The Burgeon – a free professional development opportunity for dance artists. A collaborative intensive for recent graduates created by recent graduates.

Where: Siobhan Davies Studios, London, UK

When: From 04/01/2022 to 07/01/2022

Deadline for applications: 05/12/2021

The Burgeon is an invitation for 12 selected dance graduates to test their skills and learn from their peers through this free intensive.

The participants will, in turn, share their expertise by leading an hour and 15-minute-long session. The content of the session is of your own choosing: you can teach a movement class or workshop a choreographic idea. We want to offer this space for recently graduated freelance dance artists to train and keep their practice alive, after leaving training.

The Burgeon’s aim is to emphasize the resourceful character of the new generation of dance artists, encourage collaboration, experimentation & knowledge exchange and facilitate networking.

How to apply: If you would like to be considered for this opportunity, you need to:

– be a freelance dance artist who graduated in 2020 or 2021
– be based in the UK
– be available for the full length of the project: from the 4th to the 7th of January 2022, 10 am to 3 pm

Please send the following to with “Dance artist application” as the subject of the email:

– a CV
– a cover letter indicating why you would like to be part of this first edition of the Burgeon and what is the content of the session you would like to lead

Costs for participants: FREE
