News: CandoCo

Tuesday 10 August 2004

CandoCo Dance Company in partnership with the Department for Education and Skills are launching the UK’s first Foundation Course in Dance for disabled dancers. This is a unique programme for disabled students preparing for careers as dance artists.

The course will commence in September, based at CandoCo’s studio in London and will provide a core grounding in contemporary dance with an opportunity to experience other dance and performance styles.

The course is designed to prepare students for more advanced training and to provide intensive exposure to technique, performance and movement exploration.

This course is free and students will be eligible for maintenance support.

“This is an exciting initiative for CandoCo and a timely advance in opportunities available to disabled dancers. We meet many talented disabled dancers throughout the UK and we hope to see some of them progress from this course into further training and on to the profession.”

Sue Smith, Associate Director, CandoCo Dance Company
