Young Professionals Program Online Audition Tour
MOVE|NYC| 2020-2021 YOUNG PROFESSIONALS PROGRAM ONLINE AUDITIONS!
WHY WE ARE HOSTING ONLINE AUDITIONS?
We at MOVE|NYC| have been following the spread of COVID-19 and want you all to know that the safety and well being of our community is our NUMBER 1 PRIORITY. With that in mind, we have decided as an organization to cancel our in-person 2020 NYC Audition Tour and instead conduct Online Auditions for the 2020/2021 Young Professionals Program. In keeping with our government's efforts to lessen the spread of the virus by limiting large group gatherings, this decision is the most responsible thing to do. We wish each and every one of you good health and safety during these unprecedented and uncertain times. Together, as a global community, we will get through this crisis and come out stronger than ever before.
WHAT IS THE YOUNG PROFESSIONALS PROGRAM?
The cornerstone of MOVE|NYC| is our tuition-free, Young Professionals Program. The Young Professionals Program is a year-round Conservatory Prep & Mentorship Program for New York City teenagers, ages 13 - 18, who demonstrate exceptional potential for a career in dance. The Young Professionals Program identifies talent at every stage of it’s technical development, from beginner to advanced, and provides critical access to opportunities for mentorship and training which prepare each young dancer for admission to collegiate conservatory programs post high school.
This robust program consists of its Summer Intensive, Winter Intensive, year-round 1-on-1 mentorship, year-round professional dance-viewing, and year-round performance opportunities through its professional youth company, The Young Professionals Ensemble. MOVE|NYC|'s Young Professionals are exposed to the rigor of a professional dance career as they develop into versatile, socially conscious, and well-rounded artists— propelling each young dancer to the next phase of their technical and artistic training.
