What We Do :
Our unique youth company is for the daring and courageous young dancer, wanting a real and sustainable career in dance.
We provide high end, boutique training in all facets of contemporary dance, theatre and performance. Our training focus is in techniques relevant to the professional contemporary dance world; improvisation, composition and dance theatre skills. Our teachers are highly sought after industry professionals all with international careers under their belts.
We pride ourselves on being the only youth company of its kind in NSW, providing cutting-edge performance opportunities such as immersive and interactive theatre, site-specific devising and performance, film and photo shoots, collaborations and performing in unusual spaces.
After two years of operation we have become quickly known for our unique and provocative performances, and our ability to harness the talents of each dancer, excelling them to new heights.
In 2020, we will be delivering a full year's program for both the Junior and Senior Companies. Contemporary dance is a more intellectually and emotionally challenging dance form, that requires a deeper commitment and enquiry as a student, we have observed over the passed few years that the dancers who commit for at least a year with us benefit and excel the most.
A year with the same dancers will allow us to go into depth with each dancer over the course of the year to help them reach their full potential.
The program will run with the school term. Each company will participate in a mid-year show, a shoot and other exciting, creative projects throughout the year (approximately 3 performance projects across the year. In the past we have made semi-immersive/interactive works, short films, performed through train carriages, in urban outdoors and in other unusual spaces.
This is guideline for the intended outcomes for the year, to give you an idea of how your year with Wild Hearts Co will look.
