EVOLVE is a full day workshop for professional dancers exploring life beyond a dance career, offering practical tools, insight and inspiration

-          Explore the journey of a dancer’s career with like-minded people.

-          Get the tools to develop your own personal action plan and discover your potential.

-          Learn how to manage a lifelong career beyond performance.

-          Enjoy the unique opportunity to hear personal transition stories from DCD retrained dancers, ask questions and gain a network of peers.

EVOLVE workshops are open to all dancers – from final year students to those with years of professional experience who are exploring the next stage, to those who are already post-transition.

Even if you’re not planning to transition in the near future, EVOLVE can support you to feel prepared for your long term future.

Dancers from all genres of professional dance are welcome, from classical and contemporary to musical theatre and commercial.
