Dance Makers Collective’s Connect program is an intensive for early career artists and new graduates, designed to help them transition into the professional dance sector. Through classes and workshops in contemporary dance, self-producing, independent career management, improvisation and composition, artists will gain first-hand professional training, learn vital job-ready skills, and build valuable networks and support as they embark on a career in dance.

Connect will run as a four-day intensive from December 13 – 16, 10am – 6pm. On Saturday 16 December, the program will conclude with an end-of-year party, open to the greater independent dance sector.

To ensure the best possible experience, Connect has a limited capacity of 22 participants – when we reach capacity, the program will be closed to registrations.

The program will be facilitated by practicing NSW-based artists and producers.  In order to cater the concluding panel session to the needs of the participants, applicants are asked to pose questions to us that will best serve their interests and needs at this time.

DMC will also facilitate two evenings of lo-fi showings of works in progress for participants to share their work with peers and local Sydney artists.

Artist facilitators, workshop leaders and panel members in the program in 2023 include Richard Cilli, Omer Backley-Astrachan, Lee-Anne Litton, Alejandro Rolandi, Martin del Amo, Vicki Van Hout, Jasmin Sheppard, Azzam Mohamed and Jane McKernan, with DMC members Miranda Wheen, Mitchell Christie, Carl Sciberras, Eliza Cooper and Ella Watson-Heath.

DMC is committed to equitable programs, if you require financial assistance to participate in the program, or have any other questions, please let us know via email at eo@dancemakerscollective.com.au.

Registrations are now open and will close once we have reached capacity.
