LeanArts Call for Applications

EXPERIMENTAL PILOT BRINGS STARTUP THINKING TO THE PERFORMING ARTS
CALL FOR APPLICATIONS: SEPTEMBER 1 – OCTOBER 1
Canada’s Performing Arts Alliance is launching a new pilot program in Toronto to help performing arts
organizations de-risk promising initiatives by applying the tools and methodologies used by technology
startups.

LEANARTS will be delivered in partnership with MaRS and The Working Group, two leaders in the
startup world in Toronto.

LEANARTS will bring together teams from a range of performing arts disciplines for a five-week crash
course in startup-style ideation. Working with experienced mentors and instructors, participants will
learn new strategies for shaping project ideas, explore new revenue models and improve their
probability of funding.

Up to ten teams will be selected to participate in the program, which begins in January 2015. The course
is structured through a mix of collaborative weekly sessions, one-on-one mentorship and assignments.
Organizations working across dance, opera, orchestra, theatre and spoken word are invited to apply by
submitting their ideas for sustainable new projects or initiatives.

“There are parallels between the startup world and the arts sector in terms of scant resources. Risk capital is
essential to research, development, and the inevitable and essential failure that comes with experimentation. Yet
in the arts, we have no money to waste. How can we learn to prototype on a small scale, test our ideas, and fail
faster and cheaper? How can we make the most of our limited resources while improving our chances at
success? We think applying Lean methodology to great ideas in the early stages of development might offer an answer to these questions. LEANARTS is the realization of this idea, and the first ever program of its kind for the arts.”

Christina Loewen: Executive Director, Opera.ca

 

Teams interested in participating have until October 1st to submit their applications.

 

Those interested in finding out more are invited to attend an information session at MaRS Discovery District on Friday,
September 12 from 5.30 p.m. to 7.30 p.m. More details can be found at leanperformingarts.com

ProArteDanza’s Summer Intensive is a four-week professional contemporary ballet program for advanced level dance students, between the age of 16 and 25, who are dedicated, disciplined, and passionate about dance.
The vision guiding the program is one of creating a “fusion dancer,” who is trained equally in both the centuries-old technique of classical ballet and in techniques of modern dances.

We expect our dancers to develop versatility, a keen stylistic sense, and adept interpretive abilities when working with choreographers. The program instills dancers with an understanding of the realities of the professional world, and the skills and sensibilities directors and choreographers seek in a performing artist. This allows them to become inspiring and desirable collaborators.
The program includes classes in: ballet, partnering, modern dance, improvisation, composition, music, and body conditioning.

In addition to the daily technique classes, every dancer participates in rehearsals of new choreography and/or ProArteDanza repertoire to challenge and explore the students’ talents. The 2014 Summer Intensive program will culminate in a weekend of performances, including a new creation piece choreographed by Shay Kuebler of Vancouver’s 605 Collective, on August 29th – 30th.

The summer dance program provides an ideal environment for dancers who are committed to achieving a higher level of technique and artistry, and who intend to pursue a career in dance. ProArteDanza is committed to providing a safe environment for students to engage with and learn from some of Canada’s most cutting edge and innovative dance professionals, including ProArteDanza company members and Artistic Directors.

Evelyn Hart: Ballet
