we have just released our Jul/Aug Full-Time Performing Arts Guide for 2018. This issue is dedicated to the dancer embarking on full-time dance training. We have listed 43 of our top institutions and included their course outlines so you can make the best choice for you.
With an estimated 5000 jobs available for dancers next year in total – so that includes everyone already employed – it is imperative for todays dancer to not only be very well trained but to also be smart in how they approach their craft. In this issue we give you advice and contacts so you can start networking and building your profile in the industry. This advice is from dancers currently working in the industry you want to work in.
Full-time training is very intense and the first term can really push you to your limits and set you on your course for the rest of the year. More dancers sustain injuries that they take into their professional years at this time than that at any other time. We help you with this and let you know what you can do to ensure your body and mind can cope. This advice comes from the latest research in dance injuries from Australian physiotherapists, nutritionists and our own in-house psychologist.
We also feature 3 double pages of pics of you doing what you love. This issue we cover The Australian Cecchetti International Ballet Scholarship, Victorian State Schools Spectacular and our very own associated dance school students.
We talk with Sasha Lian who is currently in Bodyguard The Musical and Tony Keeble who is assisting this years Wakakirri competitors perfect their routines.
Did you know that ‘marking it’ could have a detrimental affect on your training? High School dance teacher Shelly Kelly investigates.
Clare Morehen ex QLD Ballet principal dancer now making her way in the freelance world isolates that factor that drives us to dance and reminds us that this ‘passion’ can change and you know what? That is ok!
There is so much good stuff in this issue all expertly put together for you by dancers, who have all been through full-time and gone on to work, choreograph and teach in this industry. They are just like you.
