About the programme
A partnership project between ZooNation: The Kate Prince Company and Dancers’ Career Development (DCD), SHIFT supports freelance Hip Hop dancers (with at least 6 years experience) to explore different career options beyond the stage. Each year the scheme supports 3 artists to access financial assistance, mentoring and coaching towards exploring options to support their career beyond the stage.
- Receive a grant of up to £2000 to be used towards retraining or exploring a different career
- Attend a group coaching session led by DCD Director of Coaching Isabel Mortimer designed to offer the dancers a safe space to reflect on their career journeys to date and take positive action moving forward.
- Become part of a DCD’s Beyond Dance Mentoring Programme, powered by Moving Ahead, designed to give dance artists the opportunity to create connections and networks outside of the dance sector.
- Be invited to attend DCD’s REACH Ambassador programme for a year.
