Our Liberate Artists Apprentice program is an assistant training program for adult dancers and dance educators ages 19+. We invite hard-working individuals to apply to be a part of our Phoenix Fire and Focus experience team. Apprentices assist our teaching artists and receive event management training, networking options, performance opportunities, a mock audition, a photoshoot session, and so much more.
Our Liberate Artists Dance Captain Training Program is a small group extension of our mission to build confidence and promote social growth in dancers. For 10 months, dancers and their families participate in seminars and training to develop the tools for wherever dance may take them. From dance medicine and science to guest artist classes, this program is for the dancer wanting to develop their artistry, and for the families that support them.
Please note, this program does not replace your weekly training at your home studio — we are a studio-first organization. Prospective LADC trainees must get approval from their studio owner or studio director to audition for this program. Independent dancers may apply if they are receiving weekly training in their home city.
This is an audition-based program. We accept a maximum of 20 dancers each season. Liberate Artists Dance Captains assist our Liberate faculty and staff on the road and perform as Liberate Artists Ambassadors for various experiences throughout their year.
