Next is a Daf project that redefines the standards of the artist’s educational and training process and redesigns the concept of a Post Graduate program for dancers preparing for the auditions, structuring a path that is currently unique in the world.
It is aimed exclusively at dancers and students who have already completed a professional development project.
The admission to the Next course, regardless of the previously carried out study plan, the degree of effective capacity and maturation of the candidate will be evaluated by means of a hearing.
After 10 years of activity, in a consolidated process of relationships and collaborations with artists, directors and companies in the professional dance world and after having led many of our students to their careers, the DAF rewrites and reformulates again an idea, a new form and a substance for a path for future professionals.
Next, through a dedicated class, will offer the opportunity to work on a specific program aimed at deepening choreographic techniques and languages through the creation of six original works outlined in each season, six première created exclusively for students admitted to NEXT, staged in evening performances organized monthly in the “DAF Performance Series” context.
Through this path, the student will travel in a progressive expansion of being on stage, will be part of the construction of a choreographic repertoire that will see the preparation of these six works, then a specific and in-depth knowledge of six languages of six different artists.
The construction of this choreographic repertoire is obviously completed by the normal work plan and daily study of classical and contemporary technique lessons and will see the conclusion of the last two months of the season to the preparation and staging of the new creations in front of an International Commission, a moment of opportunity and concrete possibilities for one’s professional career.
The advantages of Next are clear for all those students who want to concretely interpret the need of the current dance system, where the international market requires companies and performers increasingly able to communicate a real mastery of their own physical, emotional and mental instrument. Next offers at the same time the possibility for dancers close to the professional career to be observed throughout the year, to be known by a growing number of directors and choreographers who animate the DAF world. ]
