Our course is designed to give each cast member a true representation of being a young pre professional dancer and an exciting year working as a junior company with our experienced and highly professional staff. Our premises has excellent facilities with our 12 studios and fully functioning theatre.
During the year, starting in September, there are weeks that are training weeks and there are weeks that are creation weeks. Encore Dance Company in fact has two different schedules.
The first schedule takes into account of all the daily core subjects – ballet, contemporary, jazz, commercial dance, pas de deux, variations, fitness class and ongoing academic work for the Trinity Diploma.
The second schedule when an external choreographer is here they have rehearsal slots for creation or learning existing works. The cast work with the choreographers who will create on them. As well as continuing rigorous day-to-day training in all of the core and supplementary subjects.
By the end of the second term several works will have been made that will form the annual showcase.
