Intensive: Alleyne Dance Company
Monday 13 - Friday 17 November
Alleyne Dance present an intensive five-day training programme, hosted at Greenwich Dance for the first time. The programme provides an opportunity to connect with Kristina and Sadé Alleyne, and to gain an insight into their distinctive movement vocabulary and creative process.
Each day will be split into three parts: Contemporary Class, Repertory and Creative Session. This will be a physically demanding programme involving complex and technical vocabulary, where participants will develop their performance skills, stamina and creative language.
Alleyne Dance are searching for a small number of dancers to join the Intensive as Interns. The selected dancers will have free access to the Intensive, plus the opportunity to work more closely with Kristina and Sadé 15:00-17:30 each day to develop a short solo. These solos will be professionally filmed and available for the dancers to use in training, auditions and other platforms.
To apply for an Internship, please send your CV, a dance video and letter of interest to: firstname.lastname@example.org by 7 October (please use Alleyne Dance Internship Opportunity as the subject of your email)
