…enables dancers to widen their sphere of artistic influences and make connections with artists working in other parts of the dance community.

The Performance Mentoring Programme (PMP) is delivered biennially to prepare a small, select group of artists for an ever-changing and varied job landscape. The four-month programme offers rigorous technical training, thought-provoking workshops and inspiring seminars, all led by a team of leading industry experts, and underpinned by a tailor-made, individual mentoring scheme.
Through challenging content and an approach that is expertly personalised to the needs of the individual, you will receive support, provocation and positive affirmation, alongside the opportunity to spend qualitative and reflective time with a network of like-minded artists.
Building on the success of the internationally acclaimed PMP in 2014, 2015 and 2017, KND launched the next initiative to commence in the summer of 2020. Sadly, we have had to postpone this programme and are set to re-advertise in spring 2021.
As part of KND’s professional development offer, we are excited to announce the pilot of a new Creative Coaching initiative for established artists from across the international dance sector.
