Friday, March 1, marks the start of Live at LICA’s Dance Cuts Weekend 2013, a jam-packed programme where students and young artists can take part in workshops, perform short extracts of their work to a professional panel and find out what it takes to make it in the world of dance.
Making It Happen in Dance, on Saturday, March 2, sees an expert panel of practitioners, including Stine Nilson, Kip Johnson and Company Chameleon, providing advice on what it takes to become a professional dancer, choreographer or dance producer/manager, and offering tips for survival in the sector.
Dance Jam will provide an opportunity for everyone taking part in the weekend to dance together.
Later on, the Dance Cuts Showcase features a range of dance film, installation and contemporary choreography from the North West presented in association with Ludus Dance.
