Launch Glasgow 2018

2 Nov 2017

Launch is a day-long professional development conference for young dancers transitioning into a professional career. In 2018 Launch will be held in Glasgow, 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

In preparation for our Launch event, this year we have constructed an online survey to be completed by previous dance graduates that will provide us with the content dancers feel is necessary for the event.

We would be grateful for as many responses as possible to ensure the event meets the needs and requests of the dancers.
