The Professional Training Program – Africa Guzman Dance Project is oriented to provide the dancer with the necessary bridge between their academic training and the professional world. Seeking artistic excellence and within a rigorously professional environment, the dancer is provided with a complete advanced level of training through classes, workshops and performances. AGDP is the opportunity for students to discover the reality of the profession, working directly with choreographers, performing on stage and covering a wide repertoire with different styles and thus developing their artistic identity and stage facility.
Africa Guzman Dance Project addresses the needs of dancers ages 17 and up by producing versatile dancers who have experienced a wide range of technical skills. Throughout the year, dancers will have guest teachers and workshops with choreographers that offer dancers an artistic openness and make them adaptable to diverse and new approaches.
AGDP’s diverse programming features a wide repertoire and styles, encompassing classical ballet, neoclassical, contemporary and new avant-garde works. The purpose is to allow young dancers to work with choreographers and thus approach a varied repertoire representative of today’s professional dance community.
The professional training of Africa Guzman Dance Project is a springboard for the professional integration of students and paves the way for their future career. Master classes, choreographic workshops and performance opportunities through the Africa Guzman Dance Project are the backbone of this project.
AGDP provides training to the dancer that allows them to acquire the level of technical and artistic ability expected by today’s choreographers and companies.
In addition, AGDP facilitates your insertion into the professional world by preparing you for auditions and providing you with individual counseling. Upon completion of the complete training the dancer will be able to obtain video and photographic material.
From September to June, in an exclusive environment, AGDP professional training provides you with personalized attention and work.
