Artistes In Making v2.0

About

Join dancers from diverse backgrounds and immerse in a full-fledged dance training with one of Singapore’s dance studios, housing the largest faculty of professional instructors.

A.I.M is a training initiative by Converge Studios, to further develop, hone and enhance dancers in their skills and experience. This program is unique in its carefully planned structure, meeting the rising needs of the local industry where more generations of dancers are pursuing the art form in utmost competency.

Frequently Asked Questions (FAQs)

Q: Can I join any of the programs if I have no background in dance?

A: It will be recommended for you to sign up for courses or start trying Open Classes first, as these training programs will be more beneficial to dancers who already have a certain level of proficiency and experience.

 

Q: What’s the difference between the versatility program and the 3 other specialization programs?

A: The versatility program focuses on helping you get exposed to multiple genres that will eventually aid you in adapting to several genres, while the specialization programs focus on the essence and necessary skills of that genre. Specialization programs will be suitable for dancers who already know what genre(s) they have a focus on.

 

Q: How are the weekly trainings like?

A: Intensive for sure! 3 hours weekly with our assigned faculty members to get your skills upgraded.

 

Q: How big will each programs’ intake be?

A: There is no minimum number this time round, but of course the quality of the dancers signing up is important. Proficiency is what we’re looking out for.

 

Q: Can I choose my mentor?

A: Unfortunately not. Mentors are allocated to you on a random basis. Whichever mentor you’re allocated, we’re certain he/she will be beneficial to your growth!

 

Q: Will I be the only mentee to my mentor?

A: There is a chance you might not be, as each mentor will be overlooking several mentees.

 

Q: Is there a chance that I may not get accepted into the program?

A: Yes you might, unfortunately. As we’re looking to have a proficient pool of participants in each program, do send in your best videos!

 

Q: For the video submissions, do I have to be dancing solo?

A: It would be a bonus if you are doing a solo in that class! But group videos are fine, so long as we can see you.

 

Q: Must the audition video be from Open Classes, or can it be a video recorded out of class?

A: Videos submitted have to be in an Open Class environment, and not from self practices.

 

Q: How will we get the opportunities to perform for gigs?

A: Our mentors and program coordinators will be constantly observing your growth and progress over the entire duration of the programs. And should we have any upcoming gigs that we deem you suitable for, there comes your chance!
