We are looking for a male scholarship dancer!

In Summer 2018, Vadstena-Akademien will present Solen och Nordstjärnan at Vadstena slott.

We are now looking for a male applicant with basic experience in baroque dance for scholarship in dance. Baroque dance requires strong footwork, musicality, balance and coordination in particular, but skills in acrobatics, acting and mime are also a plus. An interest in entering into another era and collaborating with singers and musicians in the opera context is essential. Professional dance training and some basic experience of baroque dance are requirements. Participating dancers receive payment in the form of a grant for all the days they spend in Vadstena. (See more detailed info below.)

We are looking for a male dancer born in 1987 or later.
Choreographer: Karin Modigh


24-25 March 2018, rehearsals in Stockholm
15 June – 9 August 2018, rehearsals and performances in Vadstena


Video of applicant performing baroque dance + a video performing any dance genre of your choice

Thanks to our donors, Vadstena-Akademien can financially support scholarship holders during their stay in Vadstena and their future education at the Academy. They receive a daily payment in the form of a grant to cover their food and accommodation.
