This subject creates the opportunity for the student to apply for and undertake a secondment (or work experience) with a dance company, independent artist or dance industry organisation. The subject has two parts 1) the arrangement and completion of the secondment and 2) the presentation and/or writing, of a consequent piece of work. The student’s particular choice of a secondment (work experience) allows for the implementation of a course of study focussing on a specific dance artist, company, collective or organisation which is relevant to his or her dance development and interests. The connection and interaction with industry figures will potentially create professional links and networks for participants. Post the secondment, the observation and experience of how artists and/or key organisations create artistic work, or fulfil their objectives/s, will extend into ongoing student learning by further investigation and consideration of the skills, knowledge and experiential outcomes that the student consolidates during the secondment. Engagement in this subject will require application of skills and knowledge developed in the Bachelor of Fine Arts (Dance) program to this point and will broaden student understanding and experience of dance practice and the dance profession. Proposals are to be centred around legitimate and realistic plans made with practising dance artists/company/organisations, and/or the secondments, intensives and series of workshops offered by dance companies and organisations or centres at specified times of the year.
The dance artist/company or organisation that agrees to offer a secondment or take on a work experience student will also provide assessment and feedback for the participant. Appropriate risk assessment procedures will be followed.
If Independent Contract A has been completed (in semester 4 second year), or Independent Contract B or C is undertaken at the same time as Industry Project the proposals for these subjects are to be different.
Where possible students will be encouraged to complete the actual secondment central to the subject as an intensive in a non teaching period to facilitate minimal disruption to other subjects which have hurdle and attendance requirements.
A student’s choice of dance company or industry organisation for secondment (or work experience) and hence enrolment in Industry Project may be subject to the dance faculty’s discretion or approval.
This subject will enable student to:-
Hurdle: Attendance at regular supervision sessions and /or one to one or small group tutorials as agreed plus completion and presentation of requirements associated with these sessions. Feedback re progression through subject will occur in these sessions;
Satisfactory arrangement and completion of secondment or work experience in industry context. Standard of Completion and Feedback paperwork to be completed by appropriate dance artist/company/organisation personnel: Non teaching period or during a negotiated period of time within the semester (60%);
Practical Presentation and /or Written assignment of 1500 words or equivalent: End of Semester (40%)
