Candoco Dance Company, a company of disabled and non-disabled dancers, announced that online fashion and cosmetics retailer ASOS will support a residential dance training intensive for young dancers in summer 2019.

This partnership will enable Candoco to offer dancers aged 18 to 30 free places on its Training Intensive, which will run for 2 weeks and give disabled and non-disabled dancers a route into the dance profession.

Charlotte Darbyshire, Artistic Co-Director at Candoco, said, “there is so much physical talent and artistic potential out there among young disabled and non-disabled adults and a huge demand for wider representation in the dance sector and yet there is simply not enough access to training or routes into the profession. This exciting partnership with ASOS will enable Candoco to use our expertise in inclusive dance practice to provide an unparalleled learning opportunity for these young artists.”

Auditions will be held in May. Dancers interested in applying for the Candoco Dance Company Training Intensive should contact [email protected] for more information.
