers.
