Professional Intensive & Secondments

Company secondments available for tertiary dance students.

Sydney Dance Company’s Professional Intensive offers tertiary dance students, graduates and professional dancers aged 18+ a valuable opportunity to work with Australia’s leading contemporary dance company.

Participating dancers will be challenged both intellectually and physically through warm up classes, creative tasks and learning company repertoire, during insightful workshops led by Sydney Dance Company teachers and associates.

A highlight of the intensive is the unique experience of observing Company dancers working with Rafael Bonachela in either creative process or repertoire rehearsal sessions. Participants will be able to view and experience the detailed articulation and quality of Rafael Bonachela’s rich and sophisticated movement vocabulary.

Further information regarding Sydney Dance Company’s 2019 Professional Intensive dates will become available in October 2018.

Sydney Dance Company offers a limited number of secondment placements to elite tertiary students studying dance in Australia. We currently have partnerships with a small number of tertiary dance programs around Australia. All requests for secondments must be submitted to the Sydney Dance Company education coordinator via the Head of Dance of the Tertiary program.

At this time Sydney Dance Company are unable to accept work experience students.

A good way to gain an insight into the daily life of the Company is to attend our school holiday workshops, in particular the Intensive Workshop and Contemporary Extended workshops.
