Mentorship/Coaching for Pre-Professional Dancers

About AMVTP’s Mentoring/Coaching Program:

AMVTP’s mentoring/coaching program is a one-year mentorship open to a young professional entering their junior year of high school in Fall 2021 and graduating in the class of 2023. This program is for a self-driven, self-motivated and focused female dancer of colour looking to pursue a career in dance. The mentee will work with AMVTP Artistic Director and independent Dancer-Choreographer, Alanna Morris-Van Tassel, on post-secondary school/college-preparedness as well as life and business skills.

This mentorship includes research on scholarships ($$$); a solo dance commission (for auditions and scholarships); college essay review and editorial assistance; and letters of recommendation (as needed). The mentee will have access to Alanna’s global network of dance artists, including top educators at leading educational institutions, directors, dancers and choreographers working in a multiplicity of backgrounds—companies as well as freelance–encompassing a wide range of aesthetics, and geographies.

Secondly, Alanna is working as a YoungArts ambassador this summer and would love to leave you with information about how your students can apply (and win up to $10,000 towards their education) while nurturing their artistry and receiving mentorship and coaching from an array of notable dance professionals.
