A Dance Journey - Hong Kong Dance Alliance Fellowship
Most local choreographers work as freelance artists without any regular support from art managers, administrators, or agents. The increasing overseas exchange opportunities for local dance talents have also intensified the need for agency support and professional guidance. The Alliance is very keen on supporting artists by providing holistic administrative assistance and management that takes into account artistic goals for potential candidates in need. It is also eager to instigate open dialogue with dance artists on innovative projects and ways and means to develop sustainable support for projects and artists.
The fellowship aims to:
- Match new choreographic talents with senior dance practitioners as their mentors to provide guidance and artistic development advice.
- Provide in-kind publicity, brand building and administration support for projects artists are planning to engage in, to help them advance their careers.
- Offer assistance to selected choreographic artists in broadening their artistic development, clarifying their aims and vision, and identifying and gaining the skills and knowledge needed to nurture their careers.
All local choreographers who are willing to commit to consistent engagement with dance are eligible to apply. Graduates from local institutes of performing arts who are eager to start developing their career in choreography are also eligible to apply.
