Proud to be supporting GradPro 2023
When you have a bunch of super talented dancers supported and encouraged by some of the UKs top dance professionals, coaches and mentors then there is bound to be an exciting outcome. The first GradPro, created by Julie Bowers and Brandon Lawrence, took to the stage in 2022 and did exactly what it hoped to achieve…it gave vocational dance graduates a much needed boost post pandemic and opened up some exciting performance opportunities.
Dansez has worked alongside Julie and Brandon from day one when the original concepts were being developed and has been a proud supporter of all the great work the GradPro team are doing. Like with all new events the first one is the toe dipper, with an element of trepidation about its' success. In this case there really was no need for anyone to be worried because the team behind it are the cream of the UK dance world. As the entry for GradPro23 opens there has already been an enormous amount of support from high profile individuals and organisations from the dance world who want to be part of its success story.
At GradPro22 four award winners were given contracts in top UK ballet companies, a true testament to the calibre of the graduates and also the commitment made to GradPro by the UK ballet companies. We are delighted to continue our support for GradPro and are eagerly waiting the success stories of 2023.
