Every year SEAD is holding Auditions for entrance into the four year undergraduate professional dance education program, the F.I.R.E. Year (every two years) and the two postgraduate programs I.C.E. – Choreographer´s Year and BODHI PROJECT – Professional Company Year. The first round auditions take place in numerous different cities around the world. Candidates who pass the first round successfully are invited to the second round audition in Salzburg where the best dancers are chosen for a study at SEAD.
Undergraduate program - artist in process
SEAD searches for candidates with a high level of technical expertise, who have curiosity and intelligence, are modest and brave in their pursuit of performance and choreographic experience and knowledge. Applicants must be 18 years or older.
Postgraduate programs - artist in practice
(I.C.E. and BODHI PROJECT)
SEAD searches for candidates who have and can demonstrate a genuine engagement with the form of dance, who are mature and responsible for their own education, who will bring an excited and sincere presence to SEAD.
International Choreographic Exchange. I.C.E. is a one-year postgraduate program that offers young choreographers the opportunity to create their own work independently within a supportive artistic environment. At SEAD, I.C.E. students will have the benefit of dancers, rehearsal space, performance opportunities and feedback from a faculty of international dance professionals.
BODHI PROJECT is an internationally touring contemporary dance company with its home base in SEAD, Salzburg. It is a platform for international choreographers and dancers. The company selects every year and a half six or seven mature talented dancers who are serious about themselves as emerging dance artists and who will profit from 18 months of training, creation and touring. The dancers work together with four internationally renowned choreographers that will lead and guide them to the next step in their dance career. BODHI PROJECT is also recognized as a post graduate study program and is rewarded with a diploma at the culmination of study.
F.I.R.E. - feel, inspire, reflect & engage!
SEAD believes that the FIRE program is a chance for those students who have a passion for dance to study intensively, on a one year basis, in preparation to either audition once again with a more nourished and developed technique or to approach dance with a more defined goal and focus.
Basis: Yoga, Ballet, Contemporary
Focus of the school year: Reinforcing technical skills and performativity
