Developing, encouraging and cultivating young talent is a key feature of JV2, the Professional Development Diploma training programme established by Jasmin Vardimon Educational Company in 2012. With its core focus to develop versatile and multidisciplinary performers, students on the programme work collectively as a company training alongside Jasmin Vardimon Company and its professional repertoire and creative methodology. The programme culminates annually in a national tour which features work by young choreographers and or associates of the company, as well as offers Creative Internships for young lighting design technicians and costumes designers to add production values to the touring work.
Over the last four years, 51 students, hand picked personally by Jasmin Vardimon, have successfully completed the programme and we are proud to report that 83% of them are currently employed in the sector. With 44% as professional performers, 25% as education facilitators, and 14% as choreographers, JV2 is indeed proving a successful pathway to employment.
