The Springs Dance Company Apprenticeship Scheme is an intensive dance course that focuses on the creation, performance and teaching of contemporary dance work inspired by and expressive of the Christian faith.
There are two courses that make up the Apprenticeship Scheme, Elevate Dance Company and Elevate Dance Foundation. The courses run alongside each other and offer a rigorous dance training in a Christian context. Participants learn from the extensive professional experience of Springs Dance Company.
Elevate Dance Company is a ten month course which culminates in a national or international tour in which students perform and teach as Springs' daughter company, Elevate. The course focuses primarily on developing the technical proficiency, performance skills, and community experience required for touring.
Elevate Dance Foundation is a three month course that offers students a chance to develop their dance skills in an enjoyable and supportive environment. The course provides the opportunity to acquire some of the key skills and experiences that will be valuable to those wishing to initiate dance in community settings. The course also supports students to develop their particular interests further through an individual project.
