Devised and delivered by Kerry Nicholls Dance to boost professional dancers mid-career, we are offering rigorous technical training and thought-provoking workshops from expert guest artists, all underpinned by a tailor-made, individual mentoring process.

The PMP supports sustainable artistic lives and provides an inspiring, powerful space for thinking and doing. At a critical point in a dancer’s career, this four-month programme will prepare a small, select group of dancers for an ever-changing and varied job landscape. This begins with an extended three-week studio-intensive encompassing classical and contemporary technique, a varied platform of workshops exposing a range of performative approaches and work on audition techniques, CV/show reel advice, networking opportunities and professional development seminars – all delivered by internationally sought-after artists.

Continuing on from the studio-intensive, Kerry will regularly mentor each artist on a one-to-one basis for a further three months to encourage and confront current practice within a person-centered structure and support new thinking and artistic development. The PMP supports artists who are seeking the challenge and inspiration to find new ways of becoming leaders of their own careers.
