Professional dancers find themselves in a complex labour market upon finishing their training. They need companies in which they can develop their skills and perfect their talent in order to evolve, both personally and professionally. Wennare Dance Company presents itself to them as a great work opportunity, a serious and rigorous company that will allow them to expand their professional experience.
In its animus to promulgate dancing, Wennare Dance Company organizes workshops and magisterial classes, involving first class ballet and contemporary dancing professionals.
