Registration to the Mentoring Exchange Program is open now for the next Tri-mester (January-March 2021) and you can you choose the Mentors you want to work with.

Will be part of the program with their vision of expertise with a dual purpose:
to allow participants to expand their knowledge and skills as a danc-er/performer/choreographer alongside preparation for the working dance world by both in-person guidance and remote mentoring when necessary, promoting the next generation of dancers.
There will be a direct channel of communication between you and the Mentor through conversations via Internet by sending videos and working from time to time on tasks assigned by the them.

Remote mentorship will include career development and auditioning skills.
Advise can also be given on navigating dance opportunities and the research pro-cess for companies.

Grant/residency guidance is also available, which is meant to help the mentees in terms of the application process including helping students research grant and resi-dency opportunities, reviewing and offering feedback on applications including coaching on choreography and performance.

There are also opportunities to engage further with the Mentor in their home cities such as Los Angeles with Spenser Theberge and in Madrid with the Full time company led by Fabian Thome which will also give students the opportunity to continue working and evolve their experience to the maximum by inviting them (at personal expense) to work for 2 weeks so they can get the most out of their experience. (Covid permitting)
