Auditions for admired London dance school
World-leading dance conservatory London Contemporary Dance School (LCDS) will be holding auditions for its highly successful undergraduate and postgraduate contemporary dance programs in Toronto, New York, San Francisco and Vancouver in January 2015.
The undergraduate and postgraduate dance programs at LCDS prepare dance artists for a physically rigorous and highly creative profession. The school ensures that its students are versed in the techniques that will enable them to achieve success within the professional dance industry, in whatever shape that may take in the future. An LCDS education is grounded in a culture that celebrates the young emergent artistic voice, which gives it space, acknowledgment and above all, works to develop its uniqueness.
London Contemporary Dance School is a founding affiliate of the Conservatoire for Dance and Drama and the degree programs are validated by the University of Kent. Each year, over 90 percent of LCDS graduates go on to work professionally in dance, with many of the world’s most respected companies including Hofesh Shechter, New Adventures, Darmstadt, Jasmin Vardimon Company, National Dance Company Wales, Richard Alston Dance Company, Scottish Dance Theatre and Punchdrunk. In addition, graduates are to be found choreographing and teaching throughout the world.
Studying abroad offers the opportunity for students to make connections in the European dance world and to diversify their educational experience. London Contemporary Dance School students have the chance to collaborate, create and perform work, both with their peers, with world-class professional dance artists from companies such as Trisha Brown, Hofesh Shechter, Merce Cunningham, Kidd Pivot, Siobhan Davies, Akram Khan and organisations such as Danish Dance Theatre, SEAD, Guildhall School of Music and Drama, and Wimbledon School of Art and Design.
Auditions will be held for undergraduates seeking entry to the BA (Hons) Contemporary Dance track, as well as postgraduates seeking entry to the MA Contemporary Dance Advanced Dance Studies, Performance (EDge) or Choreography tracks. For more information on courses, visit www.lcds.ac.uk.
