The Tanya Pearson Academy is pleased to announce the launch of its new Full Time DANCERS program commencing January 2018. This program will run in conjunction with the Academy’s already existing Full Time Classical Ballet program, and is designed for the classical contemporary dancer. The program is unique in that it will be based on the solid classical ballet technique and training provided by the Academy (daily classical and pointe classes with the Tanya Pearson faculty), however will expose young dancers to the broader contemporary styles of dance, improvisation, choreography and the opportunity to work with industry leaders in the contemporary dance space.

This program will suit the dancer who is wanting a professional career in a classical company that predominantly performs contemporary and neo classical repertoire. The new full time Dancers Program is aimed at preparing the versatile classical/contemporary dancer most sought after by company directors today.

Auditions will take place on Saturday 9th September 2017.  Please email [email protected]assicalcoaching.com for further information.
