Launch Scotland 2018

Launch is a day-long professional development conference for young dancers transitioning into a professional career.

In 2018 Launch will be held in Scotland, where participants will explore a variety of career paths through a mix of workshops, seminars and direct practical advice provided by leading dance professionals.

The aim of the event is to give students and recent graduates an insight into life as a dance professional, such as a choreographer, dance educator, dance manager and many more. As well as this we aim to signpost them to organisations and individuals who can support them in their future career development.

The day will include a variety of talks, panel discussions, practical workshops and presentations from industry professionals on a range of topics. Potential subject areas include –

  • How to secure and prepare for auditions
  • Audition techniques
  • Healthy Dancer Awareness
  • The importance of branding
  • Applying for funding
  • Tax Returns
  • Working as a choreographer
  • Routes into teaching

Launch 2018 will take place in the spring, with the confirmed date coming soon. Watch this space for locations, times and speakers.
